Welcome to the Alpine Guesthouse & Refuge Pederü in S. Vigilio
Since the 1950s, the Refuge Pederü in S. Vigilio has been inviting holidaymakers and daily guests to make a tasty stopover or to spend the night in the mountains. As soon as you enter the Pederü, you will be greeted by the warm smile of Erika at the reception -
so you will immediately feel like home!
Situated in an idyllic location, directly in the heart of the Dolomites of South Tyrol - UNESCO World Heritage Site, our mountain refuge is the ideal starting point for exciting adventures in the midst of nature. How about a hiking tour in the beautiful Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park? We're right in the middle! Or do you prefer a panoramic bike tour to San Cassiano?
Families can also spend their time in our refuge: while kids have fun on the slide at the playground, parents can enjoy some sunshine and relaxation on our lawn or on the terrace. Snow lovers instead can go cross-country skiing, ski touring and snowshoeing in the surrounding area. Moreover, the Plan de Corones, South Tyrol's no. 1 ski mountain, is located close to our refuge.
At dinner, our chef Walter will spoil you with his tasty South Tyrolean dishes. Afterward, you can spend a sociable evening in our cozy wooden Stube or let review the day in your homely room. In the morning the inviting scent of coffee will guide you into the breakfast room... and here‘s Miriam, waiting for you with a rich mountain breakfast - for a great start into the day!
Are you ready for an unforgettable mountain holiday?
We look forward to welcoming you!

A look into the past...
The origins of the Refuge Pederü date back to the First World War, when the village of Pederü served as a military camp for the Kaiserjäger (Emperor’s Hunters) and the mountain hut as a barrack for the officers. It was only after the Second World War that the wooden hut slowly turned into a mountain refuge, which today is called Pederü!

Active winter holidays in S. Vigilio and surroundings
Hooray hooray, the snow's here! Let's really enjoy it: whether skiing, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, ski touring or snowshoeing -
the nearby Plan de Corones and the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park offer plenty of entertainment!
Do you want to get where no lift can take you? Then let's go on a ski tour into the snowy Val Badia!
Climb to the top on skis in the midst of unspoilt nature, along picturesque deep-snow slopes, surrounded by impressive panoramic views oft he imposing peaks of the Dolomites - all around you can enjoy the silence of winter.
The two ski tours to the Monte del Lago and to the Sasso delle Dieci are highly recommended.
In 2009, the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Nature Park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site together with the Dolomites, and deservedly: over 25,000 hectares of breathtaking lakes and mountain landscapes, sometimes blooming sometimes snow-kissed alpine meadows, rare species of animals such as marmots, ibexes and chamois and - last but not least - the pale, legendary Dolomite peaks, a natural spectacle that awakens the spirit of discovery! The best way to explore this area is walking on picturesque hiking trails, cycling on flowing MTB routes or climbing spectacular via ferratas.
Any more questions? In the Visitor Centre in S. Vigilio you can get interesting information about the geology and the archaeology of the Nature Park.
