From the North, drive down from Innsbruck over the Brenner Pass from the Austrian border into Italy. You will be going in the direction of Bressanone (Brixen).
Continue south (either on the regular road along the river or on the Autostrada travelling south from the Brenner Pass).
From the Autostrada (after Bressanone), exit at Klausen.
From the exit, you will travel straight up the hill along many winding roads to St. Ulrich (Ortisei). Just before St. Ulrich turn right on the road through the tunnel leading to Kastelruth, Seis, and the Seiseralm/ Alpe di Siusi.
After you reach the top at the Pass (Passo Pantei), wind down past the St. Michael church until you come to the Hotel Tianes sign on the right.
From the regular road down from Brenner, go to Ponte Gardena (Waidbruck). On the left, you will cross the new bridge, and then make a right, following up the mountain road to Castelrotto/ Kastelruth. Drive through Kastelruth to S. Michele. After Kastelruth, drive up the curving road, through fields, to St. Michele where you will see a brown sign on the left for the Hotel Tianes. Take the left down the long driveway to the hotel.
