Hotel Post


Sign of the Hotel Post in Trens - Isarco Valley

As I wrote in a previous article, almost every village in South Tyrol has a Bar Post or a Hotel Post, and the signs are very similar...

I saw the title and started to look for a post holding up the hotel. But that's the name. Great sign, for sure. I like the way it trumpets it's business!

I've always liked that post horn.
I'm assuming that these hotels were located at transit hubs, rather like our railway hotels built by the railway companies?

Beautiful! I never thought about those signs before.
