Places steeped in history  
Sterzing used to a major trading town in the Middle Ages, helped by its special position between Jaufen Pass, Brenner Pass and Penserjoch Pass. The region found wealth when the mountains in Wipptal valley started to be mined in around 1400. This decisive period of history is a constant presence for those staying at a holiday flat or room in Sterzing and environs. Insights into the tradition of mountain mining may be had at Ridnaun Schneeberg mining museum or on a visit to St. Barbara miners' chapel in Gossensaß.The most well known visitor to the village of Gossensaß in the Brenner municipality was Henrik Ibsen. The famous writer even has a museum dedicated to him.


The art of haymaking  
Views of the surrounding mountains and the 3,500-metre-high Hochfeiler, the highest mountain of the Eisacktal valley, in the Zillertal Alps accompany those on a Farm Holiday in Sterzing and environs. Gazing across the mountains, forests and meadows, curious piles of hay may be seen in some places. They are strange to behold. If hay cannot be dried after being cut, it is traditionally heaped up by hand into what look like little man-shaped formations. On a Farm Holiday in Sterzing and environs, there's a good chance that you'll catch sight of this largely forgotten method of farmwork.


Tasty treats in a mountain village
