It is possible to stay in a holiday flat or room in Jenesien in the district of Afing – a village removed from any hustle and bustle. There are holiday flats or room in the pilgrimage site of Glaning, as well as in Flaas, where lots of hiking paths cross and Fahrer Weiher biotope is not far away.
Jenesine is idea for a holiday spent relaxing and hiking, yet the urban centre of Bozen may be reached in a few minutes' cable car ride for a leisurely day's shopping in the old town or just to take in some culture.

Mountain location with history
Until the 1980s, Jenesien was quite a remote mountain village only accessed by a narrow road and a simple cable car. Most of the population had always made a living from farming, but nowadays, fruit, wine, vegetable cultivation and dairy farming is increasingly important. Lots of farmers deliver milk from their cows to Mila dairy in Bozen, the largest dairy cooperative in South Tyrol.  
A Farm Holiday in Jenesien is a varied one. You can have an interesting look at the rural culture and a comparison between the lives of the wine farmers at lower altitudes and those of the mountain farmers up on the Tschögglberg plateau. On some farms, visitors are welcome to watch bread being baked on bread-baking days and may try their hand at kneading the dough in the old wooden vats themselves.
A few farms in Jenesien are especially worth seeing. The hamlet of Kampidell was built around the small St. Mary's church and was first mentioned in records in 1180. It is made up of Stegerhof, Herrenhaus, Prälatenhaus and the current summer residence of the Benedictine monks of Muri Gries monastery in Bozen. The four Goldegghöfe farms feature remnants of walls of an old building where the Lords of Goldegg, who were responsible for keeping the paths to nearby Sarntal valley in good order, used to live. These days, their crest forms the coat of arms of the municipality of Jenesien.
There is a carefully-restored grain mill at Lanznaster farm, which may be visited on request. The farmer still uses the mill himself to make flour from his own grain.


On the tracks of the earth pyramids
Holidays in Jenesien will also cater for nature lovers. The E5 European long distance path runs through the village and St. Martin's path in Glaning – a circular walk with various stations. There are two hiking paths going to the ruins of Greifenstein or Helfenberg. There are hiking paths of easy to moderate difficulty through extensive meadows and larch forest which turns bright red in autumn on Salten sunny high plateau. Salten is also good for mountain bike tours, Nordic walking tours or excursions on placid, blonde Haflinger ponies. Lot of farms offering Farm Holidays in Jenesien organise pony trekking. There is a cross-country piste going across Salten in winter and the countryside turns into a paradise for snow shoe walkers.

A special natural spectacle may be seen round three kilometres northwest of Nobls, the smallest district of Jenesien. There are earth pyramids here worth seeing, too, but not as many as on the Ritten plateau. As long as their stone 'hat' protects them, they rise up out of their loamy grooves before being worn away by the elements. St. Valentin's Chapel in Nobls is also worth a trip.

The inhabitants of Jenesien like to party. All summer long there are cultural events, entertaining summer festivals and culinary weeks. 

The 'Schupfenfest', a festival serving food in hay barns, taking place every third Sunday in September on the Salten plateau, is very popular. In autumn, at 'Törggelen' time, the area turns into a paradise for all those who love eating chestnuts. Lots of farm inns serve up old farm specialities and roasted chestnuts in old perforated pans accompanied by new wine.
