Winter fun 
Active winter sports fans will mostly appreciate Gsieser Tal valley because of its 40 kilometres of cross-country ski pistes that cater for all requirements and are a sight for sore eyes. Family-friendly ski lifts, such as St. Magdalena lift, make a Farm Holiday in Gsieser Tal a pleasant mix of relaxation and movement. But even if you are without cross-country ski equipment, you don't have to stay indoors by the fire, but can choose between walks, ski tours or snow shoe walks starting right from your holiday flat or room. In winter, this sleepy valley livens up for a few days each year: the popular 'Gsieser Tal Lauf' skiing marathon, which has not once been cancelled because of lack of snow, has taken place here since 1984. The race attracts thousands of spectators and sportspeople to the parish and is one of the most popular races in the Alpine area. Over 30 countries take part each year. For those wishing to ring the changes, the neighbouring winter sports eldorado, Antholzer Tal valley, as well as Olang lower terminal cable car station for Kronplatz ski slopes, are just a short drive away.

You can walk from pasture to pasture and try some of all the rural delicacies. On a Farm Holiday in Gsieser Tal, you're practically obliged to enjoy the good food.

No Easter without an ox

Over 200 years ago, gourmets enthused about the tender flesh of Gsieser Tal oxen. It is said that even the Emperor was served it at Easter in the Vienna Court. 

Over 200 years ago, gourmets enthused about the tender flesh of Gsieser Tal oxen. It is said that even the Emperor was served it at Easter in the Vienna Court. 

Its good quality was thanks to the fattening process. Farmers drove their cattle to market at Easter through Gsieser Tal valley until St. Lorenzen in Pustertal valley to sell it there. There, big arguments often broke out between the butchers as to who would get the best ox. The auctioned animal was then adorned festively and led through the alleyways. After the Second World War, this tradition fell into obscurity, until it was picked up on again in the past twenty years. Today, up to 700 kilogrammes of heavy oxen are auctioned in St. Lorenzen each year and prepared at Easter in the kitchens of the inns and restaurants in accordance with age-old recipes.
