Farm Holidays in St. Leonhard in Passeier

When on a Farm Holiday in St. Leonhard in Passeier, you can visit the birthplace of the freedom fighter Andreas Hofer as well as go on a variety of walks.

St. Leonhard in Passeier lies in the wide valley basin at the foot of the Jaufen mountain in deepest Passeiertal valley – where the Passer river and the Waltner Bach stream flow together. Farmhouses and the parish church of St. Leonhard make up the village centre.
In summer, the village may be reached by the Timmelsjoch pass via Austria and via the Jaufenpass from Sterzing. Surrounded by the Stubai, Ötztal and Sarntal Alps, a network of hiking paths criss-crosses the area between St. Leonhard at 693 metres above sea level and the approximately 500-metres-higher Walten, as well as the bordering Texelgruppe Nature Park.

The 'Schildhöfe' farmsteads
Staying at a holiday flat or room in St. Leonhard in Passeier, you can get to know the rural traditions and customs of St. Leonhard in Passeier. The locals still wear their traditional costume on special occasions and the annual 'Almabtrieb', when the cows are led down from the mountain pastures, is all part of the age-old rural culture there.
Most farmhouses here are very low and made of wood. A few fortress-like buildings inlaid with ivory and decorated with old sundials on their walls stand out amongst them. These 'Schildhöfe' are unique all over South Tyrol. They used to belong to farmers who had won special privileges thanks to their military service in the Middle Ages. One of the eleven farms is in the district of Gomion in St. Leonhard, opposite the single-nave Maria Lourdes church from 1891. A trip to the 'Schildhöfe' should not be missed out on when on a Farm Holiday in St. Leonhard in Passeier.


The birthplace of Andreas Hofer
Another interesting farm may be found in St. Leonhard - a farm that plays an important role in the history of Tyrol. Sandhof farm was the home and birthplace of Andreas Hofer, a farmer and cattle dealer who three times led the Tyroleans to battle against Napoleon's troups in the Tyrolean popular uprising of 1809. Horses used to be changed at the Sandwirt when transporting goods over the border. Nowadays, the farm is a rustic inn and seat of the Passeier Museum, which affords interesting insights into life in days gone by and also sheds light on Hofer's life from different points of view. The two 'Kapellen am Sand' chapels at Sandhof are also worth a visit.

There are lots of hiking paths to choose from all over Passeiertal valley. A hike to Pflandler Alm pasture comes highly recommended. This is where Andreas Hofer stayed hidden with his family for one and a half months before being captured.

Sporting activity may be combined with culture on a walk to Pfistrad Alm pasture. A building containing items and machines telling of daily life in the Middle Ages and what working mountain pastures used to be like may be freely accessed here during the summer.
The E5 European Long Distance Path and the Meran High Path running through the village are popular hiking paths. As well as there being holiday flats and room in St. Leonhard in Passier, Farm Holidays may be spent in Walten, Schweinsteg, Prantach, Gomion, Glaiten and Schlattach as well as Mörre.


Hiking destination St. Hippolyt
The late Romanesque chapel of St. Hippolyt may be found in the hamlet of Glaiten at an altitude of 1,000 metres. The precious 14th-century frescoes inside the chapel may no longer be viewed, unfortunately, but the chapel still makes a popular destination: views from here don't just open out across St. Leonhard, but over the whole of the Passeiertal valley up to Meran.
