Farm Holidays in Prad am Stilfserjoch

On a Farm Holiday in Prad am Stilfserjoch, you'll discover unspoilt nature, villages buzzing with life and authentic tradition.

The name of Prad am Stilfserjoch can be a little misleading at first, but don't worry, you won't be spending your Farm Holiday on the second-highest pass in the Alps at 2,757 metres above sea level, but at the start of the road to the pass at around 880 metres in altitude. Prad am Stilfserjoch lies in the upper Vinschgau valley and a large part of it is in Stilfserjoch National Park. Suldenbach stream, which leads to the Etsch a little further north, flows through the village. The villages of Agums and Lichtenberg belong to the municipality, with the latter being well known for its castle ruins, which are visible from far off.

A carnival parade processes through the village on 'Unsinnigen Donnerstag' having roots in pre-Christian fertility rituals and said to 'wake up' the corn to bring a good harvest. The 'Zussln' characters hang cow bells around their necks and try to drag visitors off into the nearest inn to foot the bill. Anyone refusing to do so is challenged to a race and, if they lose, they still have to go to the inn and treat the rascally 'Zussl' to a meal.
