Holidays on a farm in the Eisacktal valley

In Ridnauntal valley, the Mine Museum provides insight into the centuries-old mining tradition on Schneeberg mountain. In Pfitschertal and in Pflerscher Tal valleys, mountain idyll meets deserted landscapes, and, in Pfunderer Tal valley, old customs and long-forgotten professions are still maintained today. Around the medieval bishop's town of Brixen, the Eisacktal opens up onto a wide valley floor, with chestnut groves, vines and orchards making up the landscape. A holiday in an apartment or room in Eisacktal valley takes visitors on a voyage to the original South Tyrol with its colourful facets and carefully cultivated farming traditions.

 

A taster

Hardly anything represents South Tyrolean traditions better than Törggelen, which has its origins in the wine taverns of Eisacktal valley. 'Buschenschänke' are wine farms with a traditional bar for guests. Many of them are on the Eisacktaler Keschtnweg path, which leads through the villages on the valley slope from Vahrn to Bolzano. The farmers press their own wine here and celebrate the old custom of Törggelen in autumn with roasted chestnuts and South Tyrolean specialties. The culinary specialties of the region can be sampled on many occasions during a farm holiday in Eisacktal valley. Whether it's the bread and strudel market in Brixen, the South Tyrolean Knödel festival in Sterzing or the plum weeks in Barbian, Eisacktal valley cuisine always gives palates cause for celebration.

 

History and culture everywhere

The route over the Brenner Pass has always been an important traffic route, and an illustrious collection of emperors and kings, pilgrims, poets and artists, once travelled the Eisacktal valley on this path. The Ibsen Museum in Gossensaß refers to the most famous guest in the community - the writer Henrik Ibsen. Today, however, Eisacktal valley is anything but just a transit area, and you'll find yourself wanting to linger awhile there, with its comfortable holiday apartments and rooms. A holiday in Eisacktal valley shows that the mining history has also left its mark. The town of Sterzing, built up by the Fugger dynasty, achieved great prosperity thanks to the productive silver mines in the surrounding valleys. This can still be seen reflected today in stately buildings such as Sterzing town hall. The magnificent past of a former episcopal city can also be felt in Brixen - the oldest town in Tyrol - with the medieval old town and Brixen Cathedral bearing witness to this time. The Benedictine monastery of Säben can be seen from afar and towers above the small town of Klausen in lower Eisacktal valley. The eventful past is evident in the large number of castles and palaces that are scattered across the entire Eisacktal valley. Reifenstein Castle near Sterzing, Hofburg palace in Brixen, Franzensfeste fortress or Rodenegg Castle - they all have their own story to tell to guests on a farm holiday in Eisacktal valley.

 

Summer and winter highlights

In summer, rustic Fanealm pasture village or extensive Rodenecker Alm pasture in the Eisacktal valley attract holidaymakers on hikes. Extensive mountain tours in the Ridnaun valley, in Pfitsch, Pflersch and Pfunders take you to dizzying heights. Here there are rocky giants that rise more than 3,000 metres into the sky. In winter, the ski areas of Plose, Rosskopf, Gitschberg-Jochtal, Ladurns and Ratschings-Jaufen are crowd pullers. Their action-packed slopes are never far away from holiday apartments and rooms in Eisacktal valley. The Villanderer Alm pasture lures you to go on idyllic snow shoe hikes and fun sledging excursions.
