Summer in South Tyrol’s mountains

If you spend one summer in South Tyrol’s mountains you’ll want to come back again and again. The pleasant climate, the smell of hay and herbs, the neat mountain pastures, the proud mountains, the numerous colourful celebrations… you’ll never want to miss that again!

Hiking fans love our area. They can start on their tours directly from our farm or comfortably reach further ones by car.

This is a short abstract of what you can do during your summer holiday:

Mining world in Ridnaun Schneeberg

Hiking tours in the mountains

Besides, you can reach a lot of mountain pastures, starting from our place. One of these is the Aglsalm, which partly belongs to our family.

Here you can experience alpine life: you can taste homemade “Graukäse” (a kind of cheese), butter and a fresh cow milk.

St. Laurentius Chapel  – have a rest and find peace

Kapelle St. Laurentius Another place of interest is the St. Laurentius Chapel, which is situated at only 5 minutes walk from Veiterhof.

This chapel was named for the first time already in 1390.

At the end of the “Burkhartklamm” you can stop by at the Aglsbodenalm.
