Our central location allows you to make numerous excursions in our beautiful region South Tyrol in just a short drive. The high mountains are a fascinating natural spectacle, and the idyllic alpine pastures invite you to hike and relax. But you should also visit our beautiful towns like Brixen or Meran with Trauttmannsdorff Castle or Bolzano and its Ötzi Museum!
You will get to know the South Tyrolean stories through high peaks, via ferratas, high-altitude trails, nature parks, alpine pastures, lake tours or bike tours – and you will feel peace, relaxation, and recreation. (Hiking maps are available from us free of charge).
Sports enthusiasts will find a wide range of activities: swimming, sauna, wellness, and fitness in the “Acquarena” adventure pool (BrixenCard). The most active guests can enjoy paragliding, rafting, rock climbing and much more in the closest proximity.
Lake Varna is also a popular excursion destination and a valuable local recreation area. A hike to the Lake Varna should definitely be on your program during your holiday.
A unique experience for body and soul are the Kneipp facilities in Rio di Scaleres. The barefoot path, the new large children’s playground, the tents and the large sunbathing lawn are not far from our farm.
A few minutes separate you from a breathtaking panoramic view of the glaciers of the Zillertal Alps, from the unique Dolomites to the highest mountain, the Ortler, and some culturally charming excursion destinations such as the Sabiona monastery, the Fortress in Fortezza and the Novacella Abbey.
If you are here to chill, you can simply lie in the sun and relax while the children play in our playground. But if you prefer to read a good book in the open air or simply sit together, the benches and tables in front of our farm are the ideal place. The best way to end a wonderful day is with a barbecue (barbecue equipment available).
For relaxation and rest you can also use the sauna area at the nearby hotel (extra charge). You will also find their well-known speciality restaurant there.

Autumn holidays in South Tyrol
Our farm is located directly on the famous Chestnut Trail and is therefore an ideal starting point for hikes from Varna to Renon through the chestnut groves. In autumn numerous Törggelen taverns offer their gastronomy.
Törggelen originates from the old custom of farmers and wine merchants to taste young wine in autumn, between the beginning of October and the beginning of Advent. In the “Buschenschenken” (taverns) of South Tyrol, this “new wine” is served with meat, sausages, cabbage, and dumplings. Sweet krapfen and roasted chestnuts are a worthy finale to this typical meal.
Autumn – harvest time
The arrival of autumn, which runs from September to November, is heralded by an explosion of colours, scents and aromas. From the end of September onwards, the forests appear in all shades of red, yellow and orange… The hot summer days are increasingly turning into pleasantly mild and crystal-clear autumn days. Day after day, the apples on the branches and the grapes on the vines become more and more colourful and a plentiful harvest is announced. A sweet and refreshing smell wafts through the air, in the sky huge flocks of birds migrate southwards – a great spectacle of nature!
The farmers reap the fruits of their hard work. You are welcome to take part – enjoy our magnificent natural landscape.
