LEISURE PLEASURE - Holidays a Funes/ Dolomites

The valley of Villnöß offers a lot of distraction.  Get to know the country and its people, enjoy the untouched nature when hiking beneath the mountains.  In the various alpine huts, you can try local dishes and taste self-made cheese.

Our hiking area lies in the midst of the Puez Geisler Nature Park, part to the UNESCO world natural heritage.  Unforgettable experiences are guaranteed!  You should not miss the Nature Park House.

For climbers, there are not only protected climbing routes, but also a challenging ropes course in the valley.  In the sport park of St. Peter, you will find a skittle alley and a shooting range.  Coll offers a horse riding stable.  The indoor adventure pool “Acquarena” in Brixen and the open-air pool in Klausen are perfect for swimming fun.

 

Special highlights

Ancient customs and traditions, arts and culture — all this belong to a holiday on the farm.  Look at ceremonious processions, visit one of the many concerts of the local band, discover the world of stones and gems in the mineral museum of Teis, marvel at the transformation of sheep’s wool into high quality products at the “Naturwoll” manufacture, take part in our summer festivals, Tyrol Evenings, and bringing down the cattle (which is some kind of ritual). A year’s highlight is the „Villnöß Speckfest“ (“speck” is the local word for smoked bacon) in October.  And if you are here at the right time, take part in our big fire at the Heart Jesus Feast.

In the small towns of South Tyrol, you can unhurriedly stroll and shop.  By car, you will reach the towns of Klausen, Brixen, Bozen, Meran, Bruneck or Sterzing in just one hour. Many points of interest wait for you: museums, churches, palaces and castles …
