But wait… that’s not all!

10 things you can do during your holiday in Alpenrose:

  • While the mill wheel is running in the background, in the mill shop in Pflaurenz you can buy plastic-free dry fruits, cereals and other goodies from large sacks. Ideal stop on the way home
  • The Niederkofler family from Bergila knows how to translate the power of herbs into wonderful organic products. The show shop in Issing with a herbal garden is well worth a visit (and afterwards you can enjoy a coffee overlooking the lake)
  • Speaking of the lake: with Lake Braies (30 minutes from Montal), the Puster Valley may rightfully lay claim to the most beautiful alpine lake. Because not only Terence Hill, who has filmed here for the Italian television series “Un passo dal cielo”, likes to advise you when the ideal time to get to this natural jewel is
  • They are the symbol of the Dolomites par excellence: the Drei Zinnen (‘Three Peaks’) in the nature park of the same name. Especially beautiful: the circuit around the mountain range (allow for about 4 hours)
  • Friday is market day: before the weekend, the farmers on Graben Street in Bruneck offer their high-quality products. Be sure to try a traditional tirtl
  • Nativity scenes are just for the Christmas season? In Europe’s largest nativity scene exhibition in Luttach, see for yourself that isn’t true. Maranatha is the name of the nativity scene museum of the Gartner family, a lovingly compiled collection down to the last detail
  • If you walk through the town street of Bruneck, you should definitely stop by Horvath: the various drawers filled with nuts and dried fruits are by themselves worth a visit to the charming corner shop
  • The finest milk products are available at the Gatscher farm cheese dairy in Kiens, where you can taste all the products before you buy them.
  • In the footsteps of the Romans: at the Mansio Sebatum Museum in St Lorenzen, a bygone era comes to life. After the visit, we recommend a walk to the Sonnenburg, a former convent in which today a hotel is housed
  • These two places are particularly suitable for little explorers: in the mine in Prettau even the little ones can enter the old mine with the mine train and hear stories about the miners’ work. And there are around 700 examples from around the world at the Helmholtz Museum in Gais
