Goldener Herbst in den Bergen

Get climbing!

Hiking & mountain climbing
The mountains of South Tyrol hold a special place in the hearts of our senior proprietors, Isabella and Günther. No matter whether you prefer leisurely walks through the Eisack Valley’s chestnut groves or are an enthusiastic mountain climber - the two of them are always available with great hiking tips and suggestions for trips. And sometimes they even like to join in when it comes to scaling the heights! No wonder - the best hiking destinations are practically outside our front door. On the alpine pastures around Feldthurns, Barbian and Villanders, for example... or in the UNESCO world natural heritage site of the Villnöss and Gardena Dolomites.

Did you know?
From May to October, Klausen tourist information association offers up to 5 guided mountain tours with certified hiking guides every week. Naturally for every level of fitness and at all altitudes.

Mountain time is our favourite time!

Winter sports

Off to the slopes!
Traditionally, in winter things are a bit quieter in our winery. The wine lies well-protected in barrels, the fruit from our orchards has long been stewed or made into brandies and the vines themselves are hibernating. Now is the time when the snowy Dolomites tempt us out of doors! Around our holiday region there is a whole host of the most popular, quickly and easily reached South Tyrolean ski resorts: Brixen’s Plose skiing mountain, the world cup slopes in Val Gardena, the famous Sellaronda, the Seiser Alp, the Gitschberg-Jochtal family ski resort and the Obereggen ski carousel. And away from the ski slopes too, active holidaymakers will find plenty to keep them busy, with activities such as cross-country skiing, winter hiking, tobogganing, ice skating, snowshoeing, horse drawn sleigh rides and curling.
