South Tyrol is a paradise for hiking, biking, and skiing right in the middle of the Alps. The Oberfallerhof is a great starting point for hiking trails of different levels: from relaxing all-year walks to easy hikes and demanding summit tours for experienced hikers. Likewise, you can find nearby ski areas for every taste and competence: family ski trips to the Rittner Horn or the Alpe di Siusi. For the more experienced skiers, the world-famous Sellaronda ski safari as well as Val Gardena in the heart of the Dolomites are just a car ride away. In spring, summer, autumn and winter take hikes directly from the Oberfallerhof and reach famous destinations like Dreikirchen, the Barbian waterfalls and church St. Verena. Building up your fitness by visiting the Barbian and Villanders Alm as well as the Renon, you’ll sure make it to the Villnößer Geislerspitzen or the Schlern during your holiday!
The bishop’s town of Brixen, the artists' town of Klausen, the provincial capital of Bozen and the spa town of Meran are all easily reachable by public transport. Go for a shopping stroll for traditional South Tyrolean products or Italian chic and enjoy cultural highlights like contemporary museums and the Ötzi, impressive churches, castles, and monasteries. Countless events, festivals, and exhibitions happen all year round. Immerse yourself in the South Tyrolean way of living!
South Tyrolean cuisine has a lot to offer. Award-winning restaurants, rustic alpine huts, down-to-earth wine taverns, cozy pizzerias: Italian mediterrean cusine meets alpine culinary art. If you don’t feel like cooking your own meals in the apartment, the Saubacher Hof is just a 500m walk away. The restaurants and pizzerias in both Barbian and Kollmann are around 2.5km away. The “Klostersepp” in Klausen, the “Steinbock” in Villanders, the „Zuner“ and „Schwaiger“ in Ritten are all just a short car or taxi ride away and offer a great variety of local cuisine.
The Isarco Valley is a known region for white wine. While our own wine is not ready yet, since we just planted the vines in 2022 private wineyards in the area are looking forward to your visit. The Eisacktal winery cooperative in Klausen offers guided tours including tastings.
