The enchanting world of herbs
Health is very important to us. This is why we are interested in the healing properties of the herbs. Our use of fresh herbs from our gardens or from nature has the positive side effect of giving our dishes and meals a very special taste - our creative herbal cuisine with “heart & flair".
During the weekly herb hikes from spring to autumn, our guests can get to know the herbs in the "Pharmacy of God" of our mountains. From herbal salt and herbal pestos to a wide variety of "root preparations". Unforgettable moments with our "Kräutersepp"!
Cycling and MTB in the Passeier Valley
Cycling in the Passeier Valley is fun for the whole family. There is something for everyone, whether it’s moderate cycle paths, taking the cycle path to St. Leonhard or the spa town of Merano. Racing cyclists can tackle the challenging Timmelsjoch and Jaufenpass Alpine passes, while mountain bikers can explore the valley along a variety of forest paths or single trails above the tree line. The new Hinterbrugg bike trail in St. Leonhard is one of the MTB highlights.
Bike-Guide: Our certified guide Stricker Willy accompanies cyclists to the most beautiful alpine pastures and can offer his services and riding technique tips to beginners.
Pure riding pleasure for motorcyclists.
Winding mountain passes and a breath-taking panorama – in South Tyrol you will find the ideal conditions for your motorcycle tours. A paradise for bikers.
The Passeier Valley is the ideal starting point for exciting motorcycle tours in South Tyrol: mountain roads, countless passes and hairpin bends, here motorcyclists are in full swing.
From St. Leonhard, there are many bends on the 2,094 metre Jaufen Pass. The Jaufen Pass is the shortest and also the most winding connection between Merano and Sterzing. A detour to Sterzing is certainly worthwhile.
One of the dream tours of the Alps. The Timmelsjoch requires a good working knowledge from the school of pass driving. The Timmelsjoch can be reached from South Tyrol in the Austrian Ötztal. The Timmelsjoch high alpine road was built in 1955 and is very popular with bikers. It is open from about mid-June to mid-October from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Penserjoch connects the Sarntal with the Wipptal. Together with the Jaufenpass tour, a nice round trip can be taken. The Penserjoch is open from May to November.
