Living customs are widespread throughout South Tyrol, not only among the older generations. We live our history and culture, so that time-honoured traditions are also preserved for the next generations. We would like to invite you to join us at our celebrations and festivals to get a taste of our culture. And also the museums not far from your holiday flat in Val Pusteria are definitely worth a detour…
With its so-called climate gallery, the copper mine in Prettau is not only a popular excursion destination for the whole family, but also a popular health resort for allergy sufferers and people with breathing problems.
The 3 “M “s in South Tyrol are now known beyond the country’s borders and stand for the mountain museums of the famous extreme mountaineer Reinhold Messner, such as the one at Kronplatz, one of the last works of art by the famous architect Zaha Hadid.
Strictly speaking, the Tauferer Ahrntal consists of two valleys. Right between the Tauferer Tal and the Ahrntal there is the imposing Taufers Castle complex, the setting for the filming of the children’s film series “Burg Schreckenstein” and the model for Polanski’s “Dance of the Vampires”. A visit is possible with or without a guided tour.
Culinary highlights, shopping and traditional festivals and celebrations characterise the Pustertal and especially the Tauferer Ahrntal. Music fans listen to the evening concerts of the local music band. Customs are very important here – not only for the elderly!
Every Tuesday in summer, local specialities are served up in the streets of Sand in Taufers and there is a lively party.
Every two years this event attracts guests from all over South Tyrol and beyond, the next time in 2022.
The little brother of the well-known Stegen market in Bruneck takes place in your holiday resort of Mühlen in Taufers – as the name suggests, on St. Catherine’s Day in November. Here people trade and haggle to their heart’s content.
In search of unique and special holiday souvenirs, shopping enthusiasts will find what they are looking for in Mühlen itself, but also in Sand in Taufers and Bruneck (only 15 minutes away from the Innermoserhof).
Experiencing local colour and unforgettable experiences is best done at the Kirchtag, which is celebrated throughout the Pustertal valley. This is also the case in Mühlen. The main attraction is the “Kirschtamichl”, a puppet on a high trunk, which is guarded by the village boys (also called “Kirschtamänner”) to prevent it from being stolen!
With a bit of luck, you will be in the right place at the right time in autumn, when the Almabtrieb celebrates the end of summer for the cows and they go back home to the barn.
Romantic lovers of the Christmas season stroll through the Christmas market in Bruneck or the Waldweihnacht in the forest at the Reinbach waterfalls!
