Attractions

What you simply mustn’t miss

There’s so much to experience and explore in and around Meransen – panoramic viewing platforms, historical sites, an Alpine pool … the list goes on. Keep reading and discover more about your leisure options at Huberhof.

Panoramic platform on Monte Cuzzo/Gitschberg

Mountains as far as the eye can see … That’s exactly what awaits you on the panoramic platform on Monte Cuzzo/Gitschberg at 2,510 metres above sea level, which is near the mountain station of the Monte Cuzzo/Gitschberg cable car. Enjoy a 360° view of 500 Dolomite peaks as well as the Zillertal, Stubai, and Ötztal Alps.

The church in Meransen

The parish church in Meransen is dedicated to St Jacob and the three Holy Virgins. It’s a Baroque building from 1775 with a late-Gothic church tower, which was built as early as 1472. In 1520, the church had a new winged altar added, from which the late-Gothic figures of the three Virgins still stand on the side altar today.

Malga Fane/Fane Alm

The most rustic Alpine village in South Tyrol awaits you at 1,739 metres above sea level at the end of Val di Valles/Valler Tal. After an hour’s walk, which is suitable for pushchairs and starts at the large car park, you’ll reach the Alpine village with some 30 wooden huts and a chapel. Here, you’ll experience the daily life of mountain farmers, ancient traditions, and the beauty of an untouched Alpine landscape. You can easily reach Malga Fane/Fane Alm in both summer and winter.

Rodenegg castle

Rodenegg castle perches majestically on a rocky outcropping over Rienz gorge – and the view of the mighty complex on the narrow rock face is truly awe-inspiring. The castle was built in the 12th century and has been rebuilt many times since. Immerse yourself and your little ones in the world of knights and fair maidens, admire the centuries-old frescoes, and listen to the tale of the “Lauterfresser” witch.

Mountain farms in Pfunders

Pfunders in Vintl is around half an hour’s drive away from Huberhof. Along the Pfunders farm trail, you’ll discover old and modern farms, artisan tradition, and an original lifestyle. You’ll experience the natural beauty of our area combined with precious traditions here.

“Breathing” bunker in Spinges

Spinges has more bunkers than any other South Tyrolean village. You can look forward to a special experience for all ages in the Spinges bunker recreational area in the woods, which offers a fantastic view towards Brixen and lots of play and climbing equipment for children. One of the bunkers is open to visitors. You can easily reach the recreational area by car.

The earth pyramids in Terenten

The perfect destination for a family day trip: The earth pyramids in Terenten and Platten. Admire the impressive rock formations that were formed during a heavy storm in 1834. During the storm, huge masses of rubble were washed down Rio Terento/Terner Bach. Over the years, rain and snow have sculpted the pyramid-shaped columns.
