Your holidays in Kastelruth
Lace up your hiking boots and use the Kienzlhof as an ideal starting point for interesting hikes. Our farm is located not far from the nature park Schlern-Rosengarten. The offer for families is also very interesting: the area around the Schlern has always been known for its witch stories. Therefore, a hike to the Witch’s Chairs above Kastelruth is recommended, an erratic boulder in the forest whose unique shape has captured the imagination of many generations. It is a hiking destination ideal for families with older children to tell stories about witches while hiking to the destination. The Barefoot and Adventure Trail “Hexenquelle” on the Seiser Alm has the same theme. Along the way you can admire sulfur springs and beautiful wooden figures.
Holidays in Kastelruth
Swimming and bathing in the summer
If you want to cool off after a beautiful hike, why not take a dip in the refreshing water – for example in the outdoor swimming pool “Telfen” in Kastelruth. The pool is a popular meeting place in the area and awaits all guests with a bar and a separate children’s pool. Another attraction for young and old water lovers is the alpine lake Völser Weiher in the nearby village of Völs am Schlern. There you can not only swim, but also rent a boat and row across the lake.
Middle Ages and present
A further interesting family hike is the Oswald-von-Wolkenstein path, that starts in Seis am Schlern. 15 stations to know everything about the life in the Middle Ages. The path will bring you also to the ruins of Salegg and Hauenstein. Another beautiful family hike is for sure the one that brings you to the Marinzen Alm. A chairlift will bring you directly from Kastelruth to the arrival, where a petting zoo and an adventure playground are waiting for all children. There is also a pond where you are allowed to fish, you can rent all the equipment directly there!
