Albeins and Brixen are worth a visit all year round. In summer, the Eisacktal and Brixner Mittelgebirge invite you for extensive walks on the Plose, Lake Radlsee or Villnößtal. Located directly on the bike path, our holiday guests can explore the area from the Obermoarhof by bike, while Mountainbiker can really sweat during challenging tours on site. In the adventure bath “Acquarena” the water lovers get their money’s worth all year round.
Spring awakening in eisack Valley
In the morning and evening still fresh, but in the afternoon already sunny and lukewarm – so the spring days present themselves in our Eisack valley and we invite you for the first long walks. Around the Obermoarhof, nature is now coming back to life: most flowers venture to the surface and the apple meadows turn into a pink white, wonderfully fragrant sea of flowers.
As spring germinates in the valley, the mountain peaks are still covered in snow. Skiing on the Brixner Hausberg Plose will be a very special experience, where you can easily exchange your skis for a sun lounger on one of the many ski huts. Fancy a spring break in South Tyrol?
Your hiking holiday in Brixen
Farm holidays and poolside treats? No problem! In the Obermoarhof you can enjoy the water in our swimming pool or relax on the sunbathing lawn and enjoy the sun. If you look over the edge of the pool, you will also see the beauty of the Eisack Valley. Grill masters then hiss sausages, vegetables etc. on the grill provided by us in the evening.
Hiking and experiencing nature
To explore the area, all you need is backpacks, mountain shoes and love of nature during a summer holiday in South Tyrol. For the hiker, the soul of a landscape opens up in a unique way: a colorful sea of flowers spreads at its feet, rare alpine flowers catch the sun’s rays, and in the background majestic rock giants stretch their heads out to the clear sky. With the Brixner Hausberg of the Plose, the first few hundred meters of altitude can even be comfortably overcome in the gondola!
If you want to go even higher, you can enjoy mountain hikes with climbs to the top, via ferrate and glacier tours. Of course you can also cycle or paraglide. For the ventured and adventurers, a rafting trip in the Eisack Gorge or canyoning is offered.
Guests can enjoy Italian Dolce Vita while strolling through Brixen’s Old Town. Where the espresso tastes during the day, the sparkling and refreshing Aperitivi is ready in the evening.
Törggelen and autumn holidays in the Eisacktal
Even before nature around the Obermoarhof in Albeins turns into a red-orange sea of colour in autumn, the apple harvest is on its way. Now is also the right time to taste the freshly squeezed apple juice, enjoy a glass of your own new wine or discover the Törggelen in the Eisacktal.
Törggelen in the eisack Valley
Almost everyone knows the habit of törggelen by now; the origin is much less known. Probably the winegrowers in the Eisacktal moved the wine tastings that used to take place in the unfriendly cellar in the cozy Stube. With the participation of neighbors and family members, the difficult testing company certainly went easier and became a cozy get-together as the hour progressed. Today’s Törggelen was born! By the way: The name of the habit is derived from the Torggel (lat.: “torquere – press), the grape press in the wine cellar.
In Törggelen, of course, the tasting of the “sweet”, the young, not yet fermented grape juice, later in the year the “Nuien”, the already fermented must, is at the forefront. There are also delicacies: South Tyrolean bacon with primalbread, house sausages with herbs and the strong “barley soup” or the traditional tris of dumplings andSchlutzkrapfen. “Keschtn”(baked chestnuts) are served for dessert.
Walking and enjoying
Before tasting the farm dishes, a leisurely stroll through the varied and interesting cultural landscape is recommended – through vineyards, past old farms and chestnut forests. Particularly worth walking, also in stages, is the “Keschtnweg”, a hiking trail under the motto “Chestnuts”, which leads from Neustift north of Brixen to Ritten above Bolzano.
