Experience

At the AVIUNSHOF you can experience the magical power of the mountains, the inexhaustible change of the seasons and mountain farming in the biological cycle all year round.
 
Through the deep connection with nature, man comes closer to himself again. Far away from mass tourism, you can live your own personal freedom in the Mazia Valley, protected and safe in the almost limitless natural and mountain world of the Obervinschgau.

At any time of the year you can spend relaxing and active time on our farm and the beautiful landscape. Our house is located directly on the Vinschgauer Höhenweg, the ideal starting point for hikes, mountain bike tours, summit tours, snowshoe hikes, tobogganing and much more. Just a few kilometres from our farm is the Venustarc archery course. In the surrounding area there are numerous family-friendly ski resorts.

The Churburg
 
One of the best preserved castles in South Tyrol is the Churburg near Schluderns. Built in the 13th century, the medieval complex was converted into a magnificent Renaissance residence. The world's largest private armoury of the castle contains almost complete equipment for a complete castle crew.
Below the Churburg, the "South Tyrolean Knights' Games" are held every year in August.
To the Churburg you can hike directly from the farm via the Vinschgauer Höhenweg. Ideally also to connect with the circular hiking trail Berg- und Leitenwaal.

Oberetteshütte and Mazia Alm

 

 
The Oberetteshütte at 2,670 hm stands in the middle of the unique Landscape of the Mazia Mountains.
The hut is the only hiking destination to enjoy excellent traditional Vinschger hut dishes or an ideal starting point for tours to the White Ball on 3,739 hm or to the Saldurseen (the highest lake group in South Tyrol). The newly built Matscher Kuhalm is a real insider tip and probably one of the most beautiful alpine pastures in the Vinschgau. Idyllically located in the middle of an enchanting mountain panorama, pleasant to reach on a wide forest path or via a small path and managed all year round. 

Saldur Lakes
 
The Saldur Lakes (Saldurseen) are the highest lake plateau in South Tyrol. High above the valley of Mazia at about 3,000 meters above sea level are seven lakes, framed by a magnificent mountain scenery. A natural jewel of unique beauty with Tibetan flair. An impressive high mountain tour for experienced hikers.
Ascent starting from the valley over the Oberettes hut Saldurseen/Bildstöckljoch.
Distance: approx. 15 km, altitude: approx. 1,300, walking time: approx. 7 hours


At the AVIUNSHOF, active agriculture can still be experienced within reach. Our organic farm includes about 25 brown cattle cows and 20 young cattle.
 
Our dairy cows are milked twice a day. If you like, you are welcome to come to the barn at the milking times and accompany us at work or watch the milking.
 
In the summer months we bring in the hay for our animals.
In the steep mountain meadows this is a laborious and strenuous work, but the excellent hay quality with many fresh herbs is tasted in our delicious organic hay milk.
