in spring – blossoms in Fiè
In spring the Dolomites region in the Sciliar-Catinaccio area is a blossom dream. Numerous fruit trees are on the slopes of Voelser Aicha in full bloom, while still holding onto the mountain tops, the last remnants of snow. The pastures shine in soft green and the first warming rays of the sun are ideal for hiking and cycling. In spring, the cows leave their winter quarters in South Tyrol, to spend the summer on the lush pastures in the mountains. On the largest mountain plateau in Europe the Running Park Alpe di Siusi opens its doors and attracts active vacationers and outdoor enthusiasts from all over the area. Particularly appealing is a walk on the Oachner Höfeweg who passes right along the Prackfolerhof. On the excursion you will pass small mountain chapels, old homesteads and magnificent shrines.
Enjoyment of nature
and events in spring
Spring in the Dolomites region Sciliar is dominated by the Middle Ages. Knight Festival and medieval fairs are held behind the old walls of the castle and comfort of Castle Prösels. In late spring the traditional Oswald von Wolkenstein Ride attracts visitors from all parts of the country. The largest equestrian event in South Tyrol is held every year in memory of the medieval minstrel. The South Tyrolean capital Bolzano invites you to a shopping tour in the medieval city and a trip to the spa town of Merano takes you into the flowering and fragrant world of exotic plants in the botanical gardens of Trauttmansdorff.
