An exciting winter vacation
at a farm on the Alpe di Siusi
With their lovingly furnished holiday apartments, the two farms Prackfolerhof and Schlosshof offer the perfect starting point for your winter activities in the white powder snow. Sunkissed all year round, in the winter, our holiday apartments shine in a very special light and charming winter hiking paths start right on your doorstep. The Alpe di Siusi, an excellent winter sports area, is just a stone’s throw away. Look forward to 60 kilometres of perfectly prepared ski slopes, groomed cross-country trails and toboggan runs with a total length of 17 kilometres. The Alpe di Siusi not only offers tobogganing fun for all ages and lots of fun ice-skating on the Lake of Fiè, but also wonderful opportunities to relax and find peace. Gently glide along on your cross-country skis across the natural idyll of the Alpe di Siusi and leave your busy everyday life behind. Venture out on a winter hike through dense forests over snow-covered alpine pastures up into the alpine landscapes of the Dolomites and discover the most beautiful mountain peaks of the Dolomites during winter hiking. Other highlights include moonlight tobogganing on the Alpe di Siusi and on the Tuffalm and snowshoeing in the kingdom of King Laurin. While countless legends surround the Catinaccio (“Rose Garden”), you may also simply enjoy the sunshine on your face, warm up with a cup of tea and write your own winter fairy-tale.
The winter season in the village of Fiè allo Sciliar will enchant you: the snow-covered mountain landscape below the steep wall of Mount Sciliar, the glittering snow, and the wintry peace. The environs around Fiè, the farm Prackfolerhof and the farm Schlosshof are a paradise for your winter holidays. Rent some skates and glide across the frozen Lake of Fiè or enjoy the romantic ambiance of the illuminated magic forest around Mount Sciliar during night tobogganing. It’s just as romantic on a horse-sledge ride on the Alpe di Siusi: warmly wrapped in cosy blankets, you may enjoy a ride with your partner while admiring the view of the glittering, snow-capped mountains.
You may experience unforgettable hours at the Castle Presule in Fiè allo Sciliar: in the historic castle courtyard, in the idyllic castle chapel or during an aperitif in the fireplace room. Castle Presule is definitely worth a visit!
Admire the stunning snow-covered mountain landscape under the steep walls of Mount Sciliar, the glittering snow and the wintry peace. The environs around Fiè, the farm Prackfolerhof and the farm Schlosshof are a paradise for your winter holidays.

If you prefer to spend your holidays relaxing off the slopes, you may enjoy a leisurely winter hike around Mount Sciliar during your winter vacation in the Dolomites. The soft crunch of freshly fallen snow under your snowshoes, the warmth of the sun on your face, the pristine hills: Here, you may enjoy the silence and feel a little bit closer to paradise.
The winter landscape around the Lake of Fiè also invites you to snowshoe: Enjoy the winter tranquillity, maybe even the sight of a shy chamois, and take a break in the rustic alpine huts of our region. Here, you may breathe deeply, warm up and unwind with a cup of freshly brewed tea. We recommend our guests a winter hike under the Catinaccio with a stop at the lodge Hanigerschwaige, where Doris and her brothers welcome their guests. Tasty, local dishes can be enjoyed on the lodge Messnerjoch with Matthias. Some culinary recommendations in the Fiè area: the Tuffalm with the Tuff-Sepp or the Hofer Alpl. You will also receive many insider tips.
A not-so-secret tip is the medieval Christmas market by the Lake of Carezza between the Catinaccio and Mount Latemar. The picturesque landscape, the live nativity scene and the oversized lanterns make a trip here unforgettable. Enjoy the Advent season and your Christmas holidays and stroll through the unique Christmas markets of South Tyrol: Besides the popular and rather large Christmas markets in Bolzano, Bressanone, Merano, Vipiteno and Brunico, there are many smaller markets in Fiè allo Sciliar, in Castelrotto, in the artists’ town of Chiusa or at the Corno del Renon with its special “Christkindlbandll”. They all offer unique experiences and wonderful attractions for your next winter holiday in South Tyrol.
