MIRAMOR IS SYNONYMOUS WITH A WIDE RANGE OF ACTIVITIES

THE WIPPTAL VALLEY: NATURAL ENVIRONMENT IN SPRING AND AUTUMN

Not only in summer and winter a great place to spend a holiday, it is also very nice at quieter times of year. There are always special highlights to experience. In spring you can do many things that are possible in winter and in autumn you can still do the summer activities: climbing, hiking … above all, it is no longer so hot and very quiet here in the valley. During spring holidays, the alpine rose blossom is particularly beautiful. And then in autumn, winter and spring, there are the cows next to our house that wear bells. In summer they are on the alpine pasture. miramor therefore also has a bit of authentic farming culture in South Tyrol. Of course, you can also go hiking at these times of year.

HISTORY, CULTURE AND SIGHTSEEING

POOR WEATHER? STERZING TOWN AND CASTLES!

Stroll along under the colourful house facades and bay windows, do a bit of shopping, marvel at the sights and experience the embrace of Austrian cake culture and Italian coffee culture in a charming café. You will soon notice: Sterzing, this town thrives on the pulse of the Alps. There is a lot to experience here throughout the year – depending on whether it is summer and autumn or winter and spring, the activities can vary greatly from one another. But they have one thing in common: they are fun and exciting!

It was raining and you couldn't go up the mountain, but it's fine now? Then take a walk through the magnificent marble gorge of the Gilfenklamm! The hike takes about an hour.

CULTURAL HOLIDAYS IN STERZING

FORTS AND MUSEUMS IN THE WIPPTAL VALLEY

The Wipptal Valley is particularly rich in medieval forts and castles. Next to the Multscher Museum in Sterzing, which houses famous paintings by Ulm's master painter Hans Multscher, you will find the Deutschhaus Town Museum, hospice of the Teutonic Knights, where you can marvel at baroque rooms, old maps of the town and country, as well as documents, frescoes and guild shops. It was built in the 18th century and gives in-depth insights into Sterzing's culture and way of life at that time. A bit further south are three forts: Thunburg, Reifenstein and Sprechenstein. Slightly further north, Strassberg Fortress. You can hike to all of them (sturdy shoes are recommended), but you can only visit Reifenstein Fortress which dates back to the 12th century. This is considered one of the best-preserved and most valuable forts in South Tyrol in terms of art history and provides information about life in those days through frescoes, the torture chamber, the castle kitchen, the sleeping quarters of the servants and maids, the bath house and the residential keep.

LEARN ABOUT THE HISTORY OF STERZING

THE HISTORY OF MINING AND A BAROQUE CASTLE

Then there is the baroque Wolfsthurn Castle with 365 windows on a hill above the village of Mareit, former residence of the Sternbach noble family and today the Provincial Museum of Hunting and Fishing. Exhibits show the history of the Sternbach family. You also learn about the flora and fauna of the region. Not far away is a shady nature trail in the forest for children, ideal for hot days in summer and in the tranquil autumn. Don't miss the Ridnaun Mining Museum. You can choose between a short tour lasting several hours or a day tour including a visit to the mine high up on the mountain at 2,000 m above sea level and learn about the life of the miners, the different minerals and ores such as silver, lead and zinc and how the Fugger family became rich. There are also guided tours for children followed by a treasure hunt.

You can combine culture and nature and set off on the great Schneeberg tour. Here you can immerse yourself in the life of miners and mining.
