A winter holiday on the farm is a special experience.
We may learn from nature. Also nature has to take a period of rest in order to prepare herself for the new season and to get new energy.

When Mother Holle is shaking the quilts with feathers and the winter spreads its white coat over the countryside, also on the farm a silent and calm time begins. Nature is taking a winter sleep in order to get new energy for the following year. Also for a human being it is good to pause, to outpace the duties and cares of everyday life and to find the own rhythm.

The following video shows you a representative selection of several 'Red Rooster' farms in South Tyrol and gives an insight into rural life and the variety which are a feature of the over 1,700 member farms. The cornerstones of the 'Red Rooster' brand are the following: Farm Holidays, Farm Inns and Bars, Quality Products from the Farm, as well as Farm Arts and Crafts.

A sunny winter trip in untouched nature, a snowball fight with children, an evening walk under the sky starlit, long winter evenings with your family- reading a book in the cuddly reading corner or playing funny board games will revive your feelings.
Grant yourself and your family this period of rest, you surely won’t regret it!

Snowfun for kids and grown-ups

During the sledge ride on the snow-covered hill, while playing in the snow with our dog Nico or during a good snowball fight you can just enjoy and relax.

Guided snowshoeing tour to the "Thalhofer Alm"

In the winter months the farmer Florian organises a snowshoeing tour to the "Thalhofer Alm" with our guests. The wonderful, snow-covered landscape, the calm of the mountains during the winter and the magnificent view to the Dolomites are the reward for the exhausting climb to the summit. If you don’t have any snowshoes with you, you can borrow them from us.

Snowshoe hike and ski touring

As the first snowflakes cover the landscape, the winter sportsmen are itching to start: the sledders, tour hikers and snowshoe hikers are preparing themselves for the winter.
They appreciate the extensive, wonderful "Latzfonser" mountain pastures and are looking forward to the view to the Dolomites.
Various mountain chalets like the "Stöfflhütte" and "Klausner Hütte" are ideal to take a rest and take a bite.


Sledding enthusiastics people get their money’ s worth at the "Lahnwiese"- railway. The family great bobsleigh track is great fun for the whole family. Your personal comfort is taken care of in the "Steineben-Treff" nearby. Also on the "Jochalm" you can reach your car by sledge.

South Tyrol’s Christmas markets – a special winter experience

South Tyrol’s Christmas markets are among the oldest and biggest markets in Italy. Whether you visit the popular markets in "Bozen", "Meran", "Brixen", "Bruneck" or "Sterzing" or the small, really special markets in "Klausen", "Sarntal" or "Kastelruth", our house is a perfect starting point for a fabulous Christmas market tour.
You will be centrally located and if you don’t want to venture into overcrowded city centres by car, you can comfortably reach the Christmas markets in the different towns by bus or by train. With our guest card you can use the public transport free of charge.

Medieval Christmas in "Klausen"

Night guards stroll through the streets and tell stories, from the alleys you hear medieval music. A juggler is scurrying through the crowd and on the main square a fire-breather is showing his tricks. The merchant is standing in front of his shop wearing a tunic, while you hear kids laughs. Innumerable trees line the streets and the natural light gives a particular atmosphere to the city.
Klausen invites you to enjoy its special atmosphere during the Advent time, to have a period without hurry and pressure and to experience the medieval Christmas in Klausen.
