Feldthurns

 
A Sunny Outlook for a Fantastic Vacation

The sunny, southerly mid-altitude location with its majestic chestnut trees and the wonderful view of the mighty Geisler was reason enough for the bishops of Brixen/Bressanone to establish their summer residence here in 1577. In the immediate vicinity of the Velthurns Castle, you’ll find a picturesque and easily-reached village which – together with its subdivisions of Schrambach / San Pietro Mezzomonte, Schnauders/Snodres, Tschiffnon/Giovignano, Garn/Caerna, and Untrum – offers many an astonishingly interesting pleasurable experience, including boundless hiking trails, “Törggelen” at numerous rustic inns along the way, or an outdoor swimming pool right in the middle of this magnificent mid-altitude landscape.
