A vacation on an organic farm
Besides all the hard work that, especially for us farmers, never ends – in the warm season, the mountains shine in a midsummer glory and invite you to enjoy their cool slopes and to let your gaze wander into the striking Dolomites. The mountain slopes are ideal for long hikes to the peaks of the southern side of the Alps, as well as for short walks to the many mountain lodges and alpine huts, which welcome hikers with traditional South Tyrolean dishes. Meanwhile, many hiking trails are also easily accessible by bike – There is so much to discover in the woods for the more adventurous cyclists. Especially Mount Plose – the local mountain of Bressanone – stands at the forefront when it comes to cycling and offers many opportunities to have fun on two wheels. Mount Plose also offers ideal conditions for families and older people for relaxed yet exciting hikes with a magnificent panorama of the Dolomites. While on Mount Plose you’ll find a certain degree of infrastructures to meet a wide variety of needs, the region around Radlsee on the opposite side of the valley is still a very natural area that invites you to embark on somewhat more challenging hikes.
Once arrived at Radlsee, you may wonderfully relax, surrounded by all the elements. A dip into the ice-cold mountain water, a couple of delicious dumplings at the mountain lodge Radlseehütte, bright sunshine and a breath-taking panorama of the Dolomites are well worth the effort of the steep hike. For a more leisurely experience, there are some places to take a swim. The outdoor pool Acquarena in Bressanone, which can be reached in 10 minutes from the farm Marxenhof and offers you free admission with the BrixenCard, invites you to cool off and have fun in its spacious pools every day. The natural swimming pond in Luson offers another alternative, a somewhat more familiar way to cool off on hot summer days. In the towns and villages there are all kinds of cultural activities and festivals that liven up your summertime experience. And the farm Marxenhof is a wonderful place to simply relax, indulge, do nothing, and unwind. In the garden, under the walnut tree, under the fig tree or on the balcony – the farm Marxenhof offers the perfect mix between action and relaxation!
