Excursion tips from your Hosts
The best way to get to know a region like the Passeiertal Valley (South Tyrol), its people and products is during a hiking or cycling tour. Starting from Kresspichl you can enjoy beautiful hikes in summer and in winter.
We know about the varied impressions our homeland South Tyrol has to offer. As your hosts we will be glad to provide hiking and cycling tips starting from the Passeiertal Valley. We also organise farm hikes where you can visit the surrounding mountains, our dairy and our bacon cellar.
Bergkristall climbing garden/Bouldering
The “Bergkristall” climbing garden at the back of the Passeiertal Valley is ideal for the entire family since with levels of difficulty between 3a and 7b there is something for everyone.
The Pfelders ski resort is about one kilometre from our accommodation. It is a snow-safe and family-friendly skiing area. The newly constructed Karjoch lift facility (1600-2501m) will bring you to the starting point of the downhill slope and the toboggan run on heated chair lifts or the cable cars. There are two children’s slopes and a natural ice-skating rink. Perfectly groomed and panoramic cross-country tracks lead to the Lazins Valley.
Furthermore, you can enjoy ski tours to Röelspitze Peak (3037 m), enjoy a snow-shoe hike or a winter walk to the natural toboggan run Valtmar.
The Bunker Mooseum is located in the village of Moos in the Passeiertal Valley (South Tyrol). This is an outdoor adventure museum. Exhibitions on the history of the Passeiertal Valley, the Texel Group Nature Park, and the ibex enclosure are only some highlights.
The museum is now located in an old bunker, which was constructed, but never completed, by the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini in the 1940’s. Visitors get an insight into the history of the Passeiertal Valley. 10,000 years old findings give proof of the early settlements in this alpine valley.
Another area of the “Mooseum” is dedicated to World War II and the experiences and stories of the local population. The outdoor part of the “Mooseums” bunker is about the Texel Group Nature Park. An ibex enclosure gives you the opportunity to admire wild animals from close up. Furthermore, you can also visit an aviary. Another area of the bunker museum is dedicated to the mines in St. Martin am Schneeberg, which were closed in 1983 and used to be the highest mines in Europe.
