Farm holidays in the winter in the Dolomites – Funes / Alto Adige
Winter is an incredibly special time here in South Tyrol. Because nature takes a break and gathers strength for the new year! Unwind and relax at the farm Planatschhof and recharge your batteries for new experiences.
Embark on a fabulous snowshoe hike or a walk in the nearby forest and enjoy the sun reflecting in the snow and the blue sky in the mountains or take an evening walk under the starry sky.
The animals that live on our farm, apart from the cats, spend the cold winter months in the stables and are looked after by farmer Andreas. They have to be fed and cared for several times a day – And our young and old guests are welcome to assist and help out.
The roads to the farm are safe to drive with winter equipment thanks to good snow clearance.
You may wonderfully relax in our spacious apartments, which are all equipped with underfloor heating and solid wooden floors.
Read a book or enjoy the long winter evenings with your family playing a board game!
After an exciting winter day in the mountains, you may rest and unwind in our sauna and relaxation room with wonderful views, exclusively and in a cozy ambiance.
For the kids
In the winter, our meadows right next to the farm turn into a huge toboggan run – perfect for fun snowball fights, building a snowman or even an entire snow family!
You may also simply romp and play in the snow, make a snow angel and look at the snowflakes in the sky.
Snow shoe hike
When the first snow covers the mountains, forests and meadows, the dream of deep snow fields will come true! Snowshoes can be hired at our farm and you may discover the natural alpine pastures in the world natural heritage site Funes around the Odle Peaks.
Sport lovers may climb the peak Zendleserkofel (2422m) with tour skis and experience a descent in deep snow.
Far from the hustle and bustle on the ski slopes, you may fully enjoy the toboggan run in Funes. At Villmond, descents with a headlamp offer an unforgettable experience.
You may rent toboggans at our farm.
The Funpark ‘Ranui’ at the foot of the toboggan run offers even more fun. Children will find a toboggan run for kids, an igloo, and a play castle.
Bring some variety to your winter holiday and visit the ice rink in St. Peter / Pizack.
For beginners, the Dolomite Valley Funes offers the ski lift Fillerlift in the immediate vicinity of the village center of St. Magdalena. Children and adults who are on skis or snowboards for the first time may playfully explore the small ski area. Sporty ski freaks will also get their money’s worth.
Even in case of bad weather there’s no room for boredom. In the sports zone in St. Peter / Pizack there is a bowling alley waiting for you.
The Puez-Odle Nature Park House has set itself the task of bringing nature closer to our guests and inviting them to linger. A walk-in aerial photo allows visitors to see the nature park from a bird’s eye view and to get detailed views of the landscape.
The exhibition area “Touching Mountains” deals with the main theme in the nature park, the geology of the Dolomites. Rock types and layers representative of the area are displayed in their typical appearance. Stereoscopes installed on site allow a real view of the associated landscape. The “Wunderkammer Natur” on the second floor offers plenty of space for discovery: bird nests, step seals, feathers, furs, antlers, to name just a few. Mountaineering is presented in the area “Conquering Mountains”. Reinhold Messner, who comes from Funes and is probably the world’s most famous mountaineer, tells of his experiences in the mountains in a short film. The Mountain Cinema offers a fixed daily or weekly program of selected nature park film productions. There is of course also the new “Nature Park Film Puez-Geisler” in the new Nature Park House. It shows the audience the special features of the Puez-Geisler Nature Park in fantastic picture sequences.
During Advent and Christmas, it is worth visiting the typical Christmas markets in the nearby towns of Chiusa and Bressanone with their many offers. Furthermore, the markets in Bolzano, Vipiteno and Merano can also be reached comfortably and free of charge by train.
