Farm experience not far away from Seiser Alm
In our small community of Völs am Schlern you can take part in a lot of activities. In the farm‘s adventure week, for example, the family visits several courtyards around to learn about the home-manufactured products and to find answers to exciting questions like “How are horses shoed?” or “How is corn tunred into flour?” or clarify “From cow to milk”. Of course there are all sorts of delicacies to taste.
Witches’ charm on Seiser Alm
Our good “witch” Martha takes young and old ones to mysterious places on Seiser Alm, knows all the herbs in the forest and has some interesting stories to tell. Along witch walks across Puflatsch and Schloss Prösels you can learn something about interesting places in the Schlern area, including the Witches’ Benches where you might still encounter Schlern witches.
