Farming culture in Gsies
A stay in Gsies in Pustertal promises relaxation far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, in the midst of untouched mountain nature and in direct contact with the traditions of locals. The valley of Gsies with its neighbor Rasen-Antholz constitutes a side valley of Pustertal, at the foot of Rieserferner-group and the Alps of Defregger.
To reach the traditional valley, you turn North at Welsberg and soon find the villages Taisten, Pichl, St. Martin and St. Magdalena. The valley is mostly flat and surrounded by hillsides covered in forests, giving ground to a proud number of mountain farms.
Numerous walking paths lead from the hotels in Gsies through the country side up to the mountains, where the lodges dish up delicious meals that can be savored while enjoying a wonderful view over the Dolomites. One walk leads up the Ochsenfelder mountain pasture and its two little lakes.

On the mountain farm Voadohuibn in St. Magdalena visitors can discover life on a mountain farm through the museum exhibiting a variety of traditional tools and other appliances. Cheese fans find here the smallest show dairy in South Tyrol. Milk- and cheese products are manufactured here following old traditions, and can be tasted upon request.
In the colder season, you will find a land of possibilities, a few of which are cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, sleigh riding, snowshoe walking or ski touring. The ski-buses bring guests regularly to the ski resort Kronplatz, which offers a spectacular view of 360 degrees. If you would like to experience the traditional valley in the North of Pustertal, find here the most beautiful hotels in Gsies in the South Tyrolean holiday region Kronplatz.
