Colourful spring in South Tyrol – Holidays in April on the farm Prackfiedererhof
The spring in South Tyrol is colourful and full of contrasts. While on the farm the apple trees are already in full bloom, the alpine meadows below the snow-capped peaks of the Dolomites shine in fresh green. During your holiday in April, you may enjoy hiking and mountain biking in the Nature Park Puez-Odle and on the Zanser Alm. Depending on the time of the day, the bright limestone formations of the Odle glimmer in copper red and light yellow. In S. Maddalena you’ll find the Nature Park House, which gives you a comprehensive insight into the flora and fauna of our alpine region and offers exciting information on the rock formations.
Spring awakening and colourful events
The spring in South Tyrol is welcomed with numerous events in the mountains. On the high plateau of Naz/Sciaves you may participate in the Apple Blossom Festival – an event that attracts visitors from all over South Tyrol. An ambitious challenge for runners is the “Ötzi Alpin Marathon”, where everyone (who is fit enough) can participate. Stunning colour contrasts will truly surprise you during your holidays in April in the botanical gardens of the Castle Trauttmansdorff located in the spa town of Merano. Only 12 kilometres from the farm Prackfiedererhof there is the ancient Episcopal city of Bressanone with its picturesque medieval old town. With a magnificent view of snow capped peaks, in one of the many outdoor cafés you may enjoy a creamy cappuccino.
