Culture & customs

Boredom in South Tyrol? There is no such thing!

Because there is always something going on here, throughout the whole year there are all kinds of highlights from the fields of sport, culture and tradition in Kastelruth.
Kastelruther is also the proud home of the local folk band 'Kastelruther Spatzen'.

Kastelruther farmer wedding

The farmer's wedding was only held in winter - the sparse life of the mountain farmers did not allow any waste of time during the summer months.
A real Kastelruther farmer's wedding therefore requires horse-drawn sleighs.
The peasant wedding was not only a celebration for the invited, no, the whole village was there. It was a farmer's holiday.
Alongside unique mountains and numerous hiking trails, South Tyrol also has a lot to offer in the way of sightseeing.

Not only the city centres of the provincial capital Bozen and the bishop's town Brixen are worth seeing, but also the world famous glacier mummy Ötzi (Ice-Man), Reinhold Messner's new mountain museum, the gardens of Trautmannsdorff Castle as well as numerous natural and cultural monuments.

Brixen and Bozen, only 25 and 30 km respectively from the Treffhof, are lively and traditional cities with a lot of charm and gastronomic variety, where shopping becomes an experience.
