An active holiday in summer in a panoramic location overlooking Brixen
The view from the Alpenrose of the Dolomites and the mountains of South Tyrol gives a good indication of the variety of activities that are offered all year round on an active holiday in South Tyrol.
In the warm part of the year the best thing to do is spend the days hiking on the alpine pastures and in the mountains of the idyllic surroundings, or mountain biking around Brixen, over the many pass roads or through the nearby vineyards - on the nearby Pfeffersberg, Villanderer Berg or in the Sarntal Alps. What's more, the Alpenrose, Brixen and the Eisack Valley are simply made for a summer holiday with children. And if the numerous adventure and themed hiking trails (such as the Woody Walk) are not enough, you can also enjoy the varied programme for children on the Plose mountain, such as a descent by mountain cart or mountain biking in Brixen Bike Park with four different trails, splashing about in the Acquarena adventure pool in Brixen or making new friends in our playground.
In summer the diocesan town of Brixen will inspire you with its many interesting events such as Dine, Wine & Music, Summer Emotions, the Mountain Bike Testival, the Brixen Dolomites Marathon, the IMS - International Mountain Summit, sunrise hikes every Friday on the Gabler, and the Bread & Strudel Market... to mention just a few, as well, of course, with the old town itself with its many worthwhile sights.
Not only does the Valley of the Ways offer some especially good hikes, it is also possible to enjoy the mountain landscape and nature by bike. In addition to the Eisack Valley Cycle Trail, on which you can ride into Bolzano and the Puster Valley, and from there continue along the Puster Valley Cycle Trail, Brixen Bike Park on the Plose appeals to all enthusiastic mountain bikers, downhillers and freeriders, as well as those who simply want to try it out. Every biker, be they young or a little older, can let off steam on the four different trails with differing degrees of difficulty. Those who prefer to ride away from “fenced in” trails, would be advised to take a ride to the many picturesque alpine pastures and huts.
