Welcome to the
farm holiday on the Alpe di Siusi
Heartfelt greetings from South Tyrol – Walter and Barbara and their children Stephanie, Elisa, Andreas and Michael welcome you to the sunny and very quiet farm “Grunser“. We are pleased to have you on our website and to give you a sneak peek at a relaxing farm holiday on the Alpe di Siusi.
Your Mahlknecht family
Our farm is surrounded by green meadows and forests on the southern slopes of the nearby Alpe di Siusi. In the heart of the fabled mountains of the Dolomites – a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2009 – on our farm you may experience South Tyrolean hospitality and pure enjoyment of nature. The Sciliar, one of the most famous mountains in South Tyrol, is clearly visible from the balcony of your farm holiday apartment.
During you farm holidays, in just 10 minutes by car you may reach the Alpe di Siusi, which with its 56 square kilometres is the largest mountain plateau in Europe. This offers you unlimited possibilities to turn your holiday into a special experience. In every season, the Nature Park Sciliar-Catinaccio has a particular charm. Both in spring and in summer the meadows stand out in fresh green and are covered with thousands of alpine flowers. A walk along the 350 km of well-marked hiking trails, in the midst of this beautiful natural scenery, animates all your senses. The varied landscape also invites you to climbing, biking and paragliding. In winter, the Alpe di Siusi is covered with a glittering snow carpet. Cross-country skiers, winter hikers, snowshoers and skiers can freely indulge in their hobbies. As our guest you will receive a special car permit that allows you to drive on the beautiful Alpe di Siusi.
