Enjoy the unique location of our house in the middle of the countryside, but still very close to the centres of St. Michael Eppan and St. Pauls. It isn’t far either from Bozen: by car it is only 15 minutes to drive to the South Tyrolean capital.
Thanks to the convenient geographic location there are a lot of nearby destinations which we would recommend you to visit. For those who like the open air, directly from the house by foot, or after a short drive you have plenty of hiking options. On the closest mountain, the Mendelkamm, you will have many hiking options. If you would like two proposals, we would suggest the Eislöcher (holes of ice) a unique natural phenomenon. At an altitude of 500 meters you will experience, due to internal air flows, a climate as if you were at 1500 meters. Alternatively you can walk in a region boasting the largest number of castles in Europe, and transport yourself back hundreds of years ago.
Those who want to have things more challenging can walk into the beautiful and very impressive Dolomite mountains.
The Überetsch has a comprehensive bicycle network and three very nice lakes where you can swim or relax: the Kalterer See as well as the large and small Montiggl Lake. Other special destinations for your excursions could be the historic centres of Meran with the world famous Tappeiner promenade, and Bozen with the Lauben, a very nice, mediaeval street with shops. Equally there is a very famous archaeology museum with the glacier mummy Ötzi. Lake Garda, Venice or the opera in the Arena of Verona are also within comfortable travelling distance.
You can find a lot of information about leisure activities in Eppan and the surrounding areas in our list of links. (For simplicity, the names of the attractions and cities are only mentioned in German. Of course, there would also be the Italian name.)
