Experience and enjoy nature


The scenery around Riffian and Kuens offers many surprises for nature lovers, hikers and those who appreciate nature. Beautiful hiking tours and well-marked walking paths lead you through orchards, fields and forests - and up into the sunny mountains. While passing green meadows, fragrant Alpine pastures, roaring brooks and silent mountain lakes you feel like in the midst of nature. A true enjoyment for your senses.

Clambering and conquering mountains


Hiking in the Nature Park of the Texel Group is one of many special experiences. Clear mountain air, coloured Alpine meadows and bubbling mountain brooks let you switch off from everyday life. Here, you will find a rich flora and fauna and you will make many interesting discoveries. If you dare to climb up to rocky heights, you will not only get insight into a varied nature life but you will also enjoy magnificent panoramic views into the valley.

Festivals and tradition


Festivals are part of the daily life in the village. Every association has its own annual celebration. The musical framework is also important as it guarantees joy and fun. People celebrate into the early hours of the morning - with a glass of wine and other typical South Tyrolean specialities. In autumn, the old tradition of spending some time in typical cellar restaurants is extensively popular: the "Törggele" time has begun.

Discover the variety

Nearby, the well-known spa town of Meran still shows its flair from times gone by. The noble buildings of art nouveau and the beautiful promenades will give you a great pleasure. They are an experience also for shopping sprees.

The Golf Club Passeier is nearby and offers ideal conditions for passionate golfers. Many hotels have their own private tennis courts. Adventurer will enjoy tandem flights, canyoning and mountain biking. And there is much much more.
