Holidays in AprilSpring awakening in Maranza
An Easter holiday in South Tyrol has a special charm. While the top of the mountains are still covered with snow white caps, in the valley nature awakens to new life. Warm air from the Mediterranean region melts the snow and the alpine meadows shine in bright green. The flowers raise their heads out of the earth and in the Val d’Isarco the apple and plum trees in the orchards are in full bloom. Everything radiates optimism. Butterflies dance in the warm sunshine from flower to flower, and in the woods the birds are chirping. The air at an altitude of 1,400 meters above sea level is clear and fresh and invites you to stay outdoors.
Nature experiencesduring the Easter holidays in South Tyrol
On the sunny plateau of Maranza during your holiday in April you will discover this spirit of optimism. The South Tyrolean mountain village lies at the foot of Mount Gitschberg that dominates the entire region with an altitude of 2,510 meters. The Pension Pfeiferhof is a little off the town centre and is surrounded by lush green fields. Beautiful hiking trails start in the immediate vicinity of your holiday home. The alpine flowers in the meadows create colourful splashes of colour in the natural environment. In April, the bees are already under way and collect the sweet nectar in the meadows and pastures. On the “Bee Path” you may enjoy an interesting circular walk in Maranza. Here, several boards you will teach interesting facts about these insects and the production of sweet honey.
