Hiking Farm Schmalzerhof Eppan – South Tyrol
We offer a guided hike for our guest on demand every week. Details are discussed with all who are interested the day before. Our house is an ideal starting point for several attractive hiking paths.
Popular targets are the guesthouse “Lipp” (fantastic view from the terrace to Bolzano and Appiano and very good home-made bakery and coffee!) and the restaurant “Buchwald” with a fine cuisine. From “Buchwald” you can reach the popular “Eppaner Höhenweg” and the the “Ice Holes” .
