S├╝dtirol Balance in autumn

Our guests have the opportunity to participate in almost all activities for free!


Mental strength,
from forest and roots

Tuesday: 10 and 17 September 2019; 01 and 15 October 2019
14:00 - 18:00 p.m.

Just as plants absorb the nutrients they need for winter through their roots, we humans stock up on our energy resources through the warming rays of the sun. At the “Karlottenkofel” hill, a power-site in Siusi allo Sciliar/Seis am Schlern, Monika will show you how to get your energy for the winter by “forest bathing.” You will learn a wealth of information about the dandelion and how to make dandelion salt from its roots. Nearby, Elias lives a self-sufficient life at his farm, the Furscherhof. He will be telling us about how nature and the seasons affect his life and the steps involved in making his own food, from the very beginning right through to the final product.

During the hike, participants will gather autumn herbs and learn all there is to know about the Butter Witches, the wild Saligen fairies and the sorcerer Kachler Hans and his legendary love of buckwheat dumplings. We’ll be stopping off at the Gostner Schwaige hut for refreshments, prepared using the herbs we have gathered on the way. To round off, we will be helping award-winning chef Franz to prepare mouthwatering dishes of South Tyrol tradition: When you try these culinary specialities, you will see exactly why buckwheat is a recurring theme in so many sagas and legends in the holiday region Seiser Alm.

The magic of the morning – Movement in the autumn countryside and a healthy, alkaline picnic breakfast

Thursday: 12 and 19 September; 03 and 17 October 2019
6:30 - 10:00 a.m.

Early In the morning, we take the Marinzen lift to the Alpine pasture of the same name, towering on high above Castelrotto/Kastelruth. The breath-taking, sweeping landscape is the perfect place to recharge your batteries, especially in the morning sun. Surrounded by larch trees - the trees of light and grounding - we charge our energy through breathing exercises. During the following phase, a retreat ritual, we store the energy of this power site within us, storing up the strength to see us through winter and enhance our stamina.
To round off, we feast on a healthy alkaline-based breakfast at the picturesque lake and gather a series of tips and breakfast ideas to use at home.

Strengthening workout at the laghetto di Fiè lake

Friday: 13, 20 and 27 September; 04, 11, 18 and 25 October 2019
17:30 - 19:00 p.m.

When the days get shorter, the woodland takes on a golden hue and all the countryside lies down to rest, the instinct to stock up on our energy for the coming winter gets ever stronger. Gentle running training at the natural swimming lake of Fiè with integrated Functional Fitness Training to strengthen your body – Core Training – will give you all the stability and balance you need for day-to-day life.
Functional Fitness comprises movement patterns which train multiple joints and muscle groups at the same time. The aim of this type of training is to improve the body’s stability and tension and employ targeted training techniques to develop the core muscles of the body, between the diaphragm and hips. Core training helps to enhance athletic performance, prevent injury and counter back pain and bad posture.

Rudi Brunner and Egon Zuggal

Meeting point: Info point at the parking space at the Laghetto di Fiè Lake at 17:30 p.m.
Registration: in hotel.


Saturday: 14, 21 and 28 September; 05, 12, 19 and 26 October 2019
14:00 - 16:00 p.m.

Fit-Walking is stamina hiking, health training, stress-relief and healthy movement in the open air, all rolled into one. Beginning with a power-walk start from the set-off point in Lavina Bianca/Weisslahnbad in Tires/Tiers, we decelerate to a slow-walk speed as we approach the Wuhnleger lake, with the Catinaccio/Rosengarten reflected in its waters, and then take a loop-route back to Tires. When we move both our arms and legs while walking, numerous muscles are brought into play; breathing becomes deeper, blood circulation improves and oxygen supply increases. The aims of this technique are, above all, to banish stress, to bond with the earth and nature, to find peace and to breathe properly.

Rudi Brunner and Egon Zuggal

Meeting point: Parking space Bagno di Lavina Bianca in S. Cipriano/Tires at 14:00 p.m.
Registration: in hotel.
