Culture, tradition & excursions

Customs, legends and traditions

Have you ever seen the animals being taken down from Alpine pastures to the valley? Have you ever danced till dawn at a typical village festival to traditional music? And … do you know why fires are lit on Herz-Jesu Sunday (Sacred Heart Sunday, the third Sunday after Whitsun)? Tradition and customs are essential parts of the culture of South Tyrol: whether religious festivals, processions, or carnivals, they are maintained and celebrated with great enjoyment and pride by the inhabitants of the valley. We hope that you experience some of them during your holiday in the Puster Valley - because where else can you get to know the country and its people better?

Getting to know the country and its people

Our Hotel Leitgamhof is a popular starting point for wonderful excursions in the Puster Valley and round trips in South Tyrol that will enable you to get to known the people, their culture and their cuisine better. Discover the historical sights of South Tyrol, its impressive castles, stately homes and various curiosities. A trip to the nearby towns of Brunico / Bruneck, Brixen / Brissanone, Bolzano, Vipiteno / Sterzing and Merano is also well worthwhile, with their attractive shops, medieval arcades and historic and artistic treasures.
