Surroundings

The yard is wonderfully sunny, and is situated among vineyards and orchards. Girlaner Platz, the centre of this parish of Eppan / Appiano, with a population of 3,000, is only a few minutes walking distance from us. There is a supermarket, a pharmacy, and a good few restaurants and cafés are also easy to get to.

The lakes of Montiggle / Monticolo, a favourite destination for hikers, cyclists and sunbathers is quite near and can easily be reached by foot, by bike, or by shuttle bus. The main town of South Tyrol – Bozen / Bolzano – is also well connected by public transport, and offers countless possibilities to shoppers and those interested in culture.

Sigmundskron Castle, which is owned by Reinhold Messner the famous mountaineer, is only a short hike away. The castle is a very special place – and not only because we, the Niedermayrs, celebrated our wedding there! In terms of sport and leisure activities, Eppan / Appiano has almost everything the heart could wish for: climbing, golf, tennis, cycling, swimming, hiking . . . so you can enjoy a very sporty holiday! Something worth seeing, which is also within walking distance, is Sportzone Rungg. This is a really nice, new football ground where the German national team will prepare for the World Cup in May 2018. When the team stays and trains in Girlan, we won’t be very far away from the football stars!

In our info-corner you will find many ideas for trips and excursions. Other popular and convenient destinations include the Dolomites, the name of the local mountain range, Lake Garda, the resort spa town Meran / Merano, and Lake Kaltern / Caldaro.
