Ralserhof – Farm holidays in Vipiteno/Alta Val d’Isarco
The Ralserhof is a traditional South Tyrolean farm, which due its feature is referred to as a closed mountain farm. This describes the indivisibility of the farmstead from its properties. A striking feature of the farm Ralserhof is a small chapel in front of the residential building. It was in the 17th century by missionaries who lived and worked on the farm. We rebuilt the farm in 2004 respecting the traditional architecture. It is located at an altitude of 1,050 meters above sea level, 2.5 kilometres from the city centre of Vipiteno.
