Holidays in Vipiteno - Vacation on the farm Ralserhof

The Ralserhof located only 2.5 kilometres from the medieval town of Vipiteno and is the ideal starting point for excursions into the wild and romantic mountains of the Alta Val d’Isarco. Vipiteno is considered one of the 50 most beautiful cities in Italy and is the northernmost city in the country. Great wealth came to Vipiteno by the prolific silver mines in the area. Colourful facades and intricately carved gables dominate the entire city centre. The landmark of Vipiteno is the 46 meter “Zwölferturm” (Tower of Twelve). It was built in 1468 and has a stone staircase gable which can be seen from a great distance.
