Experience culture around Hotel Lamm
Kastelruth Museum of Traditional Costumes
The traditional costumes of the Mt Sciliar/Schlern area are a custom that is lovingly continued to this day. The market community of Kastelruth has a large variety of traditional costumes, which are a precious part of our cultural heritage. In the Kastelruth Museum of Traditional Costumes, these are carefully researched, documented, and exhibited. It serves not only as a museum, but also as a point of contact and source of information. It’s the ideal place to quench your thirst for knowledge about this tradition.
St. Valentin church
St. Valentin church above Seis is surrounded by flower-filled meadows in spring and summer and makes a pretty picture with Mt Sciliar/Schlern in the background. Its history reaches back to the 12th century, with the well-preserved frescoes standing testament.
Sciliar-Catinaccio/Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park
Interesting geological models in the Sciliar-Catinaccio/Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park House illustrate the inconceivable journey of Mt Sciliar/Schlern, which began millions of years ago in the east of Africa. Among other wonders, you can admire the formation of the Sciliar/Schlern Dolomite from coral reefs, search for special plants and animals, and – if you visit at night – maybe even see semi-nocturnal and nocturnal inhabitants of the nature park with your own eyes.
Marinzen Alm pasture
Marinzen Alm pasture is found at 1,500 metres above sea level in the Mt Sciliar/Schlern area. It’s a real insider tip for peace seekers and should be at the top of your list of excursion destinations. It’s located on the slopes of Mt Bullaccia/Puflatsch on the northwestern edge of Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm. Whether you want to relax, walk, hike, or bike, Marinzen Alm pasture is ideal for the whole family.
Built around the beginning of the 13th century, Presule/Prösels castle near Völs offers an exciting insight into the history of the Schlern area. The magnificent building was given its present design in the 16th century: At that time, Leonhard von Völs, the governor and burgrave of Tyrol, had the old castle converted into a stunning Gothic palace. As part of a guided tour of the castle, you have the opportunity to visit the historic castle courtyard, the castle chapel, the fireplace room, the Knights’ Hall, the chambers of Prince Leonhard von Völs, and the armoury.
Hauenstein catle ruins
The legendary Hauenstein castle ruins at the foot of Sciliar/Schlern massif were built in the 12th century and enlarged in the 15th century. Today, only a few remains of the walls bear witness to its former glory days. Nevertheless, the ruins hidden in the forest, where the famous minstrel Oswald von Wolkenstein once lived, are still a popular hiking destination. You can reach the ruins via the Oswald von Wolkenstein trail. This hiking path starts at the valley station of the Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm cable car and leads past both the Hauenstein ruins and the Salegg ruins.
Seven small chapels with large wood-carved figures adorn the pilgrimage path that leads to Mt Calvario/Kalvarienberg in Kastelruth. From this small forested hill, you can enjoy an amazing view of the Santner massif, the village, and the surrounding area. The place where benches and meadows invite you to rest today was once the site of the castle of the lords of Kastelruth, of which only the remains of the keep can still be seen.
Lake Fiè/Völser Weiher
One of the cleanest swimming lakes in Italy is just a 20-minute drive from our Hotel Lamm: Lake Fiè/Völser Weiher is a popular destination for families and active holidaymakers in both winter and summer. Here you can swim, row a boat, and enjoy the sun on warm days. The area around the bathing lake also invites you to explore: Lake Fiè/Völser Weiher is an ideal starting point for hikes, bike rides, and mountain tours in the Schlern area. In winter, the frozen lake is a popular meeting place for ice skating and hockey games.
