The enchanted hamlet of St. Oswald high over the Eisack / Isarco Valley in the Seiser Alm vacation region has all the earmarks of a typical little South Tyrolean village: a church, three inns, and about 25 farmsteads. There's also a little alpine school with some ten schoolchildren, a volunteer fire department with 25 active firefighters, and several clubs which help shape the community's social structure.
This restful oasis of peace and relaxation also features two small fish ponds. And you definitely should come and view the unique natural phenomenon of the ice-holes.While there is frequently still snow on the ground in the spring on the Seiser Alm, in St. Oswald, the apple-trees are already in bloom. It truly is a mild and sun-drenched year-round hiking paradise.
In the autumn, St. Oswald offers the unique pleasure of Törggelens. At the Tschötscherhof, too, you can enjoy roasted chestnuts and fresh fruits. If you'd like to try something heartier, we will be happy to serve you barley soup, local pastries, meat platters with sauerkraut, dumplings, and peeled potatoes – all made using home-grown products.
