As the countryside awakens in spring, the urge to get out into the open air gets ever stronger and draws us out into the great outdoors and the spring air. A variety of events and workshops on the theme of health, balance, nutritious diet, optimal training techniques for runners and equipment will ensure you have all the basics you need to get the warm season off to a good start.
The events, walks and guided tours take place every week from 6.05 to 30.06 and are suitable for both adults and children from the age of 14 and up. To take part in these events, you must first book at the tourist offices of the Alpe di Siusi holiday area. All guestes, locals and interested persons are welcome!
Orthopaedic foot analysis and the right equipment
Our expert Rudi will analyse your feet and give you an advice about the right hiking and running shoe for you. You will also have the opportunity to analyse running, hiking and mountaineering footwear at the test corner. At the “self-test” you will have the chance to ascertain how your running style affects your body, discover what a difference the right pair of shoes makes, and learn how greatly your feet affect your wellbeing.
Alpine forest bathing – Breathe and recharge your batteries
When we go forest bathing, we dive into the atmosphere of the forest with our every sense. In the peaceful woodland around the idyllic San Costantino lake, we emerge from our everyday routine and come a little closer to our true selves as we watch, hear, touch, smell and taste the forest; through our senses, we create a direct, heartfelt relationship with nature. The ethereal scents released by the trees strengthen our immune system and bring us a sense of inner peace. We can relax to our very depths, and take a step close towards a life of vitality with a new spring in our steps.
Morning daybreak workout with breakfast in the middle of nature
What could be better than watching the sun rise as you enjoy a spot of keep-fit? Early risers are rewarded with clear, fresh air and the tranquillity of the morning to get the day off to a good start, particularly in spring when nature is astir once more. A walking and running group make their way from Siusi through the Telfen woods. After a refreshing balance drink in the wood and a stretching session to wind down, a breakfast will be served on the “King’s Vantage Point” with its royally good views over the Isarco Valley and the Renon plateau.

Bracing training in the open
The countryside surrounding the Peterbühel, a hill in the village and the oldest settlement in Fiè, is a nature fitness studio and rewards you with fresh spring air. So that means step-training on a bench, push-ups against a tree or simply balance training as you press your whole weight down into the changing terrain underfoot. Take a relaxing jog to round off your workout.
Our functional fitness trainer will help you to improve your skills in coodination training and regeneration and explain the connection between movement and quality of life. At the end of the session, a refreshing Balance drink will be served at the village fountain.
Movement in the wood with healthy brunch
Hiking and running through the woods is not only packed with variety, the wood-air is beautifully perfumed with the resin of the trees, a scent which is wonderful for the airways. Separated in two groups – a walking and a running group – our experts Egon and Rudi will lead you through the woods until „Ansitz Velseck“. On the way they will show you, how to get strength out of the wood to use for the daily routine. During the brunch with healthy and regional food, you can enjoy the fascinating view of the Catinaccio mountain before you return to the village.
From plant to plate – A journey through the world of herbs
On a walk with Martha Silbernagl from Siusi to the Pflegerhof organic herb garden, you will learn about spring customs, sagas, learn to identify wild herbs and visit the Malenger mill.
After an aperitif with a flower prosecco and appetizers at the Pflegerhof farm, Martha Mulser will accompany you on a tour through the herb fields. You will learn about the history of the farm, the herbs and their effects. Which early herb stimulates the metabolism, which cleanse the body and which are good for you?
Head Chef Franz Mulser will tell you which herbs bring out flavours to perfection at the end-of-day cookery workshop as he prepares mouth-watering dishes with fresh plants, aromatic herbs and beautiful flowers. All of which, naturally, you will be sampling against the backdrop of the Castel Rovereto ruins.
