Your Easter holiday in South Tyrol: New blossoms and old traditions
Why nor spend your next short vacation for Easter in Alta Pusteria? The snow IS disappearing bit by bit from the mountain slopes, but on the ski slopes of our region you can still enjoy some fantastic ski rides under the warm spring sun. For hikers, spring start is an amazing time to experience the awakening of nature, to witness the blossoming of uncountable crocus flowers and to take deep, energising breaths of fresh spring air. An Easter holiday in South Tyrol will grant you unforgettable moments – especially in Villabassa!
Show down of the hard boiled eggs
In Alta Pusteria we love ancient customs and traditions. The very funny practice awaits you on Easter Sunday after church. It goes by the name “Preisguffen”. The “Von Kurz Platz” in the town centre is the meeting point for all locals of Villabassa. With the coloured eggs from Holy Thursday, the show down of the hard boiled eggs begins. The contestants first poke their opponent’s egg on the top side and then on the round side, to crack the egg shell. During your short vacation for Easter you can whiteness this spectacle from the first row.
Something for everybody
If you are enjoying an Easter holiday in South Tyrol with your kids, you can go search for Easter bunnies, which are hiding in the gardens of the village. A short vacation for Easter offers fun for everyone: sportive activities, peaceful relaxation and plenty of fun!
