Haidacher AlmThe Haidacher Alm is run by our cousin, together with his wife and his parents Hartschtl and Christl, the veterans, and the real pillars of the hut. It’s located in the Vila di Sopra valley, and can be reached after a one hour and forty minute walk along an easy and pleasant path. Here you will be able to sample cheese, alm butter and mozzarella, in addition to fruit juices, the sweet Kaiserschmarrn frittata, beef goulash and various desserts; all home made!
