FOR two GENERATIONS WE HAVE COOKED WHAT WAS GROWING IN OUR GARDEN. IN THE MEANTIME OUR GUESTS CAN ENJOY THE WONDERFUL VIEW OF THE CATINACCIO/ROSENGARTEN AND HIS NEIGHBORS.

Gastronomy

Savouring Nature

Depending on the season, we take advantage of what the surrounding nature offers us, such as nettle, Good King Henry, dandelion and wild garlic. Watercress, radishes and various sorts of salads grow majestically in the biological garden behind our house, at an altitude of 1737m.

Moreover, our cows provide us with fresh milk, which we use to produce our mountain dairy butter, curd and yogurt. During winter we produce speck and Kaminwurzen without pickling salt and we smoke them with our juniper.

Preisinformation – Sommersaison

For breakfast you will find coffee, tea, homemade jams prepared by Bernadette, several types of bread, speck, cheese and home-made butter.

Discovering Nature

Tschafon hut lies at the foot of Catinaccio/Rosengarten and is therefore an ideal starting point for several walks and hikes in the mountains. From here, our guests can benefit from the breathtaking view on the peaks of Catinaccio/Rosengarten, the Vajolet towers, Sciliar and Latemar, as well as of the surrounding nature, where wild herbs, berries and mushrooms grow and are then served to our guests.

The eldest nature park of South Tyrol, the Sciliar-Rosengarten, excites with its rich flora and fauna and is surrounded by the edgy peaks of the Dolomites, UNESCO world natural heritage site. Tschafon hut is the ideal starting or arrival point for your hikes, be they easy trips or multi-day tours, in one of South Tyrol’s most fascinating mountain environments.

The starting point is in Lavina Bianca, located upstream of S. Cipriano-Tires, where you will find many free parking lots. Path 4A leads, with a slight rise, to the forest road to the Wuhnleger, a pasture with a small pond, in whose water the summits of Catinaccio/Rosengarten and of the Vajolet towers are reflected (popular photo opportunity). Path n. 4 begins on the north side and leads to a crossway with a wooden crucifix: the comfortable path is panoramically very fascinating and less steep than the forest road. Along the way you will find many benches to stop by and catch your breath, while taking a look on the astonishing surrounding peaks and over the Tires valley. The last part of the trail leads to Tschafon hut (1737 m) through a mountain pine forest. From here it’s possible to reach in just 20 minutes the nearby top of Monte Balzo (Völseggspitze), a promontory with two panoramic terraces from where you can contemplate the Brenta Group, the Adamello glaciers, the Ötztal and Stubai Alps, the Catinaccio/Rosengarten, the Latemar, Corno Bianco and Corno Nero.

The starting point of this walk is the public parking lot at Schönblick restaurant, upstream of Aica di Fiè. From here you have to follow path n. 6 eastward and after about 20 minutes you will reach the Ansitz Völsegg residence. Following path 4B for about 40 minutes, you will reach the pasture of Wuhnleger with its small pond, in which the legendary Catinaccio/Rosengarten and the Vajolet towers are reflected (popular photo opportunity). Afterwards you have to proceed on paths n. 4 and 4A towards Tschafon hut (1737 m). Hungry by the climb, hikers can enjoy the tasty delicacies freshly prepared; meanwhile the children can have fun in the large surrounding lawn. From the hut you can reach in just 20 minutes the nearby summit of Monte Balzo (Völseggspitze), a rocky ledge with two panoramic terraces, from where you can be amazed by the unrivaled view of the Brenta Group, the Adamello glaciers, the Ortler massif, the Ötztal and Stubai Alps, the Catinaccio/Rosengarten, the Latemar, Corno Bianco and Corno Nero. The descent takes place along the north side of the Tschafon on path n. 4, towards Fiè. Halfway down the mountain, you will cross paths n. 7A and 7, leading back to the starting point, at Schönblick restaurant.

A nice hike towards Tschafon hut starts from the pond of Fiè, at the foot of the Sciliar. Directly by the lake you will find a big shaded parking lot; from there you have to take path n. 1 in the direction of Malga Tuff and Malga Hofer and then proceed on path n. 7, which runs alongside the Croda del Maglio. After walking for a total of three and a half hours, you will reach Tschafon hut on path 7B. Freshly prepared dishes such as salads, canederli dumplings with goulash, omelettes with nettle and Good King Henry spinach and wild berries’ cakes are only some of the many specialties of the hut. The descent takes place on the southern side of the Tschafon, following paths n. 4 and 4A towards Tires. From here you will go back to the starting point at the pond of Fiè by taking a hiking bus. The excursion can be walked in the opposite direction as well.

The trail on the ridge of Croda del Maglio is the most challenging route to reach Tschafon hut. The starting point of this hike is the parking lot of Lavina Bianca di Tires (1180 m). The tour begins with a steep ascent on path n. 2, through the gorge of Gola dell’Orsara (Bärenfalle) up to the saddle “Sella Cavaccio" (Tschafatsch-Sattel–2070 m). For the following stretch along path n. 9, towards Croda del Maglio (Hammerwand) – Tschafon, a sure-footedness and no fear of heights are required. The trail changes every step of the way and rewards with breathtaking landscapes, reaching the summits of Mezzodì (Mittagskofel), Monte Nicola (Nigglbergs) and Croda del Maglio (Hammerwand), until reaching Tschafon hut. After a restoring break at the hut, the descent takes place along path n. 4 – 4A up to the parking of Lavina Bianca.

Bernadette & Josef

The second generation of the hut takes care of the cuisine, the garden and the guests. When the evening stillness reigns over the dusky fields, it is possible to listen to the stories about the construction, the renovation and the life of the mountain dairy.

Barbara & Georg

Renovating and combining the modern lifestyle with the respect for the principles in force up here, such as using the earnest local supplies, a solid structure and producing one’s own meals, is the hard task of the third generation.
