Holidays in Barbian
Barbian is located on a panoramic high plateau in the South Tyrolean holiday region Eisacktal, offering two main attractions: on one hand the leaning church steeple – landmark of the village and on the other hand a very breathtaking view to the famous mountain scenery of Schlern.
Guests who love sports and particularly hiking, will surely enjoy a summer holiday in Barbian, because there is a vast and varied terrain full of walking and hiking paths. For example from Barbian you can go by foot to some other nice villages in Eisacktal like Villanders, Feldthurns, Klobenstein and Ritten or visit the hamlet Dreikirchen or the Trostburg Castle.
Nevertheless, holidays in Barbian are rewarding not only during the hiking season, but the whole year round. In autumn for instance you can discover the harvest tradition named “Törggelen”, which is quite old, but still very popular: People taste the new wine, eat roasted chestnuts and many other regional specialities.
