Holidays in Gais

The small village of Gais in the holiday region Kronplatz in South Tyrol is a good tip for mountain bikers and cyclists loving long tours through varied terrain, but also for guests who like medieval castles and mysterious ruins, as well as the typical and savoury South Tyrolean cuisine.

In the north of Bruneck, the beginning valley of Tauferer Ahrntal widens between Kehlburg Castle on one side and Neuhaus Castle on the other. Right here is the inviting village of Gais – an ideal starting point for bike tours of all kinds as well as for hikes and mountain tours in the nearby nature park Rieserferner-Ahrn.
