The small but wonderful villages of the municipality – Tisens, Prissian, Grissian, Naraun, Gfrill, Platzers and Schernag – are located on a sunny hill in the Etschtal Valley, south of Meran. In Tisens, cordial hospitality and best service are waiting for you, as well as modern hotels and cosy apartments, tailored to your particular needs, culinary highlights of the regional cuisine…

But that is not all. A varied calendar of events ensures that during every season of the year, there is always something to do. Very popular are the “chestnut days” and “Törggelen” tradition at the beginning of autumn. Tisens is well-known for its delicious chestnuts and even has a chestnut festival: the so called “Keschtnriggl” chestnut days annually in October.

Activities for the whole family

Tisens is known for its felt art. The international path of felt art, a 4 km long fairy-tale path with felt figures is a highlight for both kids and adults.

We also recommend the Vorbichl adventure trail in Prissian. The path is also suitable for strollers and particularly popular during the flowering period of Erica. Also, it leads through shady woods.

Rainguthof animal farm in Gfrill offers many unforgettable experiences for families with kids too. The rustic mountain farm is the home for many animals such as ponies, goats, horses, ducks and pigs. Many of them can be stroked by kids and their yearly offspring is a highlight for all guests.
