The South Tyrol Museum of Folk Traditions at Dietenheim About the Museum
According to the German ADAC Holiday Atlas, the museum of Folk Traditions at Dietenheim is one of the most beautiful open-air museums in Europe. It is spread over 4 hectares of land and includes also the stately residence Mair am Hof, which is the hearth of the Museum. It was founded in 1976.
The Mair am Hof Residence hosts various museum collections: votive tablets, popular art objects, cithers, belts, traditional costumes, pipes, etc.
On the open-air site there are several old farms and workshops. These buildings show a variety of forms and structures, which indicate the role and social status of rural population. Various kinds of vegetables, herbs and flowers grow in the farm gardens. Farm and yard animals graze on the meadows.
The Mair am Hof Residence
The stately residence Mair am Hof was built between 1690 and 1700 by Anton Wenzel von Sternbach (1651 - 1716). During the last centuries the estate passed into the hands of several owners. Before hosting the Museum, the main building was used as a school.
The Open Air Site
The open air site is the natural completion of the Residence and it is definitely worth seeing. About a dozen of old farms, workshops and rural buildings have been kept here in their original condition. A variety of vegetable gardens, orchards and fields with farm animals complete the rural scenery of this amazing museum site.
It's one of the most popular places of pilgrimage in the valley Pustertal.
The church has existed in its current way since 1465. Very popular is the "Miraculous Image" which shows the Lamentation of Christ.
The pilgrimage church can be visited every day from 7.00 AM to 19.00 PM.
In 1996 was built a contemplation pathway, which leads from the pilgrimage church in Aufkirchen to the oldest religious sanctuary of the area: The chapel "St. Peter am Kofel" on an altitude of 1450 m.
This place in the woods above Aufkirchen (Toblach/Dobbiaco) has always attracted many people and has probably been build in Carolingian Times.
The historian Karl Gruber has observed the probable reason of why the chapel was built in such a special place: On the day of midwinter at 12.00 a ray beam shines through the window of the chapel and lights the altar.
On the path to the "Peterkirchl" – as it is called by the local people – you pass 7 points of reflection,which show scenes of the life of Petrus.

For amateurs and professionals
Concentrating, even when the heart rate has gone up to 180 and won’t quit, allowing the hand to bob up and down in rhythm to the blood. Reducing the entire world for just a moment to only the line of sight – with the biathlon, a lot more is demanded than just stamina and energy. It is also about command of the body here. Anyone who would like to try out this sport once can do so at any time at the Anterselva-Antholz Biathlon Center – either in the form of a course or else in a race for fun with friends.
The biathlon high point of every season in the area is very clearly the World Cup that is held here every year. It simply has to be experienced how thousands of spectators and fans from all over the entire world cross their fingers for their favorites who have traveled here from far and wide and also get a roar going together in the stadium and the festival tent. During the day, it’s the stands that are shaking, and at night it’s the dance floors. The renowned biathlon World Cup race is more than just a sporting event in the midst of the wild and breathtakingly beautiful mountain scenery. This is where winter itself is celebrated.

Always the last news
After the surprising victory of the Tyrolean troops over the French, the so-called Sacred Heart Sunday was celebrated on the 3rd Sunday after Pentecost. Andreas Hofer renewed the oath before the Battle of Bergisel against the French and Bavarians as a unifying bond among the Tyroleans: Hofer's troops were victorious, and this made Sacred Heart Sunday a high holiday.
The Sacred Heart fires are still lit in many valleys today on Sacred Heart Saturday or Sunday and illuminate the sky over South Tyrol. Dolomiti Superbike
Dolomiti Superbike is considered to be one of the most impressive scenic and at the same time toughest MTB races in South Tyrol and throughout Europe. Roughly 4,500 pros and amateur mountain bikers go on a pilgrimage in July year after year to tranquil Villabassa/Niederdorf for a sporty biking holiday in South Tyrol and transform the village and the entire Val Pusteria/Pustertal into THE hotspot for mountain bikers and bikers in the Dolomites and the Alps for a few days.

Positive effects at an altitude of over 1,500 m.a.s.l
According to a wide-ranging vacation study in Austria, you can recharge your batteries if you vacation at an altitude of over 1,500 meters.
This is another advantage of our location:
We are at 1,650 m asl.
Here is an excerpt of the most important results of the pilot study in Lech
• The economization of the cardiovascular behavior, especially shown in the blood pressure and pulse behavior; there was a decrease in elevated blood pressure values, normalization of the pulse rate, and blood pressure-lowering medication could be reduced.
• Improvement of the blood sugar and blood lipid metabolism situation.
• Change in anthropometric data, with average weight decreases of 2.5 kg, the decrease being primarily due to a decrease in body fat mass, while body water and lean body mass remained unchanged.
• Positive neuropsychological effects: significant and sustained decrease in subjective symptoms, improvement in positive attitude towards life, negative mood decreased, average reaction times were continuously improved, sleep quality and duration as well as the ability to sleep through the night have increased significantly.
• Increase in young red blood cells (reticulocytes), which have better oxygen transport capabilities
• Decrease in substances that promote thrombosis (fibrinogen).
First trends of the comparative study
The first trends of the comparative study in Obertauern/Mauterndorf/Bad Tatzmannsdorf 2000 confirm the results of the Lech pilot study and show positive effects both at altitude and in the valley, e.g. B.
• Economization of the circulatory behavior (pulse)
• Decrease in body weight
• Improvement of well-being
• At high altitude, due to the special climatic conditions (slightly lower oxygen pressure, mild hypoxia), there is an additional factor that particularly activates our reserves. This causes, for example, an improvement in the oxygen transport function and an increase in the blood-regenerating hormone erythropoietin / the timing of the various changes at altitude and in the valley is also different.
• Leptins and assessment of the oxidative stress factors were also examined for the first time in connection with a mountain or valley vacation; new insights can be expected into the effects of vacationing on appetite and weight regulation, as well as the body's detoxification abilities; Details can only be announced after the evaluations have been completed.
