The global weather services of wetter.de,meteo.it, etc. are not very accurate for our area. The special location (in the north of Italy, south side of the Alps, close to Austria) makes the algorithms sweat…
Our weather report is very accurate
May we introduce ourselves?
The 4 of us, Alexia & Manfred with little Max and Marie run our small but very fine and exclusive mountain farm with full dedication.
Once again a warm greeting from us and enjoy your stay!
is the thinker and driver at the Glinzhof: new ideas – rustic and genuinely packaged, never cease to amaze our guests.
is the whirlwind in the house. Always in a good mood and always outgoing, he welcomes young and old in his own way.
is the good soul of the house! Her sunny disposition is infectious; her loving and natural manner spoils.
our youngest keeps us on our toes with her energy!
First and foremost, our mountain farm is a place in the Dolomites to relax and feel good, high above the Puster Valley at 1,500 m above sea level. The cosy atmosphere of a mountain farm has been combined with modern comforts.
Here you can smell the mountain meadow hay and the natural woods, enjoy the sunny panoramic position and feel the pure mountain air. But also the farm’s own products and the honest hospitality let people find the peace again that is so often lost in everyday life.
If you have any questions or if you notice something interesting on the farm, we are always at your disposal. You are welcome to visit the animals in our stable. We ask parents to accompany the children at all times!
Every Wednesday and Saturday we meet at 10 a.m. in the stable for pony riding!
What is there to discover
Our cows are milked twice a day. Their milk is delivered to the local cheese dairy, which uses it to produce delicious cheese, yoghurt, butter, curd cheese and much more. You are welcome to watch the milking and/or taste the milk. Just let us know how many liters you want. We would like to point out that the milk comes directly from the cow, it is not pasteurized. We recommend heating them before drinking.
You can watch our free-range chickens all day long. We are happy to bring you our own eggs. Just let us know.
Our house dog Schnuffi, the cats, our pony Willi, donkey Peter and the llamas are loyal and dear playmates for old and young. However, we ask you to keep in mind that animals are always unpredictable. Schnuffi and our cats can be anywhere on the farm. Only in the parlor and in the rooms you are not wanted.
Our herb garden
The rich organic vegetable garden is located on the valley side of the farm. Organic herbs such as dill, tarragon, chervil, marjoram, lemon balm, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, rocket, sage, chives, thyme and wild garlic are grown in the raised beds. The fresh vegetables and herbs are served daily with the dishes.
On the way up to the Bergstube we planted the following fruit trees in summer 2014:
At the end of the fence near the trampoline we planted shrubs:
All fruits can be harvested and eaten.
- 1604: During renovation work, a wooden beam is found with the inscription 1,604 A.D. It can be assumed that the farm was built around this time.
- 1945: Birth of Jakob
- 1947: Birth of Selbenbacher Maria
- 1970: The Glinzhof is developed with an access road
- 1973: Jakob takes over the farm and marries Mrs. Selbenbacher Maria

- 1977: The first guests “stray” to the Glinzhof. This event is to leave a lasting mark on the history of the farm. The German couple stays only one night and gives Mother Maria a tip. This tip was more than father Jakob earned in a month with the 2 cows in the stable. A light goes on for Mother Maria! A completely new source of income is discovered as additional income. But father Jakob waves it off pessimistically. He does not believe that people will come up here. Mother Maria as the driving force does not give up and soon has the first “real” guests.
- 1978: The one room is rented out very well. A licence to rent out guest beds is applied for at the municipality. Thus the Glinhof is the first business with farm holidays.

- 1984: The entire roof truss is renewed, 3 more guest rooms are added.
- 1999: Son Manfred takes over the farm
- 2001: Father Jakob passes away after a short illness.
- 2002: The old stable is demolished and replaced by a modern farm building.
- 2003: The entire energy supply is converted to renewable sources. From now on, the solar system, wood chip heating and photovoltaic system supply the entire energy demand!
- 2006: The Bergstube is built. From now on the guests of the Glinzhof eat in the Bergstube.
- 2007: Angelika marries Michael from the neighbouring Zwiglhof.
- 2007: The Glinzhof is in deep mourning; mother Maria passes away after a short but serious cancer illness.
- 2008: The Glinzhof is completely renovated and a winter garden is added to the south side.
- 2009: A milestone for the future: Manfred marries the love of his life, Alexia.
- 2010: Little Max is born
2011: The parking spaces are roofed over and the chalet is added as the 3rd building to the Glinzhof.
- 2012: Construction of a combined heat and power plant for the production of CO2-neutral electricity and heat.
- 2013: Little Marie sees the light of day and completes our family.
- 2014: The Glinzhof is the first farm in South Tyrol to achieve the maximum rating of 5 flowers.

For allergy sufferers
As an allergy sufferer, it is often not easy. It is important to find accommodation on holiday that offers as few allergens as possible.
At the Glinzhof you will find many factors that make a holiday for allergy sufferers easier:
- The altitude (1,500 m) with clean air
- Smoking ban in the entire house for more than 30 years now
- Floor coverings made of untreated larch wood
- Central vacuum system with washed exhaust air to the outside
- Daily cleaning of the entire house
- Biological construction with natural building materials
- Total renunciation of lacquers and plastics in the furnishing
- Own allergy rooms (pets taboo!)
- Healthy materials for textiles and furnishings
Rücksicht vom Bett bis zur Pfanne! Unsere Küche stellt sich gerne auf die Bedürfnisse von Nahrungsmittel-Allergikern ein.
For coeliac disease
We use Dr. Schär products for the preparation of gluten-free dishes.
Do you have an allergy?
Please always let us know that you have an allergy when you make your request, so that our kitchen can advise you properly and ensure that you or your children only get the food that you are allowed to eat.
Often the best thing is to bring your own products that you are used to. You are welcome to store them with us.
On Monday evening our kitchen rests!
Therefore, here are some personal recommendations.
We recommend dining everywhere as early as around 18:00-18:30. Later it gets quite crowded everywhere and possibly a bit chaotic.
A hint that you are Glinzhof guests can make a reservation easier 🙂

Want a recipe?
In South Tyrol, the potato-beef gröstl is a popular dish.
The South Tyrolean farmer’s gröstl is hearty, hearty, delicious and actually a typical winter dish. But it is also often served in summer at alpine huts, mountain inns or Buschenschänken. The Gröstl greets the table in a hot pan, usually adorned with a fried egg on top of the dish.
The spicy farmer’s gröstl deserves to be mentioned again and again. A Gröstl can be prepared in many different ways, the typical ingredients are potatoes, boiled beef and onions. But basically a Gröstl is also an excellent way to use up leftovers.
Here is the original recipe for about 4 people:
- 500g waxy potatoes
- 1 onion
- a little oil
- 400g cooked beef shoulder
- 1 bay leaf
- 1/8 l meat soup
Steam the potatoes with the skin on, peel and leave to cool. Cut the potatoes and the cooked beef into even, small slices. Finely dice the onions and fry them. Add the potatoes, season with salt, pepper, marjoram and bay leaf and fry everything well. Add the sliced meat, pour in some hot meat soup, toss well and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
The Gröstl can be served with bacon and cabbage salad or with a fried egg.
A farm holiday is the best opportunity to taste fresh and delicious local produce every day. Experience at first hand how we obtain our products from our own and regional agriculture, use them directly or process them with care into first-class delicacies.
The natural raw materials come from our fields, are harvested by us and processed by the farmer’s wife with much love and according to South Tyrolean tradition into homemade quality products.
Whether fresh eggs, a variety of herbs from our herb garden, fruit ripe for harvesting and fresh vegetables – with us you only get the best that the farm has to offer.

The Puster Valley
The broad, flat valley floor, with steep green slopes rising up from its sides – it is an unusual, almost bizarre sight that can be seen in many parts of the Puster Valley. At the same time, it exudes a fairytale atmosphere. The region encompasses a variety of landscapes characterized by all kinds of shades of green: lush meadows dotted with colorful spots, deep dark coniferous forests, gentle hills that shimmer golden in the sunlight, the muted color of the mountain pines on bare rock, the intense tone of the first grasses , struggling through the snow cover.
Despite the altitude and the notorious cold compared to the warmer regions of South Tyrol, old farms have been crouching in the pastures and fields for a long time and some are still inhabited today: a visit to the Dietenheim Museum of Local History shows how challenging life in the Bergen used to be and what hardships people had to struggle with every day. Today, on the other hand, you can enjoy rural life without having to forfeit comfort. But those who prefer something a little more rustic will also be happy here: for the adventurous, spending the night in a refuge is the absolute highlight. Experience nature up close, the wooden wall behind you, a glass in your hand, while the red sun sinks behind the mountain peaks. A unique little moment in which all the beauty of this country can be felt.
The Rienz, which flows through the Pustertal, is nourished from many sides by smaller streams: the valleys in the east of South Tyrol are widely branched. And behind every hill, it seems, lies a new natural wonder. The Ahrntal with its proud stone guards.
Anterselva with the internationally renowned winter sports center, where mainly biathlon races are held. The Pragser Tal, crowned at the end by the pearl of the Dolomites. The little town of Bruneck with its rich cultural activities. San Candido with its Romanesque collegiate church.
The Pustertal itself, with its narrow valley entrance, is somewhat isolated from the rest of the country. The dialect varies with every bend in the river, just like the traditional customs with their small rituals and big festivals. And the open nature of the people invites everyone to share these traditions with them.
Some places in the Pustertal have risen to global fame. The Pragser Wildsee, surrounded by mighty rocks and wooded slopes, has already been the setting for film and television. Its paranormal deep green color enchants countless visitors from all parts of the world every year.
The three peaks, on the other hand, with their characteristic shape protrude like three fingers from the rocky subsoil. The imposing formation is a perfect subject for nature photographers. When the sparkling Milky Way unfolds above it at night, it covers the place with its soft glow and unites with the three black silhouettes to form a magical ensemble.
The opportunities to make a day unforgettable are as numerous as the side arms of the Puster Valley. Hiking and cycling trails for the whole family lead along the rivers and streams into all sorts of hidden nooks and crannies and to places where the world suddenly seems far away.
A particularly idiosyncratic view of the country is revealed from other angles: those who take on the icy waters on white water rafting or even challenge gravity with a paraglider get to know the elements that together built this beautiful landscape.
When the ground remains far below, the rock face in front of you, nothing above you but the sky, then you can experience the boundless freedom that lies deep within all of us. You can feel who is flying over icy pistes, taking the last step to the summit or simply pausing in front of the monumental testimony of natural forces and taking in the breathtaking panorama. Here man and nature become one.
Loneliness and hustle and bustle, snow-covered mountain peaks and colorful meadows: the Pustertal is a fairy tale come true.
