Gereuther Höfeweg farm trail
The life of mountain farmers at Gereuth near Brixen
Through great efforts, metre by metre, farmers reclaimed the forests on the steep slopes east of Radlsee lake. Over many generations, the farmers cultivated their livelihoods, sometimes living in poor conditions, but always in very close interaction with nature. Each farm has its own history, some of which goes back several centuries. Although the cultivation of the steep slopes is supported by machines nowadays, it is only possible with a basic commitment to this homeland and to working with animals and plants.
