Pfistrad Alm Mountain Museum in S. Leonardo / St. Leonhard
The historic gothic block house is one of the oldest existing wooden structures in South Tyrol. Listed under a historical preservation order in 1982, the old kitchen has an open-hearth fireplace typical of the Alpine mountain regions. In 2000, MuseumPasseier established a small museum illustrating traditional rural life, farming the pastures and the local way of life in medieval times. The exhibition remains open throughout the summer months.
Not far from the animal compound lies the late Baroque Chapel of St. Anna, dating from 1796.
Getting there: starting from the center of San Leonardo/St. Leonhard, pass the church on trail no. 13 or just follow the directions to St. Anna. The ascent along the forest road up a moderately steep slope (difference in altitude: 650m) takes about 2.5 hrs, and is also suited to mountain bikes.
In a side valley at an altitude of 1,350m a.s.l., the mountain pasture is located in a picturesque setting north-east of San Leonardo/St. Leonhard. Open in summer.
From Merano / Meran to the Passeier Valley in direction of Passo Rombo / Passo Giovo until at S. Leonardo / St. Leonhard.
