  • We are celebrating the Ötzi Discovery Day 2019

    The 19th September 1991 a german couple found on the Val Senales glacier a death body. It turned out that this was a sensational discovery: the Iceman, how he is now called, lived in our region more than 5000 years ago and so he is Europe’s oldest mummy.
    Now the time has come again to celebrate this special day! We invite you to celebrate Ötzi’s “birthday” with a special program:

    free admission, guidet tours during the day and a small birthday gift
    (more information)

    Funivie Ghiacciai Val Senales
    reduction on the regular ticket price.

  • Music & campfire

    How would you like to end the day? Sitting around the campfire, having some cool drinks and listening to music?
    Three passionate musicians from the upper Val Venosta valley are playing and singing self-composed songs in local dialect. The songs and poems describe the life of a travelling folk, the so called “Korrner”. These poor families travelled around the country with their handcarts, working as broom maker, tinker, merchants or musicians.
    The songs where first pubblicated by Luis Stefan Stecher in 1978 and afterwards set to music by Ernst Thoma. The lyrics talk about the hard life of this people, their memory of the land they where forced to leave but also about the great freedom of this travelling folk.

    Ernst Thoma – guitar, voice
    Martha Rauner Stecher – voice
    Hannes Ortler – clarinet, melodica, flute, ocarina

    Already prehistoric people constructed boats to cross rivers and other waters. Beside the rests of wooden canoes, archeologists have also found little boats made from bark. Who knows, maybe they were toys … And you, ready for a trip with the canoe and to make a small wooden boat by yourself?
