Discover the rich local heritage

Seiser Alm and Val Gardena feature a rich cultural heritage. A holiday in the Arbea Apartments in Bulla/Pufels is an unmissable chance to learn more about ancient Ladin traditions, to taste local specialities and to attend various events held throughout the whole year. Nestled between Kastelruth and Ortisei, the Arbea Apartments are a great starting point for the exploration of small but precious cultural treasures scattered in the surroundings. Walking by artisans’ workshops or visiting a Christmas market you will certainly come across local handicrafts passed down through generations, such as wood carving and wood painting.

To learn more, look in on the studio SilviArt of Silvia Delago or head towards the Museum of Val Gardena in Ortisei, that offers an interesting immersion into the Ladin culture. At the same time, the best way to explore the geological history of the area is the Geotrail of Bulla/Pufels. While the mills of Bulla/Pufels are the characteristic witnesses of its rural past, when today’s green meadows were golden expanses of barley, rye and oats. Visit them with one of guided tours organized by the tourist board of Val Gardena and don’t miss other cultural experiences of the project Val Gardena Active, including mini-courses of the Ladin language and cuisine, visits to farms and artisans’ workshops, as well as various guided tours dedicated to the culture of the Gardena valley. And, of course, both Kastelruth and Val Gardena can’t be imagined without music and singing, especially when you are guests of the Delago-Goller family
