Voadohuibn Farm Museum

At the Voadohuibn Farm in the Val Casies valley you can learn about the work of farmers through the ages.

In Santa Maddalena (St. Magdalena in Gsies), at 1,520 m a.s.l., stands the farm of the Hoffmann family: It is one of the many beautiful farms that characterise the valley at the foot of the Vedrette di Ries mountain group. There you will find the Voadohuibn Farm Museum - "Bauernhofmuseum Voadohuibn" in German, "Museo Contadino Voadohuibn" in Italian -, which tells the story of the farmers in the valley on 200 sqm, and reports about their daily work in the course of time.

Farm equipment and tools that accompanied and supported farming work in earlier times are exhibited. In a guided tour you will also be shown how flax is spun on old spinning wheels, bread is baked, hay is brought in and Casies specialities are prepared on an open fire. Dairy cows, chickens, rabbits and cats also live on the farm, moreover, tea mixtures, ointments, herbal pillows and juices are produced here. On reservation, delicacies such as Tirtlan of the Val Pusteria valley, barley soup or Schlutzkrapfen are served in the farmhouse parlour after the museum visit.

Not far away, in Madleitn, you will find the smallest show dairy in South Tyrol at the Waldsamerhof farm: Among other things, the famous Val Pusteria grey cheese is produced here. And how to reach the Voadohuibn Farm Museum? In Santa Maddalena, the road through the valley branches off to the left towards the hamlet of Huiben. The Voadohuibn Farm can be found a few hundred metres further on in the Via Berger road no. 41, a car park is available.
