The South Tyrolean Folklore Museum in Teodone impresses with its beautiful original farmsteads of different South Tyrolean valleys

Teodone (Dietenheim) is located in the valley basin of Brunico, where the Tures and Aurina valley, the upper part of the Val Pusteria and its lower part meet. The rural village awaits you with a special highlight and one of the most beautiful open-air museums in Europe: the South Tyrolean Folklore Museum of Teodone. The centrepiece is the Mair am Hof residence, which features a permanent exhibition on folk piety and folk art and its stately rooms.

In the 19th century, Mary and William Howitt, a well-known English writer couple, used the imposing Baroque building for their summer retreat in the Val Pusteria valley. Today, a farm garden and more than 20 original farmhouses with outbuildings from South Tyrol, some of which date back to the 15th century, await you in the outdoor area. The view from here, on a small hill, reaches all the way to the town of Brunico and the castle that towers majestically above it.

In summer, Teodone is an ideal starting point for a cycle tour along the Valle Aurina Cycle Path: It leads past the Aurino Floodplain Forest Biotope. Once you have arrived in Campo Tures, you can cool off in the local bathing pond. Walking paths, on the other hand, take you via Lunes to Perca, or - in the other direction - to the neighbouring villages of Villa Santa Caterina, San Giorgio and Gais, where you can find the "Baggalocke" bathing pond. In winter, the village, like the other districts of Brunico, is directly connected to the Plan de Corones Skiing Area by the Brunico ski bus.
