The small village of Nove Case, the only district of Rasun-Anterselva in the Val Pusteria valley, is best known for its eponymous inn
Nove Case is the smallest and most unremarkable district of Rasun-Anterselva and the only one that is not located in the Valle di Anterselva, but still directly along the Val Pusteria state road. The Italian name - Nove Case, meaning nine houses - also figuratively represents the small village, although the name has evolved over the centuries from the term "new houses". The name is best known because everyone driving towards the Upper Val Pusteria passes the Neunhäusern inn standing secluded along the road. The bus stop is right there, the other buildings are behind it.
Interestingly, the village of Nove Case - or Neunhäusern, in German language - has a long history: It was mentioned already in the 12th century as Neuenhusen, belonged to Valdaora in the 19th century and then later to the municipality of Rasun-Anterselva. Today it's a great place for hiking. Thanks to the local public transport, you can easily reach all villages, sports facilities and excursion destinations in the Val Pusteria itself and in the neighbouring Anterselva Valley. In Valdaora, the next village along the road, you will find the lifts to the Plan de Corones Skiing Area. The mountain with its museums and the exciting Skyscraper is also a much-visited destination in summer.
On foot you can reach Rasun Nuova Castle from Nove Case, or on the "Pusterbike" Cycle Path on two wheels ride to San Candido in the Upper Val Pusteria, in the other direction to Brunico and at the turn-off to Rasun to the breathtaking Lake Anterselva at the end of the valley. A must!
