Muthöfe farmsteads

The so called “Muthöfe” are farms located at an altitude of 1,200 m a.s.l. high above the village of Tirolo.

The Muthöfe farms are considered to be the oldest farmsteads of Merano and surroundings and probably also of all over South Tyrol. These farmsteads comprise five farms, which hang on to the slopes of Monte Muta: Oberegghof, Hochmuth, Mittermuth, Untermuth and Talbauer (former "rote burggraven").

These farms were first mentioned in written documents around 1285. At that time, alpine pastures at higher altitudes were still farmed all year round. At the Leiteralm alpine pasture there are two of these ancient buildings. You can see the Muthöfe farmsteads from the valley - today they are managed by local mountain farmers and proprietors.

Until lately there was no access road to the Muthöfe farms. Only a funicular provided for the transport of groceries and other vital items. Today there is a road to the ancient mountain farms and they are also accessible via a hiking path, which is also part of the Alta Via of Merano (Merano High Path). This well-marked path takes you past every single farm.
