Warm and welcoming
Alpine farming and the dairy farming are an integral part of Matsch Valley life.
The Matscher Alm or Matscher Kuhalm (cattle pasture) – as it is known to the Matsch locals – is one of three operational alpine pastures in the Matsch Valley. It is located at 2,045 m and is owned by the Eigenverwaltung Bürgerlicher Nutzungsrechte Matsch, abbreviated to E.B.N.R. Matsch, an association for the self-administration of civil usage rights in the Matsch.
In recent years, the buildings of the Matscher Alm have been extensively renovated and rebuilt and comprise a dairy, living rooms for dairy farmers and shepherds and a milking parlour with holding area. The milk from around 40 milking cows is processed into delicious cheese, cream cheese and butter directly on the farm, where it can also be sampled.
The Matscher Alm farm welcomes hikers, families, cyclists, ski mountaineers and sledgers to enjoy a drink and a bite to eat. We value local production and short distances for our food.
A wonderful view of the mountains opens out from the pasture.
