More about the history of the Farm Zerund.

A farm with family tradition and love for agriculture. You can feel this passion everywhere.

On our farm we live on dairy and livestock farming and – as a side business – we offer farm holidays. We have an active farm in Castelrotto, where you may even help us with the daily farm work. So you and your kids during your farm holidays in the Dolomites can get a view into our daily lives and also learn some interesting things about farming.
The wonderful views you will be able to enjoy during your farm holiday from the farm Zerund on the Alpe di Siusi are overwhelming:

• To the West and North you see from the Corno del Renon to the Isarco Valley, the villages Latzfons and Laion, a wonderful view of the Alps of Latzfons and Villandro and the Cross of Latzfons.
• In the East you see the striking peaks of the Odle in the Funes Valley.
• To the South you will discover the forest landscape with spruce and pine, crossed by many hiking trails. For example, the trail to “Marinzenalm” (1 hour), to the refuge “Schafstall” (1 hour), to Mount “Bullaccia” on the Alpe di Siusi (2.5 hours), to the nearby village of S. Michele (½ hours) or to the sunny village of S. Valentino (¾ hour) – all accessible from the farm Zerund in Castelrotto.

Farm history

Our farm was first mentioned in 1502. The first owner’s name was Ulrich Dosserunder. The farm house, called “Zerundt”, consisted of barns and stables, herb garden, fields, meadows and forests. Over the years, up to today the farm changed the owner 18 times. In March 2006, we – Walter and Judith – took over the farm from our father Richard and are now owners of the farm. In 2005 the farm was renovated. We refurbished the old apartments and transformed them into cosy and modern accommodations with one or two bedrooms. Furthermore, we built an inviting lounge and a playroom for our young guests.

Today’s farm includes 9 hectares meadows and 4 hectares forest, a farm garden, 40 cattle, calves, dogs, cats, and several other small animals (rabbits, goats). On the Alpe di Siusi we have leased 10 hectares of meadows that are mowed each year in late July. Our farm is located above Castelrotto (“Oberdorf”) about 2.3 km from the centre and at 1,200 m above sea level. We are surrounded by a lovely landscape and enjoy a very quiet location in the midst of meadows and forests – an ideal starting point for hikes.


The four vacation apartments offer wonderful free space for you and your family and are equipped with modern comfort.
