Culture on the mountains

Whether you love hiking, climbing and mountain biking, or whether you prefer snowshoeing or alpine skiing in winter, the breathtaking mountain landscapes and the exquisite home-made typical South Tyrolean courses are not the only things waiting for you at Hühnerspiel Refuge.

Arts and music

Brigitte and Klaus believe their guests should be provided with adequate cultural entertainment. Which is why, in line with the motto “culture on the mountains”, they love organizing a wide range of always new cultural events: concerts of both local folk music and contemporary experimental music, exhibitions, plays and film festivals.

In the past, artists such as Pepi Seidner and Willi Lergetbohrer exhibited their sculptures and pictures on the occasion of the “beständig-veränderlich” event. Sebastian Ploner from Brixen exhibited his watercolour paintings mostly representing images of local everyday life.

Willi Trenkwalder was among the sculptors who were involved in the events organized at Hühnerspiel Refuge the most. Here, he carved a marvellous oversized “Queen of the Mountains” from an over 500-year-old larch trunk and also presented the “Versteckte Eiswelten” photo exhibition.

The theatrical company “HoNiKe” performed the play “Frank and Stein” by Ken Campbell.

The “Film on the mountains” film festival organized at Hühnerspiel Refuge showed short films by several young directors from Germany, Austria and South Tyrol as well.

Some of the most interesting and successful musical events were represented by the concerts of “Gossensasser Tanzlmusig” and “Titla”, a band from Puster Valley, pride and joy of the new so-called South Tyrolean folk music. The “ARWINDA” duo, featuring Lisa Schamberger and Christian Bestle surprised everybody with new rhythmics and melodic tones achieved through accordions, vocals and didgeridoos. The well-known “Bozen Brass Quintett” performed several times at Hühnerspiel Refuge too; a real delight for the ears accomplished through remarkably and notoriously complex, impudent and colourful music.

Hühnerspielhütte Brass Bergkino


Spending the evening at “Bergkino”, the mountain cinema located above Hühnerspiel Refuge, is both unusual and deeply touching. What once used to be the “Hühnerspiel-Spitzlift” seats have been turned into comfortable cinema armchairs. Just like on any ski lift, take your seat, pull down the metal bar and enjoy the show at “Bergkino”, the round-the-clock cinema always providing new and spectacular movies featuring sky lights and nature’s colours on its huge screen.

Scenes are unpredictable and weather-related: lights and shadows can either suddenly or gradually change. Foreground and background landscapes play to depict always new scenarios and images, thus enchanting the viewer and luring him into starting an incredible journey made up of impressive natural light effects.
