The Pfandler Alm alpine pasture is located above San Martino in Passiria at Prantach at 1,350 m asl. First Andreas Hofer, along with wife, child and even scrivener, hid at the Kelderer and later on at the Pfandlerhof farm. The French troops had announced that they would invade via Passo Giovo.
On December 11, Hofer and his family sent his family in a hideout at Monteneve, while he walked up the way to the Pfandleralm alpine pasture. On Christmas Eve his family visited him and they stayed for one and a half months. Even if Andreas Hofer was forewarned, he stayed in his hideaway. For this reason he and his family were arrested by the French and Italians on January 28, 1810, and he was taken to Mantova. His family has be released in Bolzano, while he was shot in Mantova in the month of February.
