Holiday Areas in Venosta Valley

The Val Venosta valley systems boast two striking landmarks: “King” Ortles/Ortler, at 3,905 metres (12,812 ft) altitude, the highest mountain in South Tyrol and indeed of the entire Eastern Alps, and the church steeple protruding from the surface of Resia Lake. Orchards fill the broad floor of the central valley with vineyards occupying the south-facing mountainside, while at medium altitude apricots, strawberries and, even higher, vegetables are cultivated.

Centuries-old trails along old irrigation channels, Alpine and mountain bike trails wind across the diverse cultivated landscape, dotted with small Romanesque churches, medieval castles and monasteries. The “Vinschger”, as the valley inhabitants are called, are highly regarded for their creativity and imagination. It is no coincidence that most of South Tyrol’s artists and architects come from the western half of the region.
