Venosta Valley, in South Tyrol, boasts one of the most diverse cultural and natural landscapes in the Alps. Full of castles and Romanesque churches, this fascinating valley also enjoys a special micro-climate and the highest mountains in the Tyrolean region.

The villages of Castelbello/Kastelbell, Ciardes/Tschars, Laces/Latsch and Silandro/Schlanders, near Merano/Meran, share the spa town’s Mediterranean-Alpine climate and reflect the area’s rich heritage of castles and Renaissance chateaux. Together with Prato allo Stelvio/Prad am Stilfserjoch and the Ortler region, the high Alpine Val Martello with its over 3,900 meter high peaks also includes the Stelvio National Park. The Upper Venosta Valley holiday area is a land of cultural and culinary pleasures featuring an impressive range of Romanesque art treasures, while the Resia Lake area bordering Austria and Switzerland is a hot spot for active vacationers and sports enthusiasts.
