Local history and culture in Venosta Valley
The cultural region of Venosta Valley in South Tyrol is characterized by its lively customs, traditions and also sense of innovation; from the Romanesque “Stairways to Heaven” project through all periods of art up to contemporary architecture, art, theater and music.
Cycling in Venosta Valley
With the period from March to late November offering ideal conditions for bike trips and excursions, the Vinschgau valley boasts the longest bike season in the Alpine region.
Dedicated bike points also provide specialised cycling services, including bike shuttles across the entire valley, guided tours and professional advice. The Vinschgau also
features a wonderfully effective bike hire network, with combined tickets enabling visitors to use public transport, hike bikes and even return them to different locations at no
extra charge. And of course, dedicated bike hotels provide ideal accommodation for cycling enthusiasts.
Tradition and lively customs in the Venosta Valley
Tradition is writ large across the Vinschgau valley, from the vivid and varied to the downright peculiar. For example, Zusslrennen is an ancient custom held in Prad/Prato on Fat Thursday. This sees a masked figure make its way through the village, pursued by farmers and others who make copious amounts of noise in an attempt to waken the grain from its hibernation. In contrast, the Klosn parade in Stilfs/Stelvio is celebrated during Advent with a flurry of colourful costumes and hand-crafted masks.
Mountain-bike tours and trails
Looking for a leisurely ride or endurance biking? With its dense network of tours and trails marked according to a clear, standardised MTB guidance system, the Vinschgau val-ley covers all the bases – and even features GPS detection. Simple tours on forest trails are particularly suitable for beginners, while those that head up into the mountains and include a range of difficulty levels are ideal for experienced riders. Refreshments are also available from a variety of Alpine huts.
Family Holidays in the Venosta Valley
