The small town of Spondigna/Spondinig lies at the crossroad between the Venosta Valley state road and the start of the Stelvio Pass Road
. Here, at the beginning of the Ortles region and the Stelvio National Park
, is the Hotel Posta
, the principal post station back in the days of the old Habsburg monarchy.
For visitors doing a combination of train and bike
, Spondigna is the ideal point of departure for some of the best cycling excursions in the Val Venosta. The Prato allo Stelvio/Prad am Stiflserjoch railway station is located at a distance of about a kilometer from the entrance of the Stelvio National Park. The Sonnensteig Trail is also very popular with hikers,
leading from Spondigna to Burgusio /Burgeis in the Upper Venosta Valley
, passing through the high farms in Sluderno/Schluderns along the way.
