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.
