Fiè di Sotto

The centre of the municipality of Fiè allo Sciliar is Fiè di Sotto, with the Church of the Assumption of Mary towering above it

Fiè di Sotto, one of the ten districts of Fiè allo Sciliar, consists of the club house and the town hall, the school and the church, as well as several shopping facilities, and is therefore the main village and administrative centre of the municipality. From here it is only 12 km to Bolzano, but the landscape has already changed completely. The wide open spaces in the valley basin have given way to slopes, meadows and steep rock faces of the peaks of the Dolomites that surround Fiè.

In the centre of the village stands the Assumption of the Virgin Mary Parish Church with its high steeple. It was already mentioned in the 12th century and impresses with its Romanesque crucifix from about 1200 AD, which is one of the oldest of its kind in the country. 400 years later, the church was rebuilt by Leonhard von Völs. He was one of the most famous owners of Presule Castle, Burgrave of Tyrol and involved in the witch trials that came to an end at the castle.

Fiè di Sotto (Untervöls) today lies between the two settlements of Peterbühel and Fiè di Sopra. In the background rises the most famous mountain of South Tyrol, the Sciliar, which invites you with its breathtaking natural landscape to hikes and climbing tours in summer. For a more leisurely walk, we recommend the Fiè Circular Trail. When the first snow falls, the area turns into a winter sports paradise with the Alpe di Siusi Ski Area, the cross-country skiing centre there, the ice skating rink at the Fiè Pond and the toboggan run at the Tuff Mountain Hut.
