The Val Sarentino stretches on a length of 50 km from Bolzano to the Passo di Pennes

Val Sarentino is a municipality in the north of Bolzano that is run through by the Talvera river and is located in the homonymous valley. Its main village Sarentino and its 27 component localities (Sonvigo, Acereto, Campolasta, Prati, Pennes di Fuori, Spessa, Valdurna, Montessa, Campo di Ronco, Gentersberg, Collerno, Pennes di Dentro, Kandelsberg, Mules, Vangabassa, Villa, Riodeserto, Pozza, Corvara, San Martino, Montenovale, Stetto, Trina, Boscoriva, Selva di Formes, Riobianco, Lana al Vento), compose largest municipality of South Tyrol as far as surface area is concerned.

There are two main access roads leading to the Val Sarentino: on the one hand you can reach it from the valley basin of Bolzano, across the gorge of Sarentino, on the other hand from Vipiteno, going across the Passo Pennes. The latter is, however, closed in winter months and is particularly popular in summer months. A further access road connects the valley to the Renon.

Still today the municipality is of mainly rural nature, still today the traditions have an important role to play. What makes the municipality particularly popular are its handicrafts and the quill embroidery. In the upper Val Sarentino, there is the Reinswald skiing area, which is connected to the Ortles ski arena, providing fun on the slopes and a pleasant time in the mountain huts. Also in summer the fabulous mountain landscape of the Sarentino Alps attracts a large number of people from all over.
