Ried di Lagundo

Ried lies in the fertile orchards of the Adige Valley and, with Rio Lagundo above it, it is one of the enclaves in South Tyrol

Ried is the name of several villages in South Tyrol. It is a common and much-heard name, as Ried also means marshy terrain, low moor or clearing area. There is a Ried near Vipiteno in the Upper Valle Isarco, one in the Val Passiria valley, Ried near Laion in the Valle Isarco and the Monguelfo Ried in the Val Pusteria valley. In addition, Ried is a hamlet in the municipality of Lagundo, which, together with the idyllic hamlet of Rio Lagundo above it, is located in a unique position.

The main village of Lagundo is quite far away, about 8 kilometres: The municipalities of Parcines and Plaus spread out around Ried in the Adige Valley. Ried and Rio Lagundo are located separated from the rest of the municipality on the Val Venosta Monte Tramontana. Another well-known enclave is Anterivo in the south of the country, a small South Tyrolean village on Trentino territory.

The apple trees exude a sweet fragrance at the time of blossoming and form a wonderful backdrop for hikes on the valley floor. The Val Venosta Cycle Path also runs along the Adige River to Merano and then on to Bolzano, where the South Tyrolean cycle path network spreads out in all directions and reaches the Upper Val Pusteria, the Brennero Pass and Lake Caldaro. Near Ried di Lagundo there is a stop of the Val Venosta Railway as well as the Rio Lagundo Cable Car, which takes you to the mountain village at 800 m a.s.l., the starting point of beautiful hikes.
