Ortisei village

In the main village of Ortisei in Val Gardena, the Museum Gherdëina tells about the history and culture of the valley.

Ortisei village (St. Ulrich Dorf) is one of the five districts that make up the municipality of Ortisei. If you turn off the state road, you will come to the centre of the village, which is watched over by the baroque St. Ulrich Church. This is also the start of the valley's most famous shopping street, which, adorned with numerous shops and small cafés, stretches all the way to the St. Anthony Church in the main square. The village is surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Dolomites.

There, on the outskirts of the village, where the lifts start on Mt. Seceda, you can find a highlight for families: the Col de Flam Adventure Park. Right next to it begins the Anna Valley, a cosy excursion destination with a playground and a Kneipp facility. By the way: In the history of Ortisei there were and are some famous citizens, among them the legendary alpinist Luis Trenker, the music producer Giorgio Moroder, and the winter sportswomen Carolina and Isolde Kostner.

In the centre, on the other hand, the Museum Gherdëina, the Museum of the Gardena Valley, invites you on a tour through the valley and its eventful history. Its thematic areas include old wooden toys, unique items and painting from the valley. The latter is also the focus of attention every year in late summer, when Ortisei becomes the centre of Val Gardena's sculptors, photographers, painters and woodturners: Then the Unika Art Fair takes place in Roncadizza.
