Val Pusteria

The “Green Valley” in the east of South Tyrol extends from the Rio Pusteria Fortress and the Dolomites Region Plan de Corones to Lienz

While gentle Alpine meadows, forests and sun-drenched high plateaus characterise the Lower Val Pusteria, the Upper Val Pusteria mainly attracts attention by the rough pinnacles of the Sesto Dolomites, above all the Three Peaks of Lavaredo. Natural highlights such as Lake Braies and Lake Anterselva - famous beyond the borders - bring numerous visitors in this part of the Val Pusteria

Sesto Dolomites, Fanes-Senes-Braies, Vedrette di Ries, Puez-Odle - the nature parks in the valley provide for the protection of this unique landscape. Equally varied is the offer in winter: skiing on Mt. Plan de Corones, a ski tour in the Braies Dolomites, snowman building on the Prato Piazza high plateau, or tobogganing on Mt. Croda Rossa, which is part of the famous Sesto Sundial.
