Val Pusteria

The green valley extends from the Chiusa di Rio Pusteria to Lienz in East Tyrol - not only is the valley famous for the Three Peaks.

While gentle Alpine meadows, forests and sun-drenched high plateaus characterise the lower Val Pusteria (Bassa Pusteria), the Alta Pusteria valley mainly attracts attention by the rough pinnacles of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Photographers, hikers, climbers, excursionists and those who love nature, all of them likewise love this place.

Sesto Dolomites, Fanes-Sennes-Braies, Vedrette di Ries, Puez-Odle... nature parks in Val Pusteria provide for the protection of nature in the valley. One of the jewels included in these parks is the so-called pearl of the Dolomites, the Lago di Braies, as well as Lake Anterselva, ideal excursion destinations for the whole family, especially in high summer. Equally varied is the offer in winter: skiing on Plan de Corones, tobogganing on Croda Rossa, a ski tour in the Braies Dolomites or snwoman building on Prato Piazza, there is always something to do in this fabulous valley.
