A village called Prati exists twice in South Tyrol: near Vizze in the Upper Valle Isarco, and in Tesido in the upper part of the Val Pusteria, an idyllic spot at the beginning of the Val Casies. Here you don't have to worry about the activities on offer, they start right on the doorstep. Behind the roofs of Prati rise the mountains - the village nestles on the slope at the entrance to the Casies Valley.
The Pyramids Kneipp Path near Prati - known as Pyramiden Kneippweg - is a special wellness highlight. The holistic naturopathy was developed 100 years ago by Dr. Sebastian Kneipp: The cold water affects the vegetative nervous system and the blood vessels and strengthens both. The excursion can be started at the car park or at the information office of Prati di Tesido (Taistner Wiesen), and then leads past the Rio Rudlbach and the Leonardo Bridge through the fresh summer forest. After treading water, simply wipe off the water and stop if you feel very cold.
Prati also offers the connection to the Casies Valley Path, which runs to the idyllic end of the valley, a very special tour tip in a very special valley. In winter, the Casies cross-country ski tracks are connected to Dolomiti Nordicski. This is Europe's largest cross-country skiing carousel with about 1,300 km of tracks. At the Mudlerhof mountain inn in Tesido, on the other hand, a sledging adventure begins, which can be combined with a cosy stop at the mountain hut of the Tesido Alp.
