San Candido

At the foot of the Monte Baranci in the Dolomites, there is the charming market town of San Candido.

The market place San Candido has developed out of a Celtic settlement that dates back to the 4th century BC. It stretches from 1.113 to 3,145 m and comprises the villages of San Candido, Prato Drava and Versciaco. San Candido, or Innichen, in german, offers a natural landscape that is ideal for several outdoor activities the whole year round, not only in the Tre Cime - Dolomiti di Sesto ski carousel. The village is overtowered by the striking Baranci mountain range that can also be admired when you walk across the pedestrian zone of San Candido.

Cross-country skiers can look forward to 200 km of ski slopes, while those who prefer hiking can walk along a trail network of more than 70 km. And in the evening skiers, snowboarders, hikers and cross-country skiers can meet in one of the cosy mountain huts.

Particularly worth seeing is the collegiate church of San Candido, one of the most important Romanesque sacral buildings in the Eastern Alps, as well as the associated collegiate museum with its 7 showrooms. We also recommend a detour to the Dolomythos Museum, which provides information about the origin of the Dolomites World Heritage Site.

Dolomiti Balloonfestival, balloon glowing, International Ice Sculpture Festival, a walk to the Rif. Baranci or a visit to the village festival, in San Candido there is something for every taste.
