The small hamlet of Elle on the slope above the Brunico valley basin is a panoramic place and starting point for hikes

On the way into the Val Badia, behind Mantana, the slopes rise up to the Luson Mountains: They are known for beautiful places like the Luson Alp and the Rodengo Alp towards the Valle Isarco. On its slope, however, there are also two districts of the municipality of San Lorenzo di Sebato: Onies and Elle, which lies at an altitude of more than 1,300 m, a quiet place for summer days in clear mountain air, autumn impressions before the first snow, and sledging adventures in winter.

The few farms and houses between the meadows and forests are guarded by the small church. It dates back to 1483 AD and was dedicated to St. John and St. Paul - in the course of time, the village centre spread out around it as it presents itself today. On the church façade you can see a beautiful sundial with Gothic numerals, created in 1618, which gives the building its special charm.

Elle (Ellen) is located on Mt. Elle above the Brunico valley basin and offers a beautiful view on the valley. Summer hikes in the freshness that only the mountains can offer take you via the Walder Mountain Hut and further to the timberline below the Giogo d'Asta to the lookout point Cima Lasta known as Ellener Kreuz. You can also reach Mt. Giogo d'Asta itself - alternatively by MTB, or in winter with snowshoes or touring skis. With one of the toboggan runs in the Val Pusteria, which runs for 3 km from the Hosp Hut to Elle, your sledging adventure begins right on the doorstep.
