Fundres is located at the head of the Valle di Fundres, that branches off from the Val Pusteria in the village of Vandoies.
The intact Valle di Fundres is characterised by its homonymous mountains, dominating above all the head of the valley. Driving to Fundres, not only the mountains strike your view, but also the parish church, rising on a rock spur at the entrance of the village. This sacred buliding has already been mentioned in the 11th century, when a bronze dagger has been found in this area.
The overall appearance of the village is, however, characterised by centuries-old farmsteads that are undoubtedly well-cultivated. The inhabitants feel closely connected to the terrain they live in, a fact that is also reflected by the landscape. Even in summertime, climate is highly refreshing, in other words perfect for hiking.
Recommendable is also a guided walk on the Via dei Masi, a combination of culture and nature, that makes you get an insight into the customs and tradition of this genuine valley.
If you would like to go mountaineering, you are in the right place, as the tours start right at your doorstep. A fascinating tour of more days is the Alta Via di Fundres, which stretches from Vipiteno to Falzes, traversing this genuine mountain range.
