Vandoies di Sotto

Vandoies di Sotto with its popular local recreation area lies on the Val Pusteria Cycle Path, with Mt. Cima di Terento towering above it

Already several years ago, the local recreation area with playground in the greenery was discovered and awarded Vandoies di Sotto the title of "Child Friendly Municipality". In the main village of the municipality of Vandoies, the houses range from the tennis and football courts at the so-called Gruibnfeld area to the primary school next to the Church of the Annunciation, the town hall and the Via Tulpe road. In Vandoies di Sotto (Niedervintl), the Rio di Fundres flows into the Rienza river, and the Val Pusteria Sun Road branches off here to the high plateau.

Above it rises Mt. Cima di Terento, for which you should be sure-footed. The Fundres Mountains offer even more unique tours, for example to the Ponte di Ghiaccio Mountain Hut at the Ponte di Ghiaccio Pass or to the Gampiel Hut. The trails through the woods around the village, however, invite you to leisurely walks. One of them is the Stöcklhuber Path, which takes you all the way to Maranza, the other is the path at the "Bergl" (literally: small mountain), which tells of the old sagas and legends of the area. Both are refreshing in summer, but especially beautiful in spring, when the meadows are in bloom, and in autumn, when the trees and blueberry bushes change colour.

Vandoies is connected to the railway network: The colourful trains of the Val Pusteria Railway can be seen again and again. Next to it runs the "Pusterbike" Cycle Path, which takes you towards the Rio di Pusteria Reservoir and Bressanone, or in the other direction to the Upper Val Pusteria. So nothing stands in the way of cultural and shopping excursions to Brunico and San Candido, and the trains also carry bicycles. In winter, it's a short drive to the surrounding ski areas - Gitschberg Jochtal, Plose, Plan de Corones - and to the cross-country ski tracks of the Rodengo and Luson Alp.
