Val Venosta

From apple orchards to glaciers: The 80 km long Val Venosta valley stretches from the surroundings of Merano to the Resia Pass.

In the west of South Tyrol, the Val Venosta stretches from Naturno near Merano to the Resia Pass, where the Adige river rises and a steeple towers in the waters of Lake Resia. Hardly could a holiday area be more varied: Apple orchards and apricot trees on the one side, rough mountain peaks and glaciers on the other side, the most famous of which is of course King Ortles (3,905 m a.s.l.).

On discovery journey in the Stelvio National Park, a walk along the centuries-old Waalweg trails along ancient irrigation canals, a coffee in one of the historic villages of the valley, or a visit to the Monte Maria Monastery - the choice is yours. Snow-sure skiing areas in quiet alpine valleys such as Solda, far away from hustle and bustle, complete the offer in the winter season.
