The village of Resia, where the famous Lake Resia Run takes place every year, welcomes you in the holiday destination South Tyrol

Note: From the end of March to June 2024, the water level of Lake Resia will be drastically lowered in order to relocate and secure the state highway and bicycle path.

As soon as you cross the border from the Tyrolean Upper Inn Valley into South Tyrol and Italy, the village of Resia (Reschen) comes into view. It is less than a kilometre from the Resia Pass to South Tyrol's largest lake. Holiday feelings arise when looking at Lake Resia: With its beautiful lake promenade it is considered the landmark of the village. Hikers and cyclists crowd its shores and sailors and surfers can be seen on the water. The lake at an altitude of 1,500 m does not invite to take a swim, even in summer, although there are still a few brave ones who dare to jump in.

Around the St. Sebastian Church the buildings of the old village stretch, below the fire station, some shops and the club house of the new village are located. The gentle meadows into the Val di Roia tell of the dairy and livestock farming that still characterises the area. From there, the hiking paths lead to the heights of Mt. Piz Clopai, a western spur of the Oetztal Alps, and on the other side of the valley to Mt. Piz Lad (2,809 m a.s.l.) on the Swiss border. There you can find the Boundary Stone on the border between Switzerland, Italy and Austria, the "Dreiländerstein".

There are also many possibilities in winter: The Belpiano-Malga San Valentino Skiing Area between Lake Resia and the Val di Roia valley is right on the doorstep, and just around the corner, so to speak, a few hundred metres north of the Resia Pass, is the Austrian ski paradise of Nauders. The Three Country track, one of the cross-country ski tracks in the Val Venosta, takes you to the state border. And when evening falls over Resia, the Vallierteck sledge run above the village is lit up.
