The municipality of Val di Vizze is located in the homonymous valley and is surrounded by the majestic scenery of the Zillertal Alps.
Val di Fleres is one of the northernmost municipalities of South Tyrol and borders directly on Austria. The 23 km long genuine valley (943 – 3.509 m) stretches from Prati via Fleres di Dentro up to the high Alpine scenery of the Passo di Vizze (2,246 m). Bounded by the mountains of the Tux mountain ridge in the north and the Monti di Fundres in the south, the valley stretches into the heart of the Zillertal Alps, the highest sommit of which is the Gran Pilastro (3.509 m).
Counting some 2,700 inhabitants, it does not only cast a spell over its visitors by its cultural gems such as Moos Caslte, but above all due to the breathtaking scenery in which it is embedded, which is ideal hiking and mountaineering terrain. No matter if you choose the Alta Via Venna alla Gerla, the Rifugio Gran Pilastro or the Passo di Vizze or Passo di Fundres, there are plenty of hiking and mountain biking destination. The so-called Gliedergang at the head of the valley, however, is rich in minerals such as the Blue Beryll, their collection is, however, strictly forbidden.
Magically covered by a snow mantle, this is how Val di Vizze comes up in winter, when 25 km of well-groomed cross-country ski runs snake along the valley. This is also where the popular cross-country ski event “Pfitscher Volkslauf” takes place.
