Situated amidst the beautiful Southern Alpine region of South Tyrol at the borders of Italy, Austria and Switzerland, Venosta Valley is characterized by its unique arid climate, family-friendly ski resorts and by some of the highest mountains in the entire Alps. more
Venosta Valley, the place of discovery of the 5000 year old ice mummy Ötzi, is also a region of numerous hiking trails, paths and serpentines for hikers, Nordic Walkers and mountain bikers. Spectacular mountain ranges such as Ortles-Cevedale, Sesvenna or the Ötztal Alps characterize the steep landscape in South Tyrol, while the valley itself is home to some of the oldest churches and cloisters in Central Europe.

Venosta Valley in South Tyrol was formerly an area of transit between South and North dating from ancient times, and at the same time an area of retreat, due to its high mountains. Therefore many buildings were erected, and very few were destroyed. The biggest trace of the Roman Empire is the ancient Roman trade route Via Claudia Augusta, which leads right through the valley and still exists in places. Today it is a highlight for cyclists, who love to cycle the 80 km downhill route from the Resia/Reschen pass or Malles/Mals to Merano/Meran, passing many historical sites.

 The East-West valley offers visitors an arid mountain side and a green mountain side, each of which offers its own fantastic advantages. Stay informed about weather and temperature conditions through our information services and webcams.
