Venosta Valley - the sun-kissed valley
in South Tyrol

Vinschgau is a beautiful valley in the western part of the land, extending from Naturns, just a few kilometers from Meran, one of the greenest cities you’ve ever seen – the empress Elisabeth of Austria often came here to stay at a health resort – to the Reschenpass, 80 kilometers from Naturns. The landscape here is dominated by wine- and apple-growing areas, while in higher locations there are more of apricot, berries and vegetables cultivations. The sunbathed place is unique for its great cultural variety and its nearly endless offer in all fields, especially in sports- and leisure time activities. You can have anything here, from walks on hundreds of years old paths through the woods, adventurous trails, alpine mountain paths to, last but not least, many mountain bike trails. There’s no better destination for a varied family holiday or an alternative one for couples.

Just some of the highlights:

  • The monastery “Marienberg” in Mals
  • Castels such as the “Churburg” in Schluderns, or the castel of Kastelbell
  • The lake in Reschen with a church spire looking out of the water, one of the landmarks of the region
  • The Stilfser Joch National Park
  • The medieval city Glurns
  • The Prokulus-church in Naturns and many other churches from various epochs
  • The Messner Mountain Museum
  • The “white gold” - marble from Laas
