Vinschgau: high alpine tours and sports for all the family
A special landscape and people: there are more artists and architects living here than in other areas of South Tyrol
. Inspired by nature: a broad valley basin with mighty glacial peaks on the horizon, the Vinschgau
wind sweeping the sky, magical light….
Once the barrenest area of South Tyrol
, the Vinschgau
has caught up with other areas through fruit growing and tourism and is today a very popular holiday destination.
Not without reason, as there is a lot on offer here: walks along ancient irrigation channels through orchards, high alpine tours in the Ortler mountain
range or in the Ötztal Alps
, primeval discoveries, mighty fortresses, winter sports fun in the snow at Sulden
or all year round on the Schnalstal
glacier and skiing for all the family in the various smaller ski resorts.
