South Tyrol is special. A melting pot of cultures and contrasts. Germans, Italians and Ladinians live side by side and together here. The landscape with Mediterranean influences contributes to the “La Dolce Vita“ lifestyle. Distinctive Alps, the massive Dolomites between lakes, orchards and vineyards. A Mecca between limestone giants and alpine pastures especially for mountain sport fans.
Situated in the east of South Tyrol, the Pustertal Valley stretches along the river Rienz from the east to the west between Brixen and Lienz. Most of the valley is in South Tyrol, but a smaller section is in Austria’s East Tyrol.
