South Tyrol is full of contrasts. In the Dolomites, you’ll be amazed by the finest natural highlights all year round. Discover the jewel of Val Gardena – you’re not only there, you’re in the heart of it.
One of the most famous holiday regions in the Dolomites welcomes both skiing stars and climbing pioneers. The impressive Sellastock, Langkofel and Plattkofel mountains hold a magical appeal for outdoor enthusiasts and sports lovers. Everyone can discover the natural beauties of the World Heritage Site in a variety of ways.
The 25 kilometre side valley is shaped by the Puez Geisler Natural Park and the mighty mountain giants with their picturesque pastures. In 2009, the region and its natural beauty were recognised by UNESCO and awarded the title of World Heritage Site. Guests can experience wonderful trails, extensive panoramas and bike and trekking tours in summer.
In winter, a ski holiday in the Dolomites means fun on the slopes and enjoying nature!
The Val Gardena/Seiser Alm ski region is part of the Dolomiti Superski, a network of 12 ski regions in the Dolomites. “La Longia” is the longest slope in South Tyrol and will get the hearts of skiers and snowboarders racing along a length of more 10 km. Another tip for an unforgettable experience is the Sellaronda ski carousel with its circular route on skis around the Sella group.
The historic and traditional communes of St. Ulrich, St. Christine and Wolkenstein are the ideal places to wander and explore. Thanks to their geographic location, 3 languages are still spoken here today. As well as Italian and German, Ladin is the daily language and is still taught in schools. The tradition of wood carving is celebrated here and St. Ulrich became known for the Val Gardena craft. You’ll also found the loveliest shopping street in the Dolomites here with its numerous restaurants, cafes and pretty boutiques.
Under the motto “Respect the Dolomites”, the towns and villages in Val Gardena are making their residents and guests aware of the importance of sustainability and protecting the environment. Events and initiatives on respecting the mountains, mobility, energy management, alpine farming and waste management underline the importance of respecting the Dolomites.
We at Almliesl would like to say THANK YOU! That’s “truly real!”.
