Pfitsch: a perfect mountain scenery
Lovers of the mountains will surely be sold on the wonderful natural scenery around the small village at the northern border of South Tyrol.
Many 3,000 meter high peaks and several mighty glaciers encircle Pfitsch like a protecting wall.
Therefore, it is obvious that it is an ideal hiking area. There are available not only pleasant tours from hut to hut, but also many challenging alpine path and adventurous climbing routes and fixed-rope routes, for example to the well-known 3,500 meters high peak of the Hochfeiler.
The name Pfitsch refers to a village and to the whole valley, which branches off near Sterzing. Parts of the municipality are the principal town Wiesen at the entrance of the valley and the ancient parts of the village Flains, Tulfer and Kematen.
