Pfitsch Valley is about 30 km long and branches off near Sterzing in Eisacktal. The municipal area of Pfitsch ranges between 343 m and 3,509 m of altitude. In the north, it is delimited by the Tux ridge in the Zillertal Alps, in the south there are the mountains of Pfunders.

The municipality of Pfitsch includes the principal town Wiesen at the valley entrance as well as the districts St. Jakob and Kematen. Parts of the municipality were already settled in the Roman era. Today, the valley devotes itself to sustainable tourism. Nearly untouched natural landscapes and much silence guarantee best conditions for relaxing holidays.

Worth seeing are the numerous churches and chapels in Pfitsch as well as Moos Castle manor, housing a retirement home today. As well, the valley offers several natural beauties, such as biotopes and the mountain lakes at Pfitscherjoch pass.
