Holidays in Vintl
The village and the landscape are small and unhurried, but also very varied, characterised by stately homes and traditional South Tyrolean farm houses.
Obervintl and Niedervintl are located on the valley floor, the valley of Pfunders with the localities Weitental and Pfunders branches off in northward direction. It leads about 20 kilometres into the mountains of Pfunders. Together with districts and farms nestled on steep slopes, these four villages form the municipality of Vintl. The village has become a small, but wonderful holiday destination for hikers, epicures and nature fans over the years.
From the construction of the bypass of Vintl guiding the traffic around Obervintl and Niedervintl, at the latest, quality of life, hearty hospitality as well as to the protection of nature and environment have been of great importance. Families with kids will feel like in paradise too, in the recreational area of Niedervintl, on the large playground in Obervintl and on the numerous family-friendly hiking paths in the surroundings.
