Ski and hiker paradise Sexten
Sexten has charm. The village in the eastern end of South Tyrol has been a renowned holiday resort for already more than 100 years.
The surrounding mountain scenery – the famous Dolomites – is doubtlessly the most important reason for its popularity among guests from all over the world.
The “Drei Zinnen” (Three Peaks of Lavaredo) probably are the most famous mountains of the Dolomites. And they are only a few steps away from Sexten, therefore meeting point for many ambitious climbers and hikers. But also other mountain tops like Cristallo, Civetta and Monte Pelmo are reachable from the “base camp” Sexten.
But not only extreme mountaineers and venturous climbers feel good here. If you are just looking for pure relaxation, you will surely enjoy the modern wellness areas provided by many luxurious hotels in Sexten. If you, however, would like to experience untouched nature and fresh mountain air, you are here right as well.
In winter, the region around Sexten is also a little paradise for skiers, alpine skiers, cross-country skiers and other kinds of winter sportsmen. In the skiing areas of Helm and Haunold, snow is guaranteed throughout the winter season, alternatively there is also a very large ski carousel around nearby Cortina.
