Surrounded by rustic alpine huts, picturesque villages and ancient traditions, you will surely forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life, deeply immersing yourself into the South Tyrolean mountain landscape.

Gsies is a 20 km long side valley of the Pustertal, which branches near the village Welsberg, lying between the foothills of the Rieserferner Group and the Defregger Alps. A well-constructed road leads through the valley, which is relatively broad and very sunny, passing by the villages Pichl, St. Martin and St. Magdalena.

The maybe most famous son of Gsies is Joachim Haspinger, the pugnacious Capuchin monk and freedom fighter. He fought against France and Bavaria together with Andreas Hofer and the Tyrolean in 1809.

Life and holidays are particularly cosy in the valley of Gsies, there is much space for regeneration, a beautiful natural landscape, good air and a pristine landscape with many idyllic farms. The various hotels, the hearty hospitality by the hosts and the excellent South Tyrolean cuisine complete the image of a small but wonderful holiday destination.
