Holiday region Pustertal

The Pustertal is one of the most beautiful valleys in South Tyrol and is often referred to as the South Tyrolean green valley. It covers the area between Sexten in Hochpustertal and the bordering Eisacktal in the west of Bruneck. Extensive pastures and meadows, isolated lakes and especially the impressive peaks of the Dolomites represent the absolute highlights during your holidays in the Pustertal.

The unique Drei Zinnen, the nature parks and a breath-taking play of colours: in Pustertal, you are truly in the heart of the Dolomites! Holidays in a hotel in Pustertal offer countless possibilities for extended hikes and more challenging tours, as well as for adrenaline sports such as paragliding and climbing.

The Pustertal has a large selection of possibilities for sports and outdoor activity lovers. During the cold season, lovers of winter sports are offered several skiing areas, suitable for everyone due to various degrees of difficulty.

In summer, on the other hand, a well-established network of hiking paths and climbing routes with various degrees of difficulty covers the entire area of the Pustertal.

Side valleys of Pustertal

The largest side valleys of the Pustertal branch off near Bruneck: Tauferer Ahrntal in the north and Gadertal in the south. The Ahrntal Valley – is surrounded by the mighty glaciers of the Zillertal Alps and the Rieserferner mountains.

On the other hand the valley Gadertal – or Val Badia – is framed by several famous mountain passes leading through the Dolomites. Even strong bikers wax lyrical about the winding routes and streets to Würzjoch or Sellajoch.

In addition to these two relatively long valleys the Pustertal has several other branching off south or north. For example, there is the valley of Antholz, which is known as winter sports resort and above all as biathlon centre. The idyllic Gsies valley is a paradise for hikers and active guests. In Sexten, you can see for instance the famous Three Peaks and Prags Valley enchants many visitors with the emerald green Lake Prags at any season.

Without any doubt, holidays in Pustertal are an unforgettable experience for all ages!
