Holidays in Ultental

Only a few kilometres from Meran, there is the beautiful Ultental valley. It is still as authentic as during our grandparents’ times and fulfils many ideas one can have about the holiday region of South Tyrol.

Winding hiking paths and bike trails across deep forests and flowering Alpine meadows; rustic villages and houses burned brown by the sun that are carefully maintained by their owners; old customs, public holidays with typical costumes, yodellers and “Schuhplattler” dancers… in Ultental, untouched nature, love for traditions and authenticity set the tone.

In parallel with the valley of Vinschgau, the valley of Ulten is 40 km and goes from west to east, following the course of Falschauer river, flowing into Etsch river near Lana. The villages of St. Gertraud, St. Nikolaus, Kuppelwies, St. Walburg and St. Pankraz are located on the narrow valley floor.

Single scattered settlements and traditional farms mainly nestle alongside the sunny slopes of the valley. Also, several artificial lakes characterise the natural scenery, such as the Zoggler reservoir near St. Walburg or Lake Weißbrunn at the end of the valley.
