How to reach the Fischleintal Valley in Sexten

Colourful meadows and rugged rock faces, larch forests, a small stream and behind it the imposing backdrop of the “Sundial of Sexten”, as the peaks all around are called…. The Fischleintal Valley is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful spots in the Dolomites.

Some people simply want to enjoy the picturesque landscape of the Fischleintal Valley in Sexten. For others, the area is a starting point for hikes leading directly into the heart of the Dolomites. For example, the famous Three Peaks can also be reached from here.
