Sunny skies and shady woods
walking holidays in South Tyrol
There’s more to a summer break in South Tyrol than the gorgeous natural surroundings our land is renowned for. Besides the obvious merits of its landscape, the Eisacktal valley offers plenty of sunshine, finger-licking cuisine, a rich cultural heritage and a friendly atmosphere.
Chiusa - Eisacktal valleyA tip just for starters? Try the beautiful walk from Gudon/Gufidaun to the Fonteklaus inn – a former manor house tucked away in the forest and affording a spectacular view over the Eisacktal valley. You can get there on path No. 4 (and later paths 4a and 4b), which leads through fragrant woods and flower-dotted meadows. The walk is family-friendly and takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete.
CultureThe town also offers an interesting art scene and cultural landscape, and its summer calendar is packed with events and festivals. These include, to name a few, the Gasslfieber festival on Fridays, with live music and street food, and the long Thursdays in July and August, when shops are open until 10 p.m. and the town’s brightly lit alleys invite you to take a pleasurable stroll.
Next summer, make plans to visit us in South Tyrol – you are in for so much more than just a walking holiday!
