The Passeiertal Valley, birthplace of the Tyrolean national hero Andreas Hofer, is one of the most unspoiled and scenically diverse valleys in South Tyrol. Located north of Meran/Merano, the valley winds upwards to the Jaufenpass pass, along an ancient trading route. In the lower part of the valley, between Riffian/Rifiano-Kuens/Caines, St. Martin/S. Martino and the main town of St. Leonhard/S.Leonardo, holidaymakers will find a gentle, expansive valley landscape with Mediterranean flair and top-class hotels. In the upper part of the valley, between Moos/Moso, Stuls/Stulles, Rabenstein/Corvara, Platt/Plata and “soft mobility” Pfelders/Plan, the high alpine landscape rises proudly, offering breath-taking views into the mountains. Protected on its north side, with 300 days of sunshine every year and fascinating climatic contrasts, the Passeiertal Valley is a top destination for athletes, families, gourmets and those seeking rest and relaxation.
