Passeiertal Valley

Holidays in a pristine valley north of the spa town of Merano

The wild and pristine Val Passiria/Passeiertal Valley is the birthplace of the local hero Andreas Hofer, the resistance fighter who dared to challenge Napoleon. With its diverse landscape, it is an ideal holiday destination for hiking enthusiasts and families during summer. The hiking routes range from easy walks along the ancient waterways such as the Riffianer Waalweg trail to demanding tours leading up to the high peaks of the Texelgruppe Nature Park. Cyclists will find challenging routes on the mountain roads to Timmelsjoch or Jaufenpass mountain passes. In winter, the rural village of Plan/Pfelders turns into a cosy ski area for families, closed to public traffic. The village of Corvara/Rabenstein offers a large ice-climbing tower and the village of Valtina/Walten a charming cross-country run.
