Schnalstal Valley

Holidays below the highest glaciers of the Eastern Alps

The Schnalstal Valley is a wild and unspoiled valley that extends from the village of Naturno/Naturns with its fruit orchards and vineyards beneath Juval Castle to the picturesque and imposing glaciers at the valley head. The Schnalstal Valley has few local inhabitants but is home to numerous rare Alpine animals, making it the perfect location for a peaceful holiday in nature, below the high glaciers and peaks of the Texelgruppe mountain range. On the way to Mount Similaun is the discovery place of the famous 5000-year old ice mummy, Oetzi. The Schnalstal Valley is also a popular destination for winter sports. Ski enthusiasts will find glacier slopes that remain open until may.

The Schnalstal Valley stretches from apple orchards at the valley’s entrance to the mighty glaciers at the head of the valley. Between them, steep mountains project into the sky. Dense larch forests extend up to 2,600m a.s.l.; centuries-old farmhouses bear witness to the formerly meager everyday rural life in this secluded valley. Only upon construction of the Schnalstal Glacier Cable Car in 1972 did modern tourism arrive in the area.

To its 1,300 inhabitants, Schnalstal Valley includes the sunny village of Monte S. Caterina/Katharinaberg, the Pfossental Valley and the village of Certosa/Karthaus in a former convent, the peaceful village of Madonna di Senales/Unser Frau, the hamlet of Vernago/Vernagt and the ski village of Maso Corto/Kurzras. Schnalstal Valley is the least populated valley in South Tyrol. It offers peace and originality in a high alpine mountain landscape.

⛰ Das Naturdenkmal Lazaun - Hochebene ist geprägt von der Kraft der Gletscher, unter anderem einem aktiven Blockferner und einem Hochmoor. Hier trifft man auf eine ganz eigene alpine Flora, beispielsweise den kleinsten Baum der Welt, die Kraut-Weide (Salix herbacea). Aber auch die Fauna bietet dem aufmerksamen Beobachter mit etwas Glück Raritäten. Hier oben leben neben zahlreichen Murmeltieren auch Stein- und Schneehühner.
TIPP: jeden Mittwoch Lazaunwanderung mit unserem Wanderführer Richard. Anmeldung: https://bit.ly/2yT73Ft

🌲 L’Altopiano di Lazaun - Monumento naturale della Provincia, è influenzato dall’energia del ghiacciaio e da una torbiera paludosa di alta quota. Qui troviamo una vegetazione alpina molto particolare come ad esempio il salice nano (l’albero più piccolo del mondo) e con un pizzico di fortuna gli escursionisti attenti possono scorgere anche animali rari come marmotte, coturnici e pernici bianche...
CONSIGLIO: ogni Mercoledi escursione Lazaun con la ns guida Richard. Inscrizione: https://bit.ly/3d14JAz https://www.merano-suedtirol.it/de/schnalstal.html
