Villnösser Tal valleyVillnösser Tal valley  
The Odle mountains protrude sublimely into the heavens at the end of the valley in Villnöss. Their uniqueness and beauty of the Dolomites led to their designation as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. Due to their high calcium content, the Dolomites are often referred to as the “pale mountains.” The Villnösser mountain world, with its substantial network of trails, is well known and appreciated by mountain lovers around the world. Nature enthusiasts and families will love hiking the remote and lush green high-Alpine meadows whilst enjoying spectacular views and delicious food & drink from countless Alpine huts.

Valley inhabitants value keeping up old traditions and customs. Guests can experience the rural culture of the Villnösser Tal valley during countless events including music and village festivals, parades and processions with traditional dress, the ceremony of cow herding to higher altitudes, and of course the South Tyrolean Speck Festival, which every year is a welcome event for all ages.
