Experience area Eisacktal Valley
The Valle Isarco in South Tyrol forms a north-south axis from the Brenner Pass to the capital of the Province of Bolzano. The valley stretches over a length of eighty kilometers and connects different altitudes, so the valley constantly changes its appearance. Numerous side valleys lead to the main valley, such as the Racines and Ridanna valleys, the Fleres Valley and the Vizze Valley near Vipiteno, the Luson Valley near Bressanone and the Funes Valley, the gateway to the Dolomites, near Chiusa. The valley shines with its cultivated landscape and in the south with its almost Mediterranean climate. Thus, in the lower Valle Isarco, a long tradition in the cultivation of fruit, chestnuts and wine has developed. The apple cultivation reaches as far as the Bressanone basin and the surrounding plateaus. Chestnut groves and vineyards shine on the side slopes of the Valle Isarco and on these picturesque sunny terraces lie pretty villages with a lively village life. The three medieval towns of Bressanone, Chiusa and Vipiteno reflect the symbiosis between the land of the Alps and the Italian serenity, both in the urban lifestyle and in the cuisine of the Valle Isarco. The Isarco Valley is synonymous with holidays with family and friends and offers a wide range of outdoor activities, from hiking, cycling, climbing in summer, to skiing, winter hiking and cross-country skiing in winter.
