Summer Holidays in Pfitschtal

... at the foot of the 3,000ers

In summer, the entire area around Sterzing become a unique hiking paradise. The Pfitschtal Valley, this pristine natural setting at the foot of 3,000-metre peaks, entices you to experience breathtaking hiking adventures.
Pfitschtal is one of the most original and pristine valleys in South Tyrol. Just 10 minutes’ drive from Sterzing, you will come to the small village of Afens at the entrance to a high valley. Just beyond there, you will discover an idyllic mountain world with astonishing panoramic views. The towering peaks of the Zillertal Alps, including the majestic Hochfeiler (3510 meters), captivate alpinists and hikers alike.
Wide range of hiking opportunities: from Nordic walking along valley- and alpine paths, to challenging tours of the summits, mountain fans always find “just what the doctor ordered”.

Other beautifully situated hiking areas can be found in the neighboring valleys of Ridnaun-, Ratschings- and Pflerschtal (all within a radius of 20 km).
