Travellers flock to the holiday region of Alta Badia, known in German as Hochabtei, for its legendary mountains, world-famous ski slopes, upstanding Ladin inhabitants and gourmet South Tyrolean cuisine.
Alta Badia is defined by the Dolomites. This mountain range has not only created a spectacular landscape, but also offers countless options for enjoying a very special holiday in the great outdoors. Val Badia is not only for sports enthusiasts, though: gourmets and epicures will also be in bliss here. Alta Badia’s many award-winning gourmet restaurants and hotels, the density of which is unique in Europe, make it the premier gourmet region of South Tyrol/Südtirol. Alta Badia is the homeland of the Ladin people. One of things that set the Ladin people apart is their language: they have spoken Ladin since Roman times. Other hallmarks of Ladin culture, which is an integral part of holidays in Val Badia, include a strong sense of tradition, striking efficiency, a keen sense of community, long established and environmentally friendly architecture and delicious, hearty food.
