Ortisei/St. Ulrich in Val Gardena/Gröden is not just famous for its original wood carvings. The filmmaker and mountain pioneer Luis Trenker also helped to put South Tyrol’s Ortisei on the map. Today, the lively village is a place to enjoy a cappuccino in the friendly pedestrian zone and to take a stroll through its local shops. The beauty of the Dolomites, idyllic buildings like the St Jacob’s church, the comfortable cable car lifts, and the down-to-earth people make holidays in Ortisei unforgettable.
