Here you will find two of South Tyrol/Südtirol’s most awe-inspiring, iconic and beautiful natural features: the Three Peaks (Drei Zinnen) and the Pragser Wildsee lake are highlights of any holiday in the area of Tre Cime Dolomiti/Drei Zinnen Dolomiten. Local charm and endless possibilities for discovery amidst green Alpine valleys and Dolomite peaks are equally as captivating.
At once gentle and wild, the impressive summits of the Dolomites, the “pale mountains”, tower above Alta Pusteria, inviting you to discover the great outdoors and enjoy your freedom. Let the peaks inspire you as they once inspired Gustav Mahler, who wrote his greatest work, the “Song of the Earth”, in his composer’s cottage in Dobbiaco/Toblach. Nowadays, the holiday region Three Peaks/3 Zinnen in the Dolomites offers a little something for everyone. Marvel at the splendor of the San Candido/Innichen collegiate church or head out to enjoy the extensive Three Peaks/3 Zinnen in the Dolomites ski area, the largest cross-country ski network in Italy featuring 200 km of trails. In summer, a hike round the Three Peaks is as much part of a holiday in the area of Tre Cime Dolomiti as a visit to the Kneipp Active Park in Villabassa/Niederdorf or cultural events such as the Gustav Mahler Music Weeks.
No summer holiday in Alta Pusteria is complete without a hike round the Three Peaks and a visit to the picturesque Pragser Wildsee lake. There are also several other destinations worth adding to your itinerary, such as the Fischleintal valley, the Plätzwiese high plateau, the Toblacher See lake and so much more!
Rudi Reindeer trail or toboggan ride? Wildlife park or Wooded Wonderland? In addition to the numerous family attractions and play areas, children can enjoy all sorts of adventures at the Pragser Wildsee lake or explore the “World of Stones” in the nature parks as a Dolomiti Ranger.
In Alta Pusteria culture lovers can follow in the footsteps of Gustav Mahler, admire the Collegiate Church of San Candido/Innichen – a wonderful Romanesque building – or go on a hike to the Monte Piano open-air museum and take a trip back in time to the First World War.
While on holiday in Alta Pusteria, you can indulge in South Tyrolean specialities such as Tirtlan and Niggilan, as well as the typical barley soup, all sorts of dumplings and Schlutzkrapfen, a filled pasta dish. Foodies will also love the Schaukäserei Drei Zinnen demonstration cheese factory.
