The Upper Venosta Valley is a true paradise for hikers and alpinists. The Malles trails, for example, offer easy hikes, numerous trails for children, as well as hikes to the alpine pastures. More demanding hikes lead, for example, to the Saldur lakes in Mazia, the Uina gorge in Slingia or the Glorenza mountain. For more experienced mountaineers, excursions to the Palla Bianca in Mazia and to the Ortles in Solda are a must. Plan your route using the interactive map of the Venosta valley.
There is a lot to discover on the Watles mountain: the large lake, about 1,500 sqm for having fun near the mountain station offers great adventure for all children. A wooden raft, a large suspension bridge, several waterfalls, a small stream and an adventure slide are some of the attractions to discover. Parents can enjoy a Kneipp trail, a barefoot trail and large wooden loungers. Archery is also available. Watles Mountain adventure is available daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from mid-June to early November.
The "SportWell" centre in Malles offers the perfect environment to combine sport, recreation and leisure. The indoor pool invites you to swim with a beautiful panoramic view, while the outdoor pool with slide, waterfall and children's pool impresses especially young guests in the summer months. The wide world of saunas offers guests pure relaxation. There are tennis courts in and out-door, a football pitch and a fitness room.
The Vinschgau valley is a cultural and historical region with centuries of history. Numerous churches, castles and monasteries dominate the landscape. Worth seeing are the legendary Tarces Hill, Chur Castle in Sluderno with its extensive armoury, the highest abbey in Europe at Monte Maria in Burgusio and the underwater bell tower of Curon soaring from Lake Resia. Also worth a visit is the Venosta Museum in Sluderno and the Local History Museum in Laudes.
