Rubbing shoulders with neighbours Switzerland and Austria, Val Venosta (Vinschgau) is a bountiful region in the western tip of South Tyrol (Alto Adige) famed for apples, ski, glaciers, snow kitting, natural beauty, sunken villages and is arguably a serious foodie capital.
Vinschgau is perhaps most recognized from those iconic images of the sunken church steeple that peaks romantically out of Lake Reschen – an insta must surrounded by the Ortler mountains – the ‘king’ in South Tyrol and the National Park Stilfserjoch.
Apart for stunning beauty of Alto Adige, the Venosta Valley spans from 400 to 4000m in altitude includes the famous Waalwege South Tyrol alpine passage and is a cultural hotbed of times past including the famous Roman route, Via Claudia Augusta that passes through Burgusio (Burgeis).
