Famous for its breathtaking landscapes, enchanting villages, and opportunities for outdoor recreation all year round, it manages to make the hearts of hikers and mountaineers, the hearts of sportsmen, the hearts of culture and history enthusiasts beat faster.

Go mountain biking.

The valley has a network of mountain bike trails, which allow you to explore the scenic beauty of the region on two wheels. The Alta Pusteria Cycle Path from Rio di Pusteria to Lienz in Austria – a well-organized cycle network with a length of 105 km – allows for wonderful tours for everyone. Plus there are fantastic possibilities with no significant climbs or even for the more adventurous amongst us. The Enduro, the evolution of the mountain bike, is a great companion thanks to its weight-optimized frame and light wheels. And for those who like steep uphill support, the e-bike can take you to lofty heights and rustic mountain pastures.

Our choice Hotel Adler Suite & Stube.

Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or are looking for a peaceful escape into nature, the Val Pusteria offers a wealth of experiences that will linger in your soul.
Our best “interpreter” of these emotions is the Hotel Adler, a place to feel at home, free and carefree, inspired by the tradition that the Pircher family lives for the passion of hospitality with a sense of sustainability, naturalness, and territory. A house that writes 400 years of history, with high-quality cuisine, where Chef Helene Markart, landlady, loves the old recipes of the place and continuously creates innovative and captivating dishes. Fresh products from our region are essential for this vital cuisine – eggs from the neighboring farmer, home-smoked speck, seasonal organic vegetables from our garden… because only those who cook with heart can look forward to a fantastic result. This is how several guides such as Gambero Rosso, Gault & Millau, Michelin, Fallstaff, and Monocle tell about us!

    I genuinely admired what you’ve accomplished here. The outline is elegant, your written content fashionable, however, you seem to have acquired some unease about what you wish to present going forward. Undoubtedly, I’ll revisit more often, similar to I have nearly all the time, in case you sustain this ascent.

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with
    your site. It appears as if some of the written text on your content are running off the screen. Can someone
    else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this
    happen before. Thanks
