Top things to do in Val Pusteria / Puster Valley

365 days of culture & nature experience

Not only Brunico, the lively main city of Val Pusteria, but also the episcopal town Bressanone, urban centre of Valle Isarco, are only a short and easy car trip from San Sigismondo. Also only a stone’s throw from here: the skiing and hiking area Plan de Corones and the famous Dolomites region Tre Cime.

Look forward to a varied program filled with activities in culture, sports and nature, events and innumerable possibilities for leisure activities – in both summer and winter (and obviously in spring and fall as well).
