Hotel in St. Magdalena in Gsies
The sunny valley extends from Casies Monguelfo for about 18 km towards north.
Val Casies is one of the oldest in South Tyrol. Unspoiled, dense pine forests, picturesque locations and neat farmsteads: This valley offers a wide range of wild and natural beauty that characterizes the entire area.
In spring, summer and autumn, S. Maddalena in Val di Casies turns out to be an ideal starting point for hikers, Nordic Walking and Mountain Bike lovers. The mountain huts in Laxiden and Kaser, with their green pastures and plenty of refreshment, are very popular destinations.
During winter, the ski area's No. 1 in Alto Adige, Plan de Corones, attracts skiers and snowboarders all around the area with its perfectly cured slopes and its modern and fast ski lifts.
Val Casies offers to skiing lovers over 40 km of trails, a real El Dorado for fans of this sport in such close contact with nature!
And how can you say no to a snowshoes stroll, or even a simple walk in the fresh snow?
The proximity to the town of Brunico, the main town of the Val Pusteria, that from Mühlbach, reaches the most eastern part of South Tyrol, makes possible a wonderful visit for a cultural tour or just a shopping trip.
Walking through the historic district of Brunico quickly turns into a cultural and relaxing experience, with its medieval streets, the graceful arches, the cantons, with balconies and colorful frescoes on the walls of houses and on the Unterreiner door, where you can admire the Archbishop Bruno von Kirchberg (founder of Castle Bruneck). A cappuccino break in the square is highly recommended!
In this small city, modernity and tradition, history and present are blend in a harmonious mix.
Along to this essential harmony fit the medieval walls of Castle Bruneck, which soon will become the fifth Messner Mountain Museum, focused on Brunico and on the uses and customs of its inhabitants.
