Whether you prefer short steps (especially for beginners and enjoying walkers) or longer steps (faster), in the Sulden Valley at an altitude of 1.900 m you find the ideal conditions to practise this trend sport, either on the round trail in Sulden or on the different marked paths.
The steep ascents and descents can be avoided by using our lifts and cable railways!

New mobility in South Tyrol: green, comfortable and safe
The influence of a railway line can go well beyond the local economy and culture. It can become a distinguishing feature of the landscape. The stations along the Venosta Valley line were built between 1903 and 1906. These stations can be regarded quite rightly as an integral part of South Tyrol’s cultural heritage.
Their status as such was acknowledged by the Provincial Government’s decision to list these buildings as examples of architectural heritage.
The buildings still capture the elegance of days gone by, while integrating cutting-edge technology: a combination that makes the entire valley even more unique.
