Holidays with all the family in the Antholz Valley: fascinating histories and unspoilt nature.
Mystical and partly overgrown with green moss.
High up yet somewhat hidden, surrounded by dark green spruce forests, it bears silent witness to a bygone era: the ruined Altrasen castle. Its mystical walls, partly overgrown with green moss, evoke memories of a magnificent structure. The view down into the village gives you an idea of the noble life that was led up here. But be careful – unless you are accompanied by a mini nature detective who knows how to chase off a dragon…
Watch, creep about and read tracks with the nature detectives
The Familix Nature programme teaches children the rules of being in the forest, how to read the tracks of wild animals and which herbs are edible. And even how to deal with dragons.
The castle ruins offer a welcome to guests at the entrance to the valley, and the wonderful Antholz Valley has much more to offer. What about a waterfall with a view over the valley, for example? Or the third largest mountain lake in South Tyrol, Lake Antholz?
And the Rasener Möser biotope is also a must-see. A marsh area and nature reserve, it is home to all sorts of rare animals and plants. Children of all ages can experience a unique natural world here.
At the very end of the Antholz Valley, almost in Austria, is the biathlon centre and the well-known South Tyrol Arena. The Biathlon World Cup is held here every year and it will play host to the 2020 World Championships and even the 2026 Winter Olympics!
And there’s no need to mention the rustic dairy huts with their view of the Rieserferner Group and the Dolomites!
