Braies – Villabassa – Dobbiaco – San Candido – Sesto
The Alta Val Pusteria holiday region, with its five municipalities, Sesto, San Candido, Dobbiaco, Villabassa and Braies, is situated in the eastern part of South Tyrol at the border with Austria where it extends by another ten villages and becomes the East Tyrolean Hochpustertal.
Located at the foot of the world-famous Dolomites, which have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for their beauty and unique character, Alta Pusteria is also known as the land of the Three Peaks and is one of the most impressive climbing and hiking areas in South Tyrol. Majestic mountain peaks, rugged rock formations, flowering alpine meadows and crystal-clear mountain lakes give the landscape of this area its character. The most popular destinations in the area include Lake Braies, Lake Dobbiaco, the Fanes-Senes-Braies Natural Park, the Three Peaks Nature Park, Val Fiscalina in Sesto, the Prato Piazza plateau and the wildlife park in Dobbiaco.
Lake Braies impresses visitors with its unique location at the foot of the Braies Dolomites and its deep blue, partly emerald green water, which reflects the surrounding peaks on sunny days. You can take a stroll around the picturesque Lake Dobbiaco, located at the entrance of Val di Landro, via an interactive, nature trail. It is located between the Three Peaks and Fanes-Senes-Braies natural parks. In the wildly romantic Val Fiscalina you can enjoy the tranquillity of seemingly untouched nature and be enchanted by the elegance of the Sesto Dolomites.
