Resia Pass Holiday Region

Unspoilt alpine nature & fresh mountain air

Summer and winter acitivities on the Resia Pass in South Tyrol

Hiking, kite surfing, ice sailing, fishing, cross-country skiing, archery and much more - the Resia Pass holiday region offers active holidaymakers a wide variety of leisure activities.

The Reschenpass holiday region consists of the villages of Reschen, Graun and St. Valentin, all of which lie on the ancient Roman trade route Via Claudia Augusta, at the border triangle between Italy, Austria and Switzerland. The heart of the holiday region is the sunken towet in the Resia Lake. The side valleys of Langtaufers and Rojen form a recreational area for those who enjoy silence and nature.

Altitudes from 1,400 m guarantee winter white all over the Resia Pass. In winter, the holiday region is a top spot for skiers, ice skaters, ski tourers, cross country skiers and winter hikers. For kite surfers and all those who like to spend their holidays on the water, the spectacular Resia Lake is just right.

The sunken tower in the Resia Lake

The landmark of the Vinschgau

The tower in the lake - the landmark of the Vinschgau Valley is both fairytale-like and fascinating: a sunken church tower rises lonely out of the 6 km long clear Resia Lake, againgst the mountain backdrop of the rustic Langtaufers Valley. But the story behind the well-known postcard motif, the "tower in the lake", is far less idyllic: the Romanesque little church from the 14th century is a silent witness to an irresponsible lake damming shortly after the end of the Second World War.
