Dates & facts
The Pustertal Valley
covers an area of 2,071 sq km. This is about 28% of South Tyrol
. About 73,000 people live here. Only 25% of that area is at an altitude between 500 and 1,000 m. More than half of it is situated between 1,000 und 2,000 m, the rest above. That means: rarely no bottom, lots of hill-sides, lots of woods (green valley and good air), mountains and glaciers.
The highest mountain is the Hochfeiler
(3,510 m) in the Zillertal valley; the most famous one is the Kronplatz. Agriculture, crafts, trade and tourism have had a great input on labour. Lots of the rural tradition has been held up. The mountains make the valley so attractive. The Dolomites
on the one side, the Alps
on the other. All you can see are hills, rocks and woods.
