Those who love mountain climbing will at some point in their lives come to South Tyrol-Südtirol, because where else are the mountains more beautiful? The Val Pusteria-Pustertal valley forms the vertex between the main ridge of the Alps and the Dolomites, and the main city of Brunico-Bruneck is the ideal starting point for a tour. Starting out radially from there, all courses for mountain tours can be followed, with just short trips by car or else with public transportation. Those who do not wish to travel all that far can get from Falzes-Pfalzen directly to the famous Fundres-Pfunderer Mountain Trail, which can be managed over a total of six daily stages.
Towering above Gais are the majestic peaks of the Vedrette di Ries-Rieserferner chain. Peaks that are very popular and also easy to conquer for families are the Bel Colle-Schönbichl, Monte Sommo-Sambock, Montone-Rammelstein, and Campo Lasta-Burgstall. And those who prefer to take it a little easier can head up from Riscone-Reischach with the gondola to the peak of the Plan de Corones-Kronplatz, to be astonished there by the 360° mountain panorama.
