Valle di Anterselva in the heart of Val Pusteria is nestling in the spectacular mountain world of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage. Valle di Anterselva is known in particular because of Lago di Anterselva, Passo Stalle and the Biathlon centre Anterselva. Tips for excursions in Valle di Anterselva and surrounding area:
- Lago di Anterselva
Lago di Anterselva is an idyllic, deep green mountain lake in the Vedrette di Ries Aurina nature park. The lake is the third largest in South Tyrol and tempts with a circular walk. When the lake freezes in winter, romantic ice skating becomes another main attraction.
In the surrounding area there are also Lago di Braies, Lago di Dobbiaco and Lago di Misurina.
- Biathlon centre Anterselva
Breathe in World Cup air and watch the international biathletes at work. You will love the arena with its fantastic backdrop of the mountains. You can also visit the stadium in summer and take part in the guest shooting event.
The Gothic church of St. Walburga in Anterselva di Sotto was built in the 15th century and extended in 1952. St. George’s church in Anterselva di Mezzo, which was redesigned as a Baroque church in 1798, is also worth a visit.
