Rasen im Antholzertal

Antholzer Valley is a side valley of the green Puster Valley; it branches off to the left of the interstate, 10 km outside of Bruneck. The climate, the sunny location, the special lure of the countryside, and the extremely romantic mountain world offer guests pleasure, tranquility, an relaxation at all times. That’s why it’s a preferred and popular vacation destination. The two beautifully picturesque villages of Niederrasen and Oberrasen are situated at the beginning of Antholzer Valley. Massive rock faces rise above dark green forests in the background of the valley – the topmost peak of the jagged, high mountain region of the Rieserferner is on Hochgall (3,445 m / 11,303 ft). The wonderfully situated lake, Antholzer Wildsee, lies at the end of the valley.
