Fane Alpine village

The Fane Alpine village is considered the most beautiful Alpine hamlet of South Tyrol and is a family excursion destination all year

The Fane Alpine village is a unique place in South Tyrol. This genuine Alpine village is located in the upper Val di Valles, surrounded by a backdrop without equals. Residential huts, hay huts, a little chapel and three mountain taverns - a total of approx. 30 buildings - form the idyllic hamlet.

Originally the Fane Alpine village was established as a hospital for pest or cholera patients. Today, however, it represents one of the main family destinations of the area. By the way, it is also starting point for worthwhile mountain hikes, such as to Mt Picco della Croce (3,134 m a.s.l.), which is also the highest peaks in the surroundings of the hamlet. Of course also the Fane Alpine village itself is an ideal place for an excursion. Kids can play among in between the mountain huts, there is much space for them.

A highlight is undoubtedly the Alpine Village Festival and the Milk Festival. By the way, the Fane Alpine village can be reached also along the "Milk Trail", which provides information on milk and cows. Moreover, in winter, it is the starting point for the popular touring ski race "Wurmaul-Umrundung". Apropos winter: in the cold season, you can enjoy tobogganing, from the alpine pasture down into the village of Valles.
