San Candido village

Strolling across the pedestrian zone, skiing at Monte Baranci or visiting Dolomythos, San Candido makes you fully enjoy your time.

San Candido is the chief village of the municipality and was mentioned for the first time in 769. Located at 1,175 m asl, it has got 2,100 inhabitants. A mixture of culture and nature, a combination of relaxation and adventure, that is what you are going to experience during your stay in this village. San Candido also offers a museum that focuses on the stunning Dolomites, called Dolomythos. In this museum, adults and kids can get useful information on the genesis of the Dolomites.

Want to spend a day in the pool? Acquafun! To those who prefer spending their day under the open sky we recommend a walk across the farmsteads at Monte San Candido, or a tour to the Rif. Baranci. Also worth seeing are the former thermal baths Bagni di San Candido, in the 19th century meeting point for aristocrats. The seven show rooms of the museum Colleggiata di San Candido might be a recommendation for a rainy day.

For your skiing holidays we recommend the 93 km of ski slopes of the Three Peaks skiing region in the Sesto Dolomites. No matter if you choose the Monte Baranci or Monte Elmo, slopes for every taste and great views on the surrounding mountains are guaranteed.

A coffee on Piazza S. Michele and a stroll across the pedestrian zone must absolutely be part of your holidays. Every season has its highlights: in winter, in the frame of the Balloon Festival, little balloons are enlightened in the evening, in January pieces of are created in the frame of the International Snow sculpture festival decorate the centre of the village. In summer, see you at the village festival Marktlfest.
