Pfitscher Tal valley is an Alpine high valley in the north of South Tyrol. It stretches for 23 kilometres from the valley basin at Wiesen near Sterzing via Innerpfitsch to the Pfitscher Joch pass, which marks the border between Italy and Austria. This picturesque valley is surrounded by the Zillertal Alps, the Tuxer Kamm mountain ridge and the Pfunders mountains. Many of the mountain peaks are over 3,000 metres high – a paradise for hikers, mountain bikers and mountaineers.

Keen mountaineers and sporty holidaymakers will get their money’s worth in the spectacular Alpine landscape of the Pfitscher Tal valley. Whether it’s a mountain tour to the Hochfeiler, the highest peak in the Zillertal Alps, or a mountain bike tour to Pfitscher and Pfunderer Joch pass, there are countless possibilities for experiencing the mountains.

Unforgettable natural experience

A Farm Holiday in Pfitscher Tal valley offers guests unspoilt nature and peace and quiet. You can engage all your senses and consciously focus on the natural world around you on a leisurely walk past Riederau, Sanderau and Grafau biotopes. Riederau biotope is a large marshy area at Pfitscher Stausee reservoir covering several hectares. Coves and ponds provide a habitat for amphibians, fish and waterfowl. Deciduous woodland is quite unusual for the area, with mountainsides covered with fir, larch and pine trees. Yet conditions in the three marshy areas are just right for alder, willow and birch trees. Even the famous edelweiss flower grows here. The idyllic Pfitscher Joch lakes, lying beneath the pass of the same name at 2,280 metres above sea level, are a popular hiking destination.

Winter in the valley

20 kilometres of excellently prepared cross-country trails await holiday guests in winter. There is a gentle walking path alongside the trail that is especially suitable for families. Sledgers will also be provided for in Pfitscher Tal valley in the snowy season and there are a number of child-friendly sledge runs. It’s worth staying in a holiday flat or room in Pfitscher Tal in winter, too.

The legend of the ‘Nörggelen‘

The well-known tale of the ’Nörggelen‘ comes from Pfitscher Tal valley, according to the locals. These ‘Nörggelen‘ were wicked goblins who played tricks on the inhabitants of the valley. They annoyed the farmers and disrupted their work. Yet, if there were in a good mood, they would take care of early-morning chores in the stables. Nobody ever saw them, but their giggling was heard. Later on, they apparently moved on from Pfitscher Tal and reached the lake at Gansöhralm pasture over the Wilde Kreuzspitze mountain. This lake bears the name of Norggensee today.
