Enjoy the highest of pleasures
The Ahrntal Valley - a haven for hikers with unique peaks and a breathtaking backdrop. A world of wonders, relaxing with friends, constantly discovering new experiences, in the mountains, under the sun, on the snow. A natural jewel between majestic alpine glaciers and lush mountain pastures.
Enjoy the stunning beauty of the Ahrntal Valley. Forget the stresses and strains of everyday life breathe freely in Italy’s only healing caves in Predoi-Prettau! Listen to the sound of the wind rustling the leaves, cool your feet in the refreshing waters of a fast flowing mountain stream. Glide through bottomless powder snow traversing seemingly endless slopes. Simply come and be, forget everyday life, dare to try something else and discover new ways ...
NEWS - ICE GAMES 2020
Over the last few days, the 11th edition of the international Snow Sculpture Festival has taken place at 2,510m a.s.l. against the breathtaking backdrop of the Zillertaler Alps. 10 teams of artists from South Tyrol, Germany, Austria and Italy have skillfully shaped prominent faces of the present and the past into snow and ice and have once again transformed the marvelous mountain scenery into an open-air exhibition. The crown of the winning sculpture Mr. Bean goes to Kurt and Annemarie Wierer from Rasen / Rasun, followed by the Austrians Matthäus Mayrhauser and Alexander Kaufmann with their sculpture of legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. The 3rd place goes to Isaak Demetz and Samuel Steiner, students of the provincial training school for arts and crafts Val Gardena, and their professor Norbert Insam who brought Mother Theresa from Kalkutta on top of the K2.
Moreover, Pope Francis, the Dalai Lama, as well as celebrities from the movie business such as Marilyn Monroe, Bud Spencer, Pippi Longstocking and also Luis from Ulten gathered at this “summit” of a very special kind. Thanks to their skillfulness and their love for detail, the artists managed to create unique pieces of art which will be accessible for the public all through the winter season until the spring sun is going to melt the sculptures down.
