Welcome to Val Pusteria

Dobbiaco (Toblach), where Gustav Mahler once holed up and wrote his troubled but ultimately life-affirming Ninth Symphony, is the gateway to the ethereal Parco Naturale delle Dolomiti di Sesto, home of the much-photographed Tre Cime di Lavaredo ('Three Peaks' or, in German, Drei Zinnen). Down yet another deeply forested valley twist are the jewel-like Lago di Braies (Pragser Wildsee) and its serious Alta Via No 1 walking route.

Bumping the Austrian and Veneto borders in the far northeast is a vast, wild territory, the Sesto Dolomiti, which is criss-crossed with spectacular walking and cross-country ski trails.
