A fascinating past

San Nicolò/St. Nikolaus is the valley’s third biggest town, located on a sunny hill on an altitude of 1,256 meters above sea level. The location is notable for its Gothic chapel which dates back to the 14th century, for a defense tower from the 15th century, as well as the legendary Thurnerhof farm. Thanks to its idyllic location and marvelous old farms, San Nicolò/St. Nikolaus is considered by many to be the valley’s most beautiful town.

If you are interested in the local history and culture, then the San Nicolò/St. Nikolaus Valley Museum is the place to go to. Here you will be able to discover traditional farmer’s parlors, agricultural tools and handicrafts, as well as information about the local nature and animals. The museum is open from March to October. Tel. +39 0473 790374

After a visit to the museum, explore the great outdoors! The area around San Nicolò/St. Nikolaus is truly picturesque, with many soft green meadows and impressive farms built in the traditional local style.

In winter, the Family & Funpark attracts Alpine skiers of all skill levels as well as tobogganing aficionados. Check out the Alps’ longest snowtubing track, learn to ski or enjoy night tobogganing (sledding).
