Information on Val Rendena, Italy, Trentino

A holiday valley to fall in love with

Surrounded by the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park in Trentino, the Rendena Valley is home to the characteristic small villages, sometimes just a few houses, small squares and a church. Hospitality, wonderful natural surroundings and a wide range of activities attract tourists from all over the world to Val Rendena, and especially to Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo, the two main attractions in the valley.

Madonna di Campiglio: The Ski World Cup has been held here since 1957. From the village alone you can practice skiing on 60 kilometres of slopes. With the merger with the Folgarida-Marilleva and PInzolo ski resorts, there are 150 km of slopes of all degrees of difficulty. But here, in the middle of the enchanting landscape of the Brenta Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is clearly not only skiing that dominates in winter.

There are more than 400 km of hiking trails spread throughout the Val Rendena in Italy. There are natural jewels without end to discover whilst hiking. Enthusiastic mountain bikers will also not feel left out. Golf enthusiasts will discover two beautiful greens at their disposal, and if you are in the mood for beauty and herbal treatments, the perfect place to stay is Caderzone, the oldest settlement in Val Rendena, Trentino.

Madonna di Campiglio & the Austrian Empire

You may wonder, what the famous ski resort of Madonna di Campiglio has to do with the Austrian Empire? Why does Madonna di Campiglio have a "Piazza Sissi" and a restaurant called "La Stube di Franz Joseph"? And why is there a "Hapsburg Carnival' in February? Back in 1188, a hospice was founded in Madonna di Campiglio, which was leased by a businessman at the end of the 19th century. He had the monastic cells converted into rooms and founded a mountain hotel, where time and again climber pioneers came. The mountain village became famous, especially among members of the European nobility, and in 1889 Emperor Franz Joseph I and his wife Empress Elisabeth arrived in Madonna di Campiglio and went on many excursions. Franz Joseph and Sissi were so fascinated by this region that five years later, in 1894, they visited again.
