The small village of Pfunds lies at 970 metres above sea level in the middle of the Tyrolean mountains. All around there is nothing but mountains, stone pine forests, alpine pastures and a gorge. Okay, that’s not quite true, but let’s say there’s hardly anything else. Pfunds is located in the Tyrolean Oberland, which offers you an incredible number of opportunities for sporting activities. In summer and winter, the region is the perfect destination for a holiday in the mountains. Mountain bikers, hikers, climbers, winter sports enthusiasts – they will all feel like they are in paradise on holiday in Pfunds. Thanks to the central location between Italy and Switzerland, you can also make many excursions to the two neighbouring countries. Pfunds is also the perfect place for an action-packed holiday with children.
Cross-country skiing in the valley, yet at lofty heights? Find orchids while hiking? It's possible. In the Pfundser Tschey, a high valley above Pfunds at about 1700 metres.
Experience and discover
Holiday paradise Pfunds
The small eco-community has only 2650 inhabitants. Few people, but lots of forests and mountains and wonderful nature experiences – that’s exactly what you want when you take a holiday in Tyrol. Six ski areas are in the immediate vicinity, and with various winter sports cards you have access to many more with hundreds of kilometres of slopes. By the way, it’s not only winter sports in Austria that are on the programme, you can also waggle down the slopes in nearby Italy. Book your time-out in the mountains.
But your summer holiday in Pfunds also offers you an extensive action programme: hiking on over 200 marked hiking trails, cycling and mountain biking, swimming in mountain lakes, rafting, canyoning, kiting or sailing are just a small excerpt of all the possibilities that the Tyrolean Oberland offers you in summer. The Pfundser Tschey, a high valley 600 metres above Pfunds, is very special, full of alpine huts. In winter, by the way, the Pfundser Tschey is the ideal place for a relaxed cross-country ski tour on flat terrain. In the valley, and yet in the mountains. No matter how much time you spend in Pfunds, you can do something new every day that you feel like.
In South Tyrol’s Reschensee, less than half an hour from Pfunds, a sunken church tower rises out of the water. More than 80 years ago, the village of Graun fell victim to the reservoir here. Only the steeple of the church of St. Katharina still bears witness to the former mountain village. If you have teenage children, it won’t take you long to persuade them to go on the trip. Just tempt them with the words “very Instagrammable“.
