The delightful village of Collepietra has a beautiful location perched on a sunny mountain terrace 823 m above sea level at the centre of the superb Alpine region the Dolomites. The magnificent view from here extends across the Eisacktal valley, to the Ritten and with the finest the Dolomites have to offer to the east - the high peaks panorama of the Catinaccio and the Schlern. An extraordinarily attractive climate with plenty of sunshine and an untouched natural environment in one of the finest of all mountain regions make this a most delightful place for a holiday stay. Hikers, walkers, mountain bikers thrill to the sheer endless length, variety and beauty of the tracks to follow into the mountains around Collepietra. The only observatory and astronomical station in South Tyrol is to be found at Obergummer. The museum in Collepietra and the wonderful castle in neighbouring Cornedo are the spectacular centres of the cultural life in these two communities.
Collepietra is so easy to get to with public transport: the train will take you straight to the provincial capital of South Tyrol.
