The mountain world of the Venosta Valley

Laas/Lasa is only a few kilometers away from Schlanders/Silandro and has a picturesque historic center. Hiking fans can enjoy over 100km of hiking trails. The Stelvio National Park and the Ötztal Alps offer great tours for beginners and especially for experienced mountain hikers, leading to snow-covered 3000-m peaks.

In Laas/Lasa and the surrounding area, there are also many family-friendly hiking trails, including the popular Waalweg trails that lead along the various watercourses. If you are a cycling or mountain biking fan, we recommend the approximately 80 km long Etsch cycle path, which runs along the ancient Roman road Via Claudia Augusta.

Laas is also famous for its excellent apricots and in summer you should not miss the culinary and cultural festival "Marmor & Marillen" (marble and apricots).
