ORTISEI w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

Ortisei (Urtijëi) Leisure and activities - Ortisei (1236 m), the capital of the valley, blends the potent silence of the mountains with the bustling gaiety of a hub of culture and events. Here are the roots of famous local personalities like Luis Trenker and Giorgio Moroder, hence the town looks back on a long cultural tradition. However, opportunities for sport and nature lovers are numberless. Ortisei and the three hamlets Bulla, San Giacomo and Roncadizza, with a direct lift connection to the ski and hiking areas in Seceda, Alpe di Siusi, Rasciesa and to the ski circuit “Sellaronda” is the right place for a recreational break in the Dolomites.

S. CRISTINA The sunny village S. Cristina is surrounded by gentle alpine pastures and rugged peaks. Situated at 1428 m, it is a very popular holiday destination. As S. Cristina is the gateway to the Nature Park Puez-Odle in the Dolomites, which was declared a world natural heritage site by the UNESCO, and as it lies at the foot of the mountains Sassolungo and Sassopiatto, in summer it is integrated in an almost unlimited hiking net and in winter in the world’s largest ski area Dolomiti Superski. The great blend of culture and natural experience creates a space in which families and mountain enthusiasts feel at their ease, but also all people looking for a healthy and active holiday in close touch with nature. The trafficcalmed village centre invites to delightful strolls.

GEOGRAPHY Val Gardena is a side valley of Valle Isarco, in the northwestern Dolomites of South Tyrol. It stretches for about 25 km from Ponte Gardena (471 m) up to the Sella and Gardena Passes. Some 10 km after entering the valley you enter the Ladin-speaking area, which includes Ortisei (Ladin: UrtijĂŤi), S. Cristina and Selva (SĂŤlva). The narrow area of Pontives forms the Ladin-German language border. The Plans de Frea form the eastern border, and westwards the Pinei Pass divides Val Gardena from Castelrotto and Laion. To the North, the valley reaches Alpe Rasciesa and Funes, while Alpe di Siusi marks its southern border. From a geographical and linguistic point of view, the hamlets in the northern side of Alpe di Siusi belong to Val Gardena. However, some of them have always been part of the municipality of Castelrotto. Bulla is a separate parish.

NATURE RESERVE PUEZ-ODLE w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

Nature Reserve Puez-Odle The park is located at an average on 2500 m, and has a surface area of 10200 ha. Its rocky upland features a number of geological peculiarities: natural bridges and amphitheatre-shaped karst landforms, steep ridges and rocky towers bear witness to the geological and morphological changes that this mountain massif has undergone over time. The local flora and fauna are as diverse as the landscape. Many deciduous trees grow in the valley, like sycamore maples, birches and aspens, whereas the high mountain slopes are covered with needle-leaved trees, mainly spruces and larches. Above the timber line, mugo pines and junipers mark the end of the conifer forest. Rhododendrons and small high mountain flowers blanket the areas up towards the scree slopes. The edelweiss, the pink cinquefoil, the yellow alpine poppy and the devil’s claw grow here, together with several varieties of primroses and stone-breakers. The less fertilized downhill slopes are dotted with asteraceae, bellflowers, gentians, orchids and faboideae. Numerous animal species live in the park so you are quite likely to spot hares, squirrels, chamois and marmots, or follow the trail of pine martens, badgers or alpine ibexes during your walks. Butterflies flitter over meadows and birds fill the air with their song.



The park’s top priorities - besides research and recovery - are nature protection, landscape conservation and environmental education. Further information about the Natural Park, natural and botanical guided tours and wildlife watching are available at the Tourist Offices in Val Gardena and at the local Alpine Schools.


w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

The rocky area is often populated with several singing and gallinaceous birds, like the little owl, the long-eared owl, the craig martin, the alpine swift and the red-winged wallcreeper, whereas the rare golden eagle can be spotted in Vallunga.

KEEP THE VALLEY CLEAN w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

Keep the valley clean We are all responsible for protecting the environment. We can choose to help safeguard it, or damage it. It is therefore in everyone’s interest to minimize waste and to correctly dispose of it. A few simple rules help us protect the environment and its resources: - Always keep to the marked trails and paths; this helps prevent damage to the meadows and alpine pastures. - Do not pick protected flower species. - Respect the habitat of animals, do not make any unnecessary noise. - Do not light fires! -

Do not litter! Please take your rubbish with you and dispose of it according to local regulations. When you buy something, choose loose products or items sold in reusable packaging. Your shopkeeper will be happy to recycle packaging for you.

- Avoid disposable items and buy drinks in returnable bottles. - For dog owners: please dispose promptly of your dog’s waste properly. If you have any hazardous waste, like drugs, batteries or aerosols, hand them in to your host or to shops that sell those products. Attention: Please note that in Val Gardena each household or business is provided with its own waste container. Street-side bins are for recycling only (glass, paper). Ask your host for any further information.


HISTORY OF SKIING The world-famous skiing and hiking region offers an area packed with recreational opportunities for active, sporty and trend-conscious guests all year round. Val Gardena looks back on a long winter sports tradition: the first skiclub of Val Gardena, named “Ladinia”, was established at the beginning of the 20th century, only a few years after the first wooden skis were introduced to the Alpine valleys from the northern countries. The initial scepticism quickly turned into great enthusiasm: in 1908 the first ski races were held through the Danterceppies wood, down to Selva Gardena. In the following years, many ski fans were attracted by the ideal conditions of Val Gardena. The valley has produced several outstanding local skiers, and many winter sports successes have been recorded over the years: • Vinzenz Demetz, 1937, Nordic World Ski Championship in Chamonix, two bronzes in cross-country skiing (50 km and relay) • Karl Senoner, 1966, slalom World Champion in Portillo, Chile • Pepi Ploner, 1985, cross-country relay Vice World Champion • Simon Demetz, 1991, biathlon World Champion • Peter Runggaldier, 1991, downhill Vice World Champion; 1995, super-G World Cup winner • Karin Moroder, 1998, bronze in cross-country relay at the Olympics • Isolde Kostner, 2001, downhill World Cup winner, several medals at the Olympics and in the World Championships. A remarkable year in the history of local ski was 1970, when the Alpine Skiing World Championships were held in Val Gardena. Ski legends Karl Schranz, Patrick Russel, Jean Noël, Bernhard Russi and Gustav Thöni all made their mark on that particular occasion. A tradition was thus established, and it is so far unbroken: every year, in December, the best Super-G World Cup and men’s downhill skiers gather from all over the world to compete on the renowned Saslong piste.

SKITOUR GARDENA 1970 w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

1970 World Championship Skiing Tour You can start this exhilarating skiing tour either from S. Cristina or from Ortisei. If you choose Ortisei, your tour begins with the 6 km-long downhill “Südtirol Gardenissima” piste, which runs from the Seceda high plateau down to Col Raiser. An underground funicular railway connects the ski area Sochers/Ciampinoi with Col Raiser/Seceda, thus making the climb much easier. If you choose to start from S. Cristina, you ascend to Monte Sëura, and on to Ciampinoi, Plan de Gralba and Piz Setëur, in the ski arena between the Sella Massif and Sassolungo. Afterwards, you can enjoy the run down to Selva Gardena on the piste where Karl Schranz won the giant slalom World Championship in 1970. The tour continues with “Cir”, the piste of the women’s downhill World Championship race, and with the “Saslong” downhill slope, which saw the success of Swiss skier Bernhard Russi in 1970. The tour ends back in Col Raiser, on the pleasant 9 km downhill run to Ortisei.

HISTORY w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

History The early history of the Dolomite region is still widely unknown. The first human settlements date back to 6000 B.C. Findings from “Plan de Frea” confirm that hunters used to live there in the summer, and the excavations carried out in “Col de Flam” testify to a permanent settlement dating back to 400 B.C. Later Rhaetians - whose origins remain unknown - settled in the tributary alpine valleys. In 15 B.C. the area was conquered by the Roman commander Drusus. The name Val Gardena is mentioned for the first time in 999 A.D., in a document mentioning “Forestum ad Gredine” (Val Gardena woodland) being handed over to Bishop Gottschalk from the Freising Abbey. Communication had always been difficult, but in 1856 the Val Gardena road was opened and a new era began for the whole area. The Val Gardena Railway Committee, chaired by Josef Riffesser, put forward a plan to build a railway line at the beginning of the 20th century, but this did not occur until 1915 when it was needed to deliver supplies to the Austrian troops on the Dolomite front. It took just 4 ½ months to build a 31 km narrow gauge railway line which was inaugurated on 6 February 1916. After the end of the war, the steam trains continued to be crucial for moving people and goods and, in fact, more and more tourists were attracted to the area by this means of transport until the rail line was decommissioned in 1960. Today, the former railway line path, “la ferata”, from Ortisei to Selva via S. Cristina is a reminder of that eventful era and affords stunning views of the surrounding mountains.


LANGUAGE The very heart of the Ladin culture is its language. Ladin belongs to the Romance language family and has been influenced both by Rhaetic and German. Ladin was probably already spoken in Val Gardena during the first century A.D. The local variety is similar to Romansh, the language spoken in Grisons, the Swiss canton. Connections with other varieties spoken in the neighbouring valleys (Val Badia, Val di Fassa, Livinallongo and Ampezzo) are also evident. Ladin was influenced by both Latin and German, assimilating the pleasant sounds of the first and integrating many words from the second. Nonetheless, it survived in the tributary valleys, and today Ladin is the first language of most Val Gardena inhabitants. Survival of the Ladin language is supported by local radio and TV broadcasts, publications and various cultural activities, and it is also taught as a compulsory subject in schools.

Some Ladin expressions: Bon dì = Good morning Bona sëira = Good evening Co es’a inuem? = What’s your name? De gra = Thank you Assudëi = Good bye

ARTS & CRAFT w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

Arts and craft The wood-carving tradition in Val Gardena started around 1600, when families would gather together during the long winter evenings and carve tools, religious images and toys to sell at the forthcoming spring markets. By the late 18th century, wood-carving had become a significant economic sector. Specific vocational schools were set up and a new modern industry was created. The work of the local sculptors even began to be acknowledged abroad. Their art continued to develop and new carving methods were adopted which led to the creation of an innovative and original craftsmanship with unrivalled quality and tradition. Enjoy the living traditions of Val Gardena, when the exhibition of nativity scenes, the Christmas Market in S. Cristina and the yearly Snow and Ice Sculpture Competition take place. Handicraft demonstrations and displays are frequently held in Val Gardena, such as the Sculpture Exhibition UNIKA (23-26 August 2012).

Permanent exhibition UNIKA: In Roncadizza (Str. Arnaria 9), 45 artists of the group UNIKA, display their works in a gallery of about 500 m2, where you can also observe a sculptor or a painter at work. The exhibition is open from Monday to Saturday (from 10 to 12 a.m. and 2 to 7 p.m.), entrance is free of charge. Park possibilities. For further information phone 339 1792227.


ARTS & CRAFT Since 2000, the world’s largest nativity scene has been displayed in the Iman Sports Centre in S. Cristina. The project is being carried out by a group of 18 sculptors. It was initiated in 1998 with the first statue being that of the Holy Mary with Baby Jesus. Creativity, sensibility, sense of art and skill fostered the idea: St. Joseph, the Magi, a shepherd, a donkey, three sheep, an Angel and a camel are now part of the scene, and the family continues to grow year after year.

TRADITIONS AND THEIR COSTUMES Everyday life in Val Gardena is imbued with ancient traditions. Customs and celebrations take place all year round: as their original meaning often risks oblivion, retrieving and keeping them alive is crucial. Together with the Ladin language and craftsmanship, the local folk costume is at the very heart of Val Gardena culture. Its lavish decorations make it one of the most beautiful costumes in the Alps; the costume is particularly important as it identifies the social status of the person wearing it. The most beautiful costumes are worn during weddings. On such occasions, not only do they indicate the wearer’s social status, but also his/ her specific role. In the Ladin language, the grandparents of a wedded couple are called nëinesc: grandmother (ava) and grandfather (nëine). Grandparents were distinguished in their dress sense by wearing white woollen berets called cazina; apart from this, their clothing resembled that of others of their age. Grandmothers usually wear a petticoat by the name of carsetl dala pinta, with very large sleeves buttoned low on the wrist: padded and loose to the elbow and then tight above the elbow; a Damascus silk apron (gurmel fosch da ondes) covers the black skirt with numerous folds (sciossa). Grandfathers wear a shirt (ciamëija), a silk handkerchief worn around their neck (fazuel de sëida) and a gilet (camesëul de sëida): just like any other man of the area, they wear leather trousers (brea de pel). The long mantel which he carries with him is called bagana: you can 89

The cultural scene and libraries

MUSEUM GHERDËINA w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

Museum Gherdëina The Val Gardena Museum in the centre of the Ladin village Ortisei shows unique collections that take the visitor on a fascinating journey through the natural and cultural history of this special mountain valley located in the heart of the Dolomites. The history covered comprises the period from the geological genesis of the Dolomites about 200 million years ago and the archaeological finds of the oldest human settlements in the Val Gardena area to the legendary life of the mountaineer and filmmaker Luis Trenker (1892-1990). A remarkable collection of religious and secular sculptures as well as charming wooden toys attest Val Gardena’s great artistic tradition since the 17th century. In addition, the art section is enriched by paintings of Josef Moroder Lusenberg (1846-1939) and other local painters. Two very extraordinary exhibits are the richly illustrated Lenten cloth of the Saint James’ Church above Ortisei (around 1620) and the very impressive original crucifix of Sëurasas (1932). The new multimedia exhibition “Bierjun 1490. A Secret Passion” shows the tiny bedroom from the Bierjun farmhouse near Ortisei, in which very rare red chalk drawings from the Late Middle Ages were discovered: the delicate drawings on the wooden walls are shown through a “digital window”. The large map of ancient houses at the entrance of the museum and the exhibition boards in the garden provide insight into the current situation of Val Gardena’s rural cultural landscape.

THE SIGHTS w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

The sights Churches and chapels San Giacomo’s Church San Giacomo’s Church, dedicated to the patron saint of pilgrims and travellers, is traditionally known as the oldest church in Val Gardena: its origins date back to the 12th century. It is located right above Ortisei, along the ancient path, “Troi Paian”, and can only be reached on foot. A beautiful circular walk connects S. Cristina (Plesdinaz) with the church. The current overall appearance is Gothic, and the inside is part Gothic and part Baroque. The church features remarkable frescoes (late 15th century) in the presbytery. Wall paintings from the 16th century, illustrating the legend of San Giacomo (St. James), decorate the area near the pulpit. The local wood-carving tradition is represented in the main altar. Around 1750 the Vinazer-Pescosta brothers decorated it with spiral columns, gilded images of ancient church leaders, apostles and angels. The current sculptures and artwork on the main altar are replicas made by local carvers. The originals are on display at the Val Gardena Museum in Ortisei. Opening times: 02.07.-14.09.2012 Mon., Tue. and Thu. 10.30 a.m. - noon, Wed. and Fri. 10.30 a.m. - noon and 3.30 - 5 p.m.. More information at the Tourist Office Ortisei.

“Santa Maria ad Nives” - Selva Gardena Parish Church The 19th century Neo-Gothic nave was dismantled in 1988 and replaced by an 8-sided building. The chancel and the main altar painting by Lucas Cranach date back to 1670. In 1503 Wilhelm von Wolkenstein had a chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary built on this spot. It became a major pilgrimage destination, and was subsequently enlarged. The outer wall of the sacristy still bears a Von Wolkenstein coat of arms made of granite. 98


Memorial Chapel to Mountain Victims The chapel was built in the Selva’s graveyard to commemorate all mountaineers who die in the Dolomites in Val Gardena. Their names are engraved in a large copper book.

Gardena Pass Chapel The chapel was built by the local “Alpini” groups and it is dedicated to their patron saint, St. Maurice. It was inaugurated in Spring 2004.

S. Cristina Parish Church A chapel dedicated to Santa Cristina existed here probably at the end of the 12th century. A Romanesque church was mentioned in a papal document in 1342. The bell tower walls, up to the roof eaves, date back to that period. The church was extensively altered and enlarged: the choir is in the Gothic style, and a polygonal ossuary was added in the 16th century. The main altar (1690, Vinazer dynasty of sculptors) is worth a visit. The bronze statue of St. Philomena by Dominik Mahlknecht, once in the ossuary, is now in the main square of S. Cristina. 99

w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

St. Sylvester’s Chapel in Vallunga - Selva Gardena This tiny, charming place of silence and meditation was dedicated to the patron saint of cattle. 300 year-old frescoes illustrating the history of Jesus’ life were uncovered during restoration work in 1993.

THE SIGHTS w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

Ortisei Parish Church Two aisles were added to the late Baroque building at the beginning of the 20th century. This remarkable church is decorated with several paintings, carvings, statues and images (among which a statue of St. Ulrich by Ludwig Moroder and the altar painting depicting the “Adoration of the Magi” by Josef Moroder-Lusenberg).

St. Anna’s Chapel A small church built at the beginning of the 15th century in the Ortisei’s graveyard. It features a noteworthy portal and several ancient gravestones and memorials.

St. Anthony’s Chapel Photographers love the turrets of this plain building erected in 1673 on the main square in Ortisei. It features an altar painting depicting St. Anthony from Padua, by the Swiss painter Melchior Paul von Deschwanden.

Bulla Parish Church The beautiful Romanesque church, dedicated to St. Leonard, was built around the 13th century. Its main altar dates back to the 18th century.

The Holy Cross Chapel, built in 1755 in Rasciesa di Fuori (over 2200 m) is also worth a visit.


THE SIGHTS Fischburg Castle - Castel Gardena The castle was built between 1622 and 1641 by Engelhard Dietrich von Wolkenstein-Trostburg. It is located between Selva and S. Cristina and was used as a summer and hunting lodge. In 1863, Count Leopold von Wolkenstein-Trostburg granted the castle to S. Cristina municipality to transform it into an almshouse. The castle has been owned by the Franchetti Barons since 1926, and it is currently closed to the public.

Wolkenstein Castle A steep path starts near the “Carabinieri� training centre in Vallunga (Selva) and heads up to the castle ruins. Built at the beginning of the 13th century, it collapsed in 1525 and has never been rebuilt. It has been owned by the Wolkenstein family since the 14th century. Oswald von Wolkenstein, a famous minstrel and poet born in South Tyrol between 1376 and 1387, died in Merano in 1445, probably spent his summers in the castle. 101

w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t


THE SIGHTS w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

Stetteneck Castle In the summer of 2000, in Val d’Anna in Ortisei on the so-called Pincan hill at the foot of the Balest mountain, remains of a wall from the 13th century were discovered. The researches revealed that it must be the ruins of the Stetteneck Castle, which was nominated only once in a document of 1324. Thus, only little information about it exists. Adelheid, daughter of Knight Gebhard von Stetteneck, was probably the last owner of the castle. The excavations are still in progress. Among the present finds are also the remains of a Romanesque portal. Stetteneck Castle, situated at the ancient trade route Troi Paian, is believed to be the castle of a renowned robber baron mentioned in a local legend by Karl Felix Wolff. The lord of the castle extorted heavy tolls from passing merchants or held them for ransom in the dungeon. At the time, legend had it that a virgin had been walled up in the castle foundations: if another virgin were to die in the castle, the whole building would collapse. One day the Lord’s granddaughter was seriously injured while attempting to set some prisoners free. All the servants and prisoners fled from the castle for fear of it collapsing, but the Lord remained at the side of his dying grandchild while the building fell down around them. The ruin cannot be visited at the moment.


Purger Memorial The monument is near the church square in Ortisei. It was built in memory of Johann Baptist Purger (1805 - 1872), the mayor who fought for the construction of the Val Gardena Road from Ponte Gardena to Ortisei.


w w w . v a l g a r d e n a . i t

Emilio Comici Memorial The carved-wood monument in memory of the famous mountaineer is found under the “Parëi de Ciampac” rock wall, in Vallunga, where Comici fell to his death in 1940. He made over 200 first ascents in the Dolomites, he was the director of the ski school in Selva and town mayor between 1938 and 1940.


Luis Trenker Memorial The monument is located along the path named after him. It is dedicated to “Bera Luis”, the famous local actor, director, writer and passionate mountaineer who successfully conveyed his love for the mountains to his vast audience.

More sights

A spherical equatorial sundial with a diameter of 2 metres is positioned at Monte Pana. Made of iron, brass and gold, it is positioned on top of a 10-ton porphyry plinth. It indicates the true solar time for S. Cristina and 60 more cities around the world. It also shows the Central European Time, the current sign of the zodiac, equinoxes, solstices and seasons.

A musical clock is set into the façade of the “Sartëur” house in Selva. Every day at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. (5 p.m. in winter), nine valuable bells play different tunes. Four wood-carved medieval statues appear as the music starts. The paintings on the wall depict the craftsmen who used to work in the area, which was once called “Ghetun”.

The old mills in Bulla, right above Ortisei, were built in the 18th and 19th century. The Zaramin mill is abandoned, but the Rumanon mill was restored in 1999 and the Droch mill in 2010. They are now fully operational. Visitors can join a guided tour and learn more about the mills and the ancient local lifestyle. More information is available at the Tourist Office in Ortisei. Geotrail Bulla Along the geological trail between the Passo PinĂŤi and Bulla, you can find interesting information panels explaining the evolution of the world-renowned Dolomites. The path leads through geological highlights on the margin of the UNESCO world heritage site and offers fantastic panoramic views on the mountains of Val Gardena. Walking time: 2-2.5 hours Difference in altitude: 150 m


Plenty of indoor activities are available for you to enjoy yet another aspect of Val Gardena. You can take a coach tour in summer, indulge in relaxing, feel-good treatments at the local spas, play indoor sports or visit:
