The third village of the plateau is Ladis, which in the centre maintained its mainly rural character.

Altitude: 1,200 m asl
The centre of Ladis is decorated with façade paintings, distinguishing itself from neighbouring villages by the large number of farms which have been maintained at Ladis. Ladis, both in summer and winter, is ideal for relaxing holidays in the countryside. Moreover you can enjoy cycling, e.g. with comfortable electronic bikes, or hiking along the scenic trails. Another highlight you might want to enjoy is a fabulous 6-course meal in a gondola at the neighbouring village of Fiss.
Highly recommendable: change your Guest Card into a “Super-Summer-Card”, providing lots of reductions as well as the free use of the seven mountain funiculars or the hiking bus shuttle. Also for families this card is particularly advantageous, as also animation for children is offered for free. In winter, Ladis is, like its neighbouring villages, integrated into the skiing area Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis, offering 196 km of ski slopes und 16 km of ski routes. This skiing area is by the way one of the most popular skiing areas of Tyrol.
Ladis has also got several sights to offer, e.g. its medical springs: since Middle Ages this village has been known for its sulfur and saline springs called “Oblader Sauerbrunn”. In 1833 in this place a hotel was built which in 1972 was destroyed by a fire. Today there is a guest house as well as a fountain, out of which you can bottle curative waters for personal use. Otherwise it is bottled and sold as “Tiroler Sauerbrunn”.
Our recommendation: Laudegg Castle is located in the north-east of the village and can be visited. Its residential tower was built around 1200 AD, the little great hall a little later. Up to the 16th century the castle served as administrative centre for the supreme court.
