Prutz

The holiday resort Prutz is located on a debris cone of the Faggenbach river at the entrance of the Kaunertal valley.

Altitude: 866 m asl

Mentioned for the first time in the year 1028 AD, already before this date, in the period of time of the Carolingians, Prutz was an area where people used to stop. Later on it was a posting station. At the beginning of the 20th century a fire devastated great parts of the village, but the ancient village-scape with its typical West Tyrolean characteristics could fortunately be preserved.

Due to its position at the entrance of the Kaunertal valley, in summer Prutz is a popular starting point for hiking and cycling tours in the hiking area Ried-Prutz-Fendels, the Kaunertal valley and the tri-border region between Austria, Italy and Switzerland. After an exhausting hike we recommend you to make a jump into the swimming pool of Prutz, offering three different pools, a water slide, a counter-current swimming pool and a wave pool as well as a 15,000 sqm lawn for sunbathing. Moreover the weekly animation programme for children with the mascot “Bibi” makes holidays in the village even more varied.

In winter Prutz makes part of the family skiing area Ried-Prutz-Fendels with its 11 km of ski slopes. Moreover the “Ski6″ ski-pass also makes you access the other five skiing areas Nauders (Bergkastel), Venet, Serfaus and Fiss-Ladis (forming the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis skiing area) and Kaunertal Glacier. In other words, 340 km of ski slopes are on hand in your winter holidays! Further winter sports activities that can be practised in the surroundings of the village are cross-country skiing, sledging and snow-shoeing, making Prutz a really popular winter holiday resort.

Our recommendation: the so-called “Sauerbrunnenquelle” spring at Prutz is considered to contain very healthy and acidic water.
