Art and culture are the flowers that blossom from the human spirit – much like the myriad of delicate flowers that speckle the Dolomites – illuminating our lives with energy and warming our hearts. In Alta Badia, the enchanting beauty of the surroundings has inspired the inhabitants for centuries, continuously prompting them to find new ways to capture and express this splendour. Museums and history, crafts and traditions, language and music – this is how wonder is made tangible.

The art exhibitions, traditional events and museums of Val Badia are more than mere refuges for dreary days. Many events take place under the open sky. "Le Tru di Artisc”, the Artists’ Trail", is an open-air gallery in the middle of nature. As you wander along it, you’ll discover sculptures by local artists, the lyrical beauty of Ladin poetry and an outdoor library. This is the perfect opportunity to embark on a family adventure and gently embrace the natural beauty surrounding you ...

“Le Tru di Artisc” ends directly in front of the Ursus Ladinicus Ladin museum in St. Kassian. In addition to exhibits on the geology of the Dolomites, it reveals facts about the Ladin cave bear, which once lived in the Conturines caves high up in the Dolomites. You can also visit these caves on a hike. A second Ladin museum is in St. Martin in Thurn, within the venerable walls of the Ciastel de Tor, an 800-year-old castle. Here, a collection of artefacts lays bare the thousand-year-old history of the Ladin community, illuminating their customs and the enduring legacy of their language.

… you and the natural and cultural harmony …

Discover art and culture on foot

Any season, whether summer or autumn, winter or spring, is a perfect time for a journey through the countryside on the “Tru dles Viles” farm hike. Witness traditional Ladin architecture as you hike from one small village to the next. The Rhaetian Tambra settlements are considered the oldest forms of Alpine mountain living. Many farmsteads along the slopes of Val Badia, with their wooden constructions and distinctive mushroom-shaped roofs, are inspired by these. Even on a leisurely hike, you will encounter a wealth of Ladin culture, which includes agricultural activities and the care of mountain meadows, such as cutting the grass and storing the hay on the mountain pastures. The nature parks are also home to culture: the Fanes-Sennes-Prags nature park is, after all, where the most famous Fanes legend originated.

Events and activities

Traditional markets are held regularly, offering a deep dive into Alta Badia’s way of life and allowing you to savour traditional food and drink. The local Ladin residents often welcome the opportunity to share their customs and way of life in the heart of the stunning Dolomites with you and your family. Our tip: keep an eye on our events calendar to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the interesting happenings.

… you and South Tyrol …

Bruneck and the South Tyrolean Pustertal Valley

At the end of Val Badia lies Kronplatz. It is also part of the legends of the Dolomites, as Princess Dolasilla was crowned on it. Today, there are two museums at the top of Kronplatz: the Lumen Museum, dedicated to mountain photography, and in a nearby building designed by renowned architect Zaha Hadid, one of the six Messner Mountain Museums, the MMM Corones. These cultural treasures are accessible even in winter, offering a unique opportunity to merge a visit with an adventure in the Kronplatz ski resort. Below, in Bruneck, the second Messner Mountain Museum, MMM Ripa, is situated within the castle and delves into the lives of mountain communities across the globe. Additionally, the town is home to a doll museum and a folklore museum. Bruneck is only an hour’s drive from refugium LaFlu.
