Tradition and ancient customs are deeply rooted in Funes (Villnöss).
In this region, tourism which is 'close to nature' has been established, and peace and recuperation come first and foremost, in an unspoilt natural landscape away from all turbulences. Reinhold Messner comes from this valley. He learned how to climb in the mountainous region of the Geisler peaks.
As part of sustainable mobility in Funes, a regular public transport and shuttle service has just been developed on site.
