The municipality of Chienes and the associated hamlet San Sigismondo are situated in beautiful Val Pusteria, which stretches from the high mountains of the main ridge of the Alps in the North to the famous mountains of the Dolomites.

The holiday region, whose inhabitants speak German, Italian and Ladin, has a varied offer for young and old, for mountaineers, mountain bikers, climbers and, in winter, for lovers of ski tours and snowshoe hikes.
