The community of Völs stretches from 315 m to 2564 m of altitude and offers a varied vegetation with vineyards and alpine meadows. The village is located at 880 m at the foot of Schlern Mountain in the vicinity of Alpe di Siusi. The village is characterised by a mild climate and the hay bath tradition. For this reason, Fiè allo Sciliar has been a renowned cure and holiday destination for more than 100 years. But also gourmets, those interested in culture and active holiday makers love staying in Fiè allo Sciliar.
