The South Tyrolean cultural landscape in the Stelvio National Park is characterised by its high Alpine pastures, which are popular with hikers in summer and as ski resorts in winter. Along the trails, slopes and winter hiking trails of the Stelvio National Park lie numerous mountain inns and Alpine refuges. This is where skiers and other outdoor athletes stop for a well-earned break or for a hearty lunch snack with refreshments served on the sunny terrace. Thanks to the mild winter climate in the valleys, visitors can relax on the sunny terraces at the mountain refuges in South Tyrol, even in winter. The restaurants specialise in fresh, regional delicacies to satisfy the palate with a range of beverages to match.

Mountain shelters can also be found all the way up to the top of the 3,000 m summits.
