The Eisacktal, seen from Mellaun near Brixen

The Eisacktal (Italian Valle Isarco, Ladin Val dl Isarch ) is one of the main valleys in South Tyrol (Italy). Geographically, it is enough from the origin of Eisack on the burner to its mouth into the Adige at Bolzano.

Traditionally, only the area of Fortezza is down the valley called Eisacktal, the Upper Eisacktal, ie the northern part of the valley, however, as Wipptal. Administratively, in turn, the communities of the Eisacktal are distributed to the district communities Wipptal, Eisacktal and Salten - Schlern.


The Eisacktal is dominated by the same river, the Eisack. This leaves the Wipptal at Fortezza. Important towns on Eisack are Sterzing, Bressanone, Chiusa, Ponte Gardena, Kollmann and Blumau.
