Madonna di Campiglio is a fraction of the municipality of Pinzolo, located in Trentino Alto Adige, in the province of Trento. Located at 1522 meters above sea level, it is a small jewel set in the Dolomites.
It is a popular and fashionable ski resort. In winter the fun on the endless and famous ski slopes of the new Ski Area Madonna di Campiglio – Pinzolo – Folgarida – Marilleva is guaranteed. It boasts, not surprisingly, the presence of about 60 kilometers of ski slopes and 20 lifts for a total of about 150 kilometers of slopes that cross the slopes at high altitude alongside a landscape studded with lakes, valleys, streams, alpine huts and refuges, over 70 thousand square meters of snowparks and 40 for Nordic skiing.
Madonna di Campiglio is home to the Three Races in Trentino, one of the oldest ski races in Europe.
On the 3 Tre slope, there are also special slalom races for the Alpine Ski World Cup.
Madonna di Campiglio, however, is also one of the most prestigious destinations for summer tourism, also chosen by the rulers of Austria, in the second half of the nineteenth century, as a location for their holidays.
The memory of Princess Sissi and Emperor Franz Joseph is still alive today.
In the mountain village there is also the Habsburg Carnival, during which the traditional customs of the past are recalled. A day marked by parades in period costumes, conferences and cultural events dedicated to the Emperor Franz Joseph who reigned over Campiglio.
Homage to the great ruler continues in the summer. Every year, in fact, the 18th of August celebrates the Emperor’s Birthday, yet another day dedicated to the wonderful and precious period costumes.
