Culture and local life
In the 19th century the Stodertal was described as the "most beautiful eastern alpine valley", the imposing Spitzmauer even as the Austrian Matterhorn. But what is the fascination of this alpine valley in the south of Upper Austria surrounded by the mountain giants of the Dead Mountains?
We Stoderer appreciate our valley, that it is wide and flat on its entire length - so there is enough space for lush meadows on the valley floor and seemingly never-ending walks without large differences in height. Our valley is lovely and varied, because it is characterized by agriculture - meadows and fields alternate with streams and forests - and on the mountains are our alpine pastures.
We look up awesome to our mountains, which rise from the valley floor more or less steeply about 2,000 meters in the air. But we also like to look down from the Großer Priel (2,514 m) into our green valley and over the endless rocky expanse of the Dead Mountains. Almost everyone has their favorite places in the valley or on the mountain, some even give it up.
