The town of Niederdorf is located in the centre of the Dolomites, a famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, at 1,154 metres above sea level, in the eastern part of South Tyrol. The highest mountain in the municipality of Niederdorf is the Sarlkofel with a height of 2,378 metres. Currently, the town has 1,574 inhabitants; for 94.32% percent of them German is their mother tongue.
The town was first mentioned in 994 under the name of “Nidrindorf”, and as a parish first in 1225. During the reign of the earls of Görz and Tyrol the town was the seat of the court. Starting from the middle of the 19th century, and especially after the construction of the Pustertal railway in 1871, tourism became increasingly more important. This development was favoured by natural sites of outstanding beauty such as the Pragser Wildsee lake, Plätzwiese, the famous Three Peaks, and the thermal baths of Bad Altprags. One of the most famous promoters of early tourism in Tyrol, Emma Hellensteiner, commonly known as Lady Emma, was from Niederdorf.
