La Val (Italian: La Valle [la ˈvalle]; German: Wengen [ˈvɛŋɛn]) is a comune (municipality) in the province of South Tyrol in northern Italy, located about 45 kilometres (28 mi) northeast of the city of Bolzano.
As of 30 November 2010, it had a population of 1,307 and an area of 39.0 square kilometres (15.1 sq mi).
The village lives of tourism (hiking, mountain climbing, mountain biking) and agriculture. There is no ski tourism, but in winter shuttle buses transport tourists to the nearby ski resorts such as Alta Badia. There are more guests in winter than in summer.
Whereas in earlier decades the agricultural economy was to a large degree self-sufficient, it has become meanwhile more of a monoculture based on cattle.
Down the valley at the Gran Ega river in Pederoa is a handicraft and industrial zone (shoes, textiles).
