Andreis is a small town that is only 455 metres above sea level, but has a landscape that looks like a mountain. It is located in the Friulian Dolomites Natural Park, near the beginning of Valcellina. In its typical houses, dark wooden balconies and external staircases make them unique. The streets are made of many stones, which make the village seem even more rustic and cosy.

There is a museum in the village called the Museum of Peasant Art and Civilisation. It displays objects and environments that tell the story of how the people of Andreis lived in the early 1900s. There are reconstructions of kitchens with a fire and a corner cabinet called a cjantonâl, where they kept dishes and food. There is also a part dedicated to the malga, where they made butter and cheese. The museum shows how they worked with wood and bone to make objects such as shoes, combs and snuffboxes. It also shows how they worked in the meadows and in the forest.

Andreis is also known as the 'land of the eagles'. In the visitor centre, there is an exhibition on the park's avifauna and an area for treating injured birds of prey. It is a perfect place for those who love nature and sport. There are many hikes and walks to discover the nature around the village. There is also the Nordic Life Park, where Nordic walking can be practised. In another place called Bosplans, there is an old fountain that supplied water to the village. Near the fountain is a bench with the verses of a Friulian poet named Federico Tavan, who was born in Andreis.
