Vibrant past

Plunge into the culture and history

The cultural landscape of the Vinschgau valley is rich in traditions and testimonies of the past. This cultural wealth is something that we still draw from to this day, and the inspiration for modern artistic treasures can be found everywhere as you travel through South Tyrol; the fortresses, castle, monasteries, residences and museums, the contemporary witnesses of our development. Go on your own expedition and get to know the land and its people.
