A cultural holiday in Val Venosta - South Tyrol

It hardly comes as a surprise that Val Venosta, a key transit region, is rich in cultural treasures and sights. Archaeological findings from pre-Christian times, as for example those in Ganglegg / Sluderno, or the spectacular discovery of Ötzi, the Stone Age warrior, prove that humans have been settling in the holiday region of Val Venosta - South Tyrol for thousands of years. Explore the numerous precious remnants from ancient times during your family or hiking holiday in South Tyrol. We recommend visiting one of the many architectural treasures: the wide range of churches, monasteries and chapels as well as the medieval castles and manor houses in Val Venosta in South Tyrol are definitely worthwhile. Apart from that you should also set out to discover the picturesque villages of the region - the village of Glorenza is a real gem in upper Val Venosta. Glorenza is the smallest city of the country and famous for its fully preserved city walls.

Exciting expeditions during your holiday in Val Venosta

A holiday in Val Venosta has a lot to offer. A visit to Reinhold Messner's Juval Castle high above the entry to Val Senales is well worth a visit during your family holiday in South Tyrol. The fortress is part of the Messner Mountain Museum project and displays exhibits dedicated to the myth of the mountain and its religious dimension. Once you are in Alta Val Venosta, you will certainly come across a landmark of South Tyrol and the most famous motive for postcards, the church tower of Lago di Resia. When a reservoir was built in 1950 a whole village was flooded and everything except the church tower was buried by the water. If you fancy heading for the heights, the serpentines of the Stelvio pass, the second highest pass of Europe with a difference in altitude of 1,880m, are something you should not miss during your holiday in Val Venosta. The young and old will be impressed by the mighty Coira Castle near Sluderno, home to the biggest private collection of arms in the world. Let the eventful history of South Tyrol cast its spell on you during your holiday in Val Venosta - you will be thrilled!
