The Rhaetian Railway (Rhäthische Bahn)

Do you remember dreaming of a landscape complete with high mountains and lush meadows, with farmhouses and lots of cows? And in the mountains there would be enormous glaciers and small blue lakes? And every now and then the small train would disappear into a tunnel only to reappear again a little while later crossing an imposing bridge above a deep gorge? And didn't you wish for lots and lots of tracks and points so you could think up new travel possibilities and enjoy new experiences over and over again?

Gardalake

The great expanse of water is divided morphologically into two parts. The narrow northern part is flanked by steep mountains, which create the aspect of a wild fjord, while the southern part fans out into a broad shallow basin on which the long, slender peninsula of Sirmione sits.

The Gardens of Trautmannsdorff Castle - Meran

A mild climate and a wealth of southern vegetation can sometimes work wonders. Already around the middle of the 19th century, physicians took advantage of this when they were treating spa guests seeking recreation. The most prominent visitor was the Austrian empress Sisi, who actually used Trauttmansdorff Castle as her winter domicile...

Vintschger Museum Schluderns

Two permanent exhibitions can be seen in the Vintschger Museum: “Archaic Vinschgau” (Archaeology of a Valley in the “Magical Rhaetian Triangle”), “Wasserwosser” (The “Waale” irrigation system in the dry Vinschgau region). To supplement the exhibitions, excursions to prehistoric settlements and a tour of the “Quair Waal” nature trail are offered.

ArcheoParc Schnals – Ötzi Museum

The ArcheoParc Schnals is located at an altitude of 1,500 m in Unser Frau in Schnals in the Vinschgau region. In this open-air archaeology park the past is brought to life. In South Tyrol’s first active archaeology museum, everything focuses on the way of life of the people who inhabited the Schnals valley in Ötzi’s time.

Juval Castle – Reinhold Messner

Juval Castle rises up from steep rocky ground at an airy altitude. In the summer of 1983, Reinhold Messner purchased the semi-ruined Juval Castle on the back of the mountain of the same name, between the Schnals Valley and the Vinschgau region. In addition to private art collections that tell of his travels through various cultures, such as the extensive Tibet Collection or the masks from four continents, the castle itself can also be toured.

The pestilence, famer-wars and religious differences raged...

Glurns, the smallest town in the Alps

The the smallest town in Tyrol and Italy, an architectural jewel that is loved by everyone who has ever been there. The perfectly preserved circular wall with three massive towers and a number of defense towers surrounds picturesque alleys and corners, private homes from the 16th century, and arcades with a very special charm.

Water Channel Pathways

The so-called "Waale" are very old man-made water channels, still used in many places to irrigate fields and meadows. Along their course, the water can be diverted to various plots of land by means of mini sluice gates. A special regulation called the 'Waalordnung' determines which farmer is entitled to how much water and it is administered by a person appointed by the farmers...
