Discover the famous Carolingian frescoes in St. Benedict’s, Marienberg Abbey, the Fürstenburg, the nearby medieval town of Glurns, the Vinschger Museum and the Churburg in Schluderns, with its famous armory.

The Churburg in Schluderns will appeal to your whole family. If you take the Vinschger railway to Schluderns, even your ride to the castle will be a great adventure in its own right!

St. Nicholas’ Chapel

  But if you would prefer to enjoy culture right outside your front door, we would suggest taking a short walk to St. Nicholas’ Chapel or to Benedictine Marienberg Abbey above Burgeis, with its Baroque church, crypt and well-preserved 12th-century frescoes.

  Also worth a visit and of great historical interest are the Grauner Tower in Reschensee and the smallest town in South Tyrol, Glurns, with its fully preserved medieval town walls.

  A litter further away, proudly enthroned above the entrance to the Schnalstal Valley, is Schloss Juval. It is now the home of famous mountaineer, Reinhold Messner. Part of the castle is open to the public, housing an exhibition of masks which Messner collected while on his world-wide travels.

  A little further to the south, a visit to the botanical gardens of Schloss Trauttmansdorff is a definite must for every botany lover. Gardens from around the world are brought together here in a single garden!
