In the footsteps of history
The Alta Val d’Isarco is adorned by many castles, medieval fortresses and manor houses. Castle Reifenstein dates from the 12th century and is a popular hiking destination in the area. It is one of the best preserved castles in South Tyrol and is of particular importance from an art and historical point of view. During your holiday in Alta Val d’Isarco you may take part in a guided tour and learn interesting details about the construction of the castle. The castles of Sprechenstein and Welfenstein were built later, but are also worth a visit. The parish church in Stilves and the Church of St. Valentine in the district Valgenäun are further sacred buildings that you can visit during your stay in the holiday region.
