Surrounded by the Laugen mountain and the Mendelkamm ridge, the Alta Val di Non/Deutschnonsberg is situated in a particularly interesting area. Geographically part of the Val di Non Valley, it forms an enclave of the province of Trentino within the boundaries of South Tyrol. Until recently Proves/Proveis and Lauregno/Laurein (two of the villages in Deutschnonsberg) could only be entered from the neighboring area.
Since the Middle Ages, these villages were known as pilgrimage sites, and the neighboring localities of Fondo, Rumo and Cles were more closely connected to Merano/Meran. Over the centuries, Deutschnonsberg increasingly became a place of cultural exchange, attracting the attention of ethnologists and researchers studying the coexistence of border cultures.
The local tourist office in Deutschnonsberg supports such research, organizing exchanges, conferences and events. One of these events is the walk from Felixer Weiher lake to San Felice/St. Felix, with its spectacular waterfall.
