Nature and culture experiences between history and modernity

Places to see in Lana, Tscherms, Burgstall and Gargazon.

Culture means combining old times and new sensations. Diving into other worlds and building a bridge from yesterday to tomorrow. Especially the church-historical culture is deeply rooted in Lana. About 40 churches, chapels and monasteries bear witness to this, from the early medieval St. Margareth Chapel to the late Gothic Schnatterpeck altar in the parish church of Niederlana. 

The numerous castles and fortresses in the surrounding villages can be reached via historic paths, along which pilgrims, merchants and knights once walked. The museums in the area, on the other hand, reflect the importance of agriculture in the area. In the midst of all, modernity also makes its way, for example on the Skulpturenwanderweg trail with its 33 sculptures made by contemporary artists. 

In the region of Lana, culture merges directly with nature. Cross the seven gardens of the Kränzelhof in Tscherms. Listen to the sound of the river water in the Falschauer biotope. Walk over the suspension bridges and through the tunnels of the Gaulschlucht gorge. From the car-free Mount Vigiljoch to the picturesque orchards in the valley, Lana and its surroundings hold countless natural sites that will make you marvel.
