Sightseeing in Lana and Environs

Some 40 churches, chapels, monasteries and convents in the area, dating to the dawn of the previous millennium pay tribute to Lana’s important historical and religious role. These include the early medieval St. Margareth Kapelle chapel and the opulent interiors of the Pfarrkirche in Niederlana parish church, including the late Gothic altar built by Hans Schnatterpeck.

A visit to the many castles and fortresses in the surrounding area is a journey through history as seen in the art, painting and craftsmanship, and the numerous medieval works of art that are located along the hiking trails. The museums of Lana and Environs also reflect the importance of agriculture in the area. Despite the impact of civilization, nature still prevails. The Gaulschlucht gorge, the Falschauer biotope in Lana, and the Skulpturenwanderweg trail, as well as the Kränzelhof – Sevens Gardens estate in Cermes/Tscherms, all exude a sense of peace and tranquility.
