Attractions in the Schnalstal Valley

Centuries-old farms, churches and Ötzi

During a hike, you can stop off to visit farms and mountain farms that are centuries old. Guided tours will enable the visitor to get to know the life and history of these ancient farms. You will learn a lot of interesting and fascinating things during a guided tour of historic Monte S. Caterina/Katharinaberg or the former Carthusian Monastery in Certosa/Karthaus. The pilgrimage church of Madonna di Senales/Unser Frau and the small church in Vernago/Vernagt are well worth a visit. Juval Castle, the summer residence of the famous mountaineer, Reinhold Messner, and the site where Ötzi the glacier mummy was discovered, are the highlights of the Valley.
