Holiday in Feldthurns: mountain idyll at a middle mountain range
The South Tyrolean village Feldthurns lies on a sunny terrace above the central mountain range of the Isarco Valley and is dominated by the powerful Königanger tip. The mountain peak has a height of 2,439 meters and at his foot extensive chestnut groves grow along. The more than 3,300 chestnut trees have been for long time a landmark of the place and with the Keschtnweg a well known excursion runs across the landscape. The parish church of the “Assumption” is in the center of Feldthurns. The church was built in 1112 and rebuilt in the 16th century. The most striking feature of the Gothic Church of St. Lawrence is the Leaning Tower, which is strongly reminiscent of its counterpart in the Tuscan city of Pisa.
Hiking and cultural pleasure in Feldthurns
The most famous monument in the South Tyrolean town is Velthurns Castle, which was built in the 16th century as a summer residence of the bishops. The beautiful castle is equipped with ornate carpentry and a gilded coffered ceiling. Spend a visit during your holiday in Feldthurns at the Archeoparc on the sun terrace. The excavations show at the museum that the region has been inhabited since 5,000 years. With the Latzfonder Alm, the Radlsee and the Schrambacher waterfall fantastic hiking destinations are located in the municipality of Feldthurns. The cultural offer in the location is determined in the summer months by colorful farmers markets, open-air performances and the experience weeks “Keschtnigl”.
