Culture & history
PLACES OF INTEREST IN AND AROUND NAUDERS
Naudersberg castle was first mentioned in a document in 1239 as the seat of the Lord of Nauders. From around 1300 it was the seat of a sovereign court and developed into a castle. During the Engadine wars under Duke Siegmund and Emperor Maximilian 1, the castle was extended with fortresses round towers and battlements.
The Sperrfort Nauders was built between 1834 and 1840 on the pass road over the Reschen near the medieval Niklas wall. It is a mighty, five-storey building that was erected as a roadblock to protect the Inn valley from possible troop invasions from Lombardy or the Engadine.
The renovated Kaiserschützenweg was created during the First World War and leads from Nauders Fortress for around 2 kilometres and 500 metres in altitude through the forest to the fortifications. In Nauders Fortress there is an informative memorial to the Kaiserschützen.
Along the Reschen border, an extensive defence line with bunkers, command posts, tank traps, barracks and supply roads was built in the years 1936-1942 to protect against an invasion by Hitler’s Germany. The work continued under the strictest secrecy even after Italy officially joined the alliance.
The road of the past begins at Sperrfort Nauders! The old road drops steeply and reaches the Inn at Finstermünz. Here you will find a small chapel, the old customs house and “Sigismundseck”, built by Duke Sigismund, as if glued to the rock. In the middle of the Inn is the old tower with the wooden bridge.
Whether in Samnaun in Switzerland or Livigno in Italy – both places are known for their duty free shopping possibilities. High quality products, trends and more can be found in the numerous shops.
The spa town in South Tyrol is impressive with its Alpine-Mediterranean flair. The old town of Meran invites you to stroll through small boutiques and shops. Highlights include the gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle, the thermal baths and various museums, castles and palaces.
The markets in South Tyrol are a long-standing tradition that still exists today. At the many weekly markets in the Vinschgau you will find regional specialities, clothing and traditional products from local producers.
In Innsbruck you will find sights such as the golden roof, the Imperial Palace, the Court Garden or the Alpine Zoo. Stroll along Maria-Theresien-Straße through the historic old town with a view of the magnificent Alpine panorama.
The Swarovski crystal world is a popular destination near Innsbruck. The artistic installations impress in the interior rooms of the giant or in the extensive garden. Marvel at the magic of crystal.
