Tradition and culture

The manifold history of the South Tyrol can be seen through the many historical, natural and archaeological points of interest.
An archaeological nature trail in St. Lorenzen gives an insight into Roman times, the castles of Taufers and Sonnenburg are witnesses to the Middle Ages. The mining museum at Prettau shows the work of the miner, the ethnographic museum in Dietenheim tells its visitors about the daily routine of farmers in old times. You can also gain also an insight into modern life and farming traditions. South Tyrolean culture and customs are celebrated the whole year round at traditional festivals and ceremonies.
Above all, it is perhaps the culinary world that shows the plurality of our culture with a mix of Mediterranean and local farm cooking.
