As an important junction between north and south, the Wipptal valley has a long history. The first settlements date back to ancient times and became important sites for the Roman Empire. For centuries, one of the most important trade routes ran through the Wipptal valley. Even today, mighty castles, palaces and fortresses are witnesses of its strategically favourable location. Nobility, clergy and bourgeoisie left their buildings, whose historical walls are inviting you to take a journey to the past.
