Italy’s northernmost town

On your first visit to the town it cannot go unnoticed: it's the Zwölferturm, the town’s most striking landmark. It has brought together the old and new town since 1472 and on the vibrant shopping street, dotted with colourful medieval facades, you can explore the most hidden and  important spots of the town. Take a stroll and you'll come across churches and artistic treasures from the Gothic period. Do you know that Sterzing looks absolutely stunning from above? Go up the Rosskopf mountain! It only takes you few minutes to reach the height of 2,189 m by gondola and experience the local culture, cuisine, hiking and skiing adventures.

Not far from the town, there are some of South Tyrol's most notable castles. Wolfsthurn Castle, South Tyrol’s only baroque castle, houses the Museum of Hunting and Fishing. Burg Reifenstein stands on a craggy mountainside. The castle is divided into ten rooms, which you can see for yourself on a tour. On the opposite side above Sterzing, you can marvel at Castle Sprechenstein and its unique architectural features. 

Sterzing is also known for its past as an important mining town. The life of the miners who used to work in the area is exhibited in the South Tyrol Museum of Mining in the Ridnauntal valley, some kilometers away from Sterzing.
