    Bezienswaardigheden in Zuid-Tirol

    Zuid-Tirol is bijzonder rijk aan verhalen die zich slingeren rond geheime locaties en ongewone natuurlijke formaties. Bezienswaardigheden, zoals de heksenbankjes op de Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm, vertellen verhalen van heksen en koningen, terwijl krachtplekken, zoals de "Stoanerne Mandln" met meer dan honderd cairns of de oude ruïnes op de heuvel van Castelfeder, bezoekers uitnodigen om te ontspannen en diep adem te halen. Unieke natuurlijke formaties zoals de aardpiramides zijn plaatsen die een wandeling en verkenning waard zijn.

    S. Jakob Church in Söles near Glurns/ Glorenza
    Glurns/Glorenza, Vinschgau/Val Venosta

    The earliest mentions date back to 1220 and 1249. In 1499 the church was set on fire after the Battle of the Calven and was rebuilt as a Gothic church in 1570/1580. Excavations brought to light surprising results in the form of a predecessor church from the 6th/7th and 8th centuries. The patrocinium, however, points to the 9th century. Furthermore, parts of frescoes from the time before the first mentioning of the church were found, which turned out to be picture decorations of the Romanesque predecessor church and are of excellent artistic quality.

    Zwölferturm tower at Sterzing
    Sterzing/Vipiteno, Sterzing/Vipiteno and environs

    The famous landmark of Sterzing, the city tower, is widely known as “Zwölferturm”. Its name is attributed to the fact that its bell rings the citizens for lunchbreak. Consisting of gray granite blocks from the area, it was erected over the city gate from 1468 to 1472 according to the design of Hans Feur. Two marble tablets above the archway remind us of the laying of the foundation stone by the Duke Sigismund of Austria back in 1469. It became a symbol of the economic and cultural boom in the city in the north of South Tyrol and has established itself to this day as the symbol for the city of Sterzing. 

    At certain events, the tower can also be visited also from the inside, e.g. during the Cristmas Market, in summer during the lantern parties or at the famous dumpling festival ("Knödelfest").

    French Graveyard in St. Leonhard/S. Leonardo
    St.Leonhard in Passeier/San Leonardo in Passiria, Meran/Merano and environs

    In November 1809 thousands of soldiers from Napoleon’s army advanced over the Jaufenpass and into the Passeiertal Valley. They were heading for Meran. At St. Leonhard, however, there was a violent confrontation with Passeier insurgents, 22 of whom were killed, while 200 soldiers and 30 officers were reported dead on the French side.

    According to subsequent accounts, the dead Frenchmen were buried in an old cemetery – probably a plague cemetery – at the edge of St. Leonhard. In the anniversary year of 1959, 150 years after the rebellion, the local company of marksmen affixed a marble tablet there. The French Embassy to this day sends funds for the maintenance of the cemetery, with the French tricolore flying over the grass.

    No trace was found of the dead Frenchmen during an archaeological excavation carried out in 2009. This seemed to confirm earlier doubts about any mass grave containing French soldiers. But in 2013 the French Ministry of Defence arranged for further excavations; these actually found a knife and the remains of bones and articles of clothing, which suggest such a grave.
