Culture in the Ahrntal:
from spiritual to secular

Kasern - Cultural diversity

Do you want to know what Kasern and the Ahrntal have to offer in the cultural field? E. g. the church Heilig-Geist, built in 1455 and consecrated by Nikolaus Cusanus.

More secular matters are treaten in the mine of Prettau. The changes of the copper-mining can be explored in a very interesting way. Furthermore in the Steinhaus Mining Museum the visitors get aware of how the mining influenced people's life in the Ahrntal.

Also the mineral-museum in St. Johann dedicates its exposition to stones: minerals deriving from the Zillertaler Alps and the Hohen Tauern enchant the visitors.

Marantha - that is the name of the crib-museum in Luttach. Marantha means: Our lord comes! The museum wants to contribute to a wider approach of Jesus' coming.

Last but not least we do recommend a trip to Sand in Taufers to visit the Castle Taufers. It is one of the most beautiful castles of South Tyrol as well as the symbol of the valley.
