A medieval feel and modern charm. This is what visitors get from the old town of Sterzing - once a stronghold for the Fugger family. A little gem surrounded by a magnificent mountain backdrop.

Sterzing has been voted one of the most beautiful small towns in Italy. The people of Sterzing are particularly proud of the gothic Town Hall.

Numerous traditional concerts, the Sterzinger Joghurttage (Yoghurt Festival), the lantern parties, the Knödelfest (Dumpling Festival) and much more make your holiday a cultural experience too. Meadows, forests, mountain pastures and glaciers: a largely unspoilt natural environment. Here, town and country complement each other to perfection.

Even in the summer you can travel comfortably via cable car from Sterzing (948 m) to the Rosskopf (2,176 m), Sterzing's sun terrace. The Wipptal (Wipp Valley) offers numerous hiking trails and paths for all levels of ability and leads right up to the glacier regions of the 3000 m-high mountains.

The many cultivated mountain pastures and mountain huts entice hikers. Cyclists can also get what they want here: from mountain bike trails to valley cycle paths and road bike routes, there is something for everyone from extreme bikers to leisure cyclists.
