Holidays in Karneid

Near Karneid, the valley of Eggental branches off the valley of Eisacktal. Due to its position, Karneid is ideal for a varied holiday in South Tyrol: Hikers and bikers will love it just as wine and culture lovers.

The various localities of the municipality of Karneid are spread over different levels of altitude: The districts Kardaun and Blumau lie down in the valley, the village of Karneid a bit above and the districts Steinegg and Gummer in panoramic positions even a bit higher.

Cultural sights

If you spend your holidays in Karneid, you should absolutely visit Karneid Castle built in the 13th century. It guards the entrance of Eggental Valley on a steep rock and can be visited from April until October with a guide. A visit of Museum Steinegg is possible too with a guide: The museum tour offers interesting insights into the everyday life of people that had lived in this region in former times.
