Freienfeld: on an open field

Strictly speaking, Freienfeld is one of the youngest municipalities in South Tyrol, because it arose in the twenties from the consolidation of Stilfes and Trens.

These villages are located at about 940 m above sea level in a valley called Wipptal, to the south of Sterzing, where the two streams of Pfitsch and Ridnaun flow into the main river Eisack.

Freienfeld is quite small, but nice and its offers more than you would perhaps expect, primarily cultural sights. Pilgrims, but also lovers of sacred art should visit the late Gothic pilgrimage church Maria Trens, which is one of the most important throughout South Tyrol. Also, the parish church in Stilfes or the church of St. Valentin in the village part Valgenäun are worth seeing.

A special tip for modern knights and fans of the middle age: the Reifenstein Castle dating back to the 12th century, as well as Sprechenstein and Welfenstein.
