The wonderful city in Eisacktal has a good reputation as meeting point for artists. Apart from the monastery, it offers many other sights such as the beautiful Säben Monastery and obviously also lots of recommendable restaurants, where gourmets surely get their money’s worth.

Klausen has always attracted artists and poets and it has often been a motive for paintings, pictures, stories and songs. The picturesque city is situated between the rock of Säben and the course of the river Eisack. The townscape is characterized by beautiful and colourful facades, overtopped by Gothic churches.
