Katharina Lanz – the brave girl from Spinges
Spinges has an exciting and eventful past. Katharina Lanz – the “brave girl from Spinges” and heroine of the Tyrolean struggle for freedom – found her way into the historiography of the Napoleonic Wars in 1797. Together with the Tyrolean freedom fighters, she defended the inhabitants of Wipptal valley with a pitchfork. A monument in Spinges remembers her still today.
