Holidays in Waidbruck
Just as Kuens near Meran or Kurtinig in southern South Tyrol also Waidbruck ranks among the smallest municipality in the province.
Already during the Roman age there has been a settlement called “Sublavio”, supposedly around a bridge. During the Middle Ages, the area was a popular stop for travellers and pilgrims on the way to the south. Due to its central position Waidbruck is still today an ideal starting point for excursions in all directions – by bike and on foot through the surrounding mountains or with skis to the skiing regions of Seiser Alm and Gröden.
A special suggestion for middle-age-fans: Visible from afar, above Waidbruck there is the Castle Trostburg, dating back to the 12th century. The well-known minnesinger Oswald von Wolkenstein passed spent his childhood there. Today, it hosts the South Tyrolean Castle Museum.
