Region: Meran and environs
Numerous participating cultural sites, free guided tours and an exciting programme – this event is a must for culture lovers and for those who are interested in art and history.
12th October 2019, in occasion of the transnational project “Alpine Road of Romanesque Art – Stairway to heaven”, is the Romanesque Day. Between Burgeis in Vinschgau and Tramin, you can visit 25 cultural sites and participate in more than 50 guided tours for free.
One of these worth-seeing churches, chapels and monasteries is St. Kathrein church in Hafling. She was built in an exposed location on Tschögglberg high plateau and dates back to the year 1202. Legend tells that the church was built by a giant. At the same time, another giant built the Langfenn church, which was the start of a conflict.
During the Romanesque Day in Hafling, you can learn more about the architectural and artistic peculiarities of the church as well as about exciting legends.
The participants can access the church with a shuttle service. Some sites also offer a varied programme. The day ends with an evening event in Glurns (from 7 pm).
