Adventure holidays in Innichen
The pretty town is situated at the foot of the mountain Haunold in the eastern part of South Tyrol, next to the Austrian border. Innichen has a quite long history full of exciting, but also warlike events.
The Romans were the first ones to build up some settlements and laid the foundation for civilization in this area. After the breakdown of the Roman Empire and throughout the Middle Ages, Innichen experienced great changes.
Today, for example three churches attest to the wealth and the importance of town in these times. The smallest of them is part of a Franciscan monastery, which still today is administrated by the monks. The second one is the baroque basilica consecrated to St. Michael. The most important landmark of Innichen is the Collegiate Church, sometimes simply called “Dome of Innichen”.
But these are not the only treasures to be found in Innichen. For active vacationers, the mountain Haunold offers a lot of activities: hiking, biking and climbing in summer, skiing or sledging in winter.
And throughout the seasons you can breathe the magic air of past eras and enjoy the purity of untouched nature.
