Surrounded by rustic farms, forested slopes and mighty peaks, the two villages are located in the eastern part of Pustertal: Welsberg at 1,087 m of altitude directly on the valley floor – Taisten a bit higher on a sunny terrace at the entrance of Gsies Valley. Be it shopping tours, easy walking tours or cultural excursions to worth-seeing churches and castles – here everyone will find what he likes.

Sights in Welsberg-Taisten

Welsberg, mainly, has a long history as the area was settled already in the Bronze Age. One of the most important sights is Welsperg Castle a bit off the village centre. The oldest parts of the castle were erected in the 12th century. In summer and in autumn, it opens the doors for visitors. Time and time again, there are concerts, exhibitions and other events too.

A special experience is the circular tour to the castle, that also passes by the nearby ruin of Thurn Castle. If you are interested in art and culture, you can visit the birthplace of Baroque painter Paul Troger and the two parish churches of Welsberg and Taisten.

Active holidays in summer & winter

If you prefer tranquillity, Welsberg and Taisten offer numerous comfortable alternatives. Endless hiking and walking paths lead through the idyllic forests and meadows the whole year round, with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Famous destinations are for instance Mt. Lutterkopf, Taistner Vorderalm hut or Mt. Rudlhorn. Excursions to the nearby mountain world of the Dolomites and discovery tours in the rural landscape are recommended too.

In summer, cyclists are offered the wonderful Pustertal cycle path, leading across Welsberg and arriving until Lienz in East Tyrol in eastern direction. In winter, the ski areas of Kronplatz and 3 Zinnen Dolomites will be within your reach. They can both be reached by train, the Ski Pustertal Express, connecting the ski areas with trains every 30 minutes and stopping in Welsberg too. Not to forget the beautiful cross-country ski trails in the valley of Gsies – a real winter sports paradise.
