Holidays in Schluderns
Schluderns is a picturesque small village situated beneath a mighty and famous castle: the Churburg, which houses the largest collection of knight’s armours throughout Europe.
The village itself attracts because of its worth seeing town centre with several inviting inns and nice bars. Furthermore, in and around Schluderns there are numerous hiking paths and varied range of trips – always having an impressive view to the surrounding mountains with Mt. Ortler in the centre.
Undoubtedly, the Churburg Castle is the main attraction of Schluderns. The building is in such a good condition, that a noble family still lives there. Therefore, not all premises are open to the public. With a guided tour you can see the richly decorated foyer and the arcades – and of course, the armaments.
Another sight in Schluderns is the parish church of St. Katharina. There are exhibited some statues of saints, which were made with skeletal parts found in Roman catacombs and which were decorated with elaborate robes and attributes of knights – slightly macabre, but fascinating.
