Taufers im Münstertal is located in Vinschgau, directly on the border with Rhaeto-Romanic Switzerland and is the westernmost village of South Tyrol. The national border directly crosses the valley of Münstertal, also called Val Mustair, whereas large part of the valley is Swiss.

Finally, also lovers of art and culture get their money’s worth. The most important sights of Taufers im Münstertal are the Romanesque St. Johan church, dating back to the 9th century. You can see late Romanesque frescoes and a fully coloured groined vault with Byzantine influences.

St. Michael church near the cemetery houses a worth-seeing parish museum since a few years. Also, you should make an excursion to Switzerland and see the famous Romanesque Müstair Monastery that is part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

The 8-churches hike establishes a connection between culture and physical activity. The 3-hours tour leads along churches of different eras and cultural gems. We also recommend the Urfichten circular hike, where you can see particularly old spruces.

Secular buildings, such as Rotund Castle dating back to the year 900 or the ruin of Reichenberg are worth a visit too. If you can still not get enough of castles and knights, you should visit the nearby Churburg Castle in Schluderns, with the largest private armoury chamber in Europe.
