Val Venosta and the holiday villages Castelbello and Ciardes and are still characterized by everyday customs and traditions. In the marble villages, where artists and artisans live and work, old ways are well-preserved, but will continue to be further developed and connected with new ways and trends.
On the first Sunday of Lent the mystical Disk Flinging called Scheibenschlagen
takes place on the Tartscher Bühel with a fire ritual, witches and magic formulas. Among the cultural highlights are the solemn processions and festivals such as on Ascension Day. That is why the Sacred Heart fires
are set atop of the mountain peaks every third Sunday after Pentecost.
The Castelbello Asparagus Weeks
number among the cultural and culinary highlights of Venosta Valley; accompanied by the white wines
from the slopes of Monte Sole. An autumnal highlight is the traditional Törggelen
during harvest time.
