Traditions and Customs in the Ortles Region

Reinhold Messner, Klosn and Pfluagziachn

Traditions are lived every day in Venosta Valle yand the Ortles holiday region. Ancient traditions can be experienced up close in Stelvio and Prato – at the Zussl race, the Klosn festival, the Maschgertanz carnival celebration or at the Pflugziachn (pulling of the plow). The culture has grown and evolved over time and been complemented by new ideas. It was in this culture-enhancing spirit that Reinhold Messner brought a small piece of Tibet to Solda in the form of his yaks in 1985. Since then, a crowd of onlookers have gathered at the Solda cable car valley station at the end of June each year to accompany the extreme mountaineer in the transhumance (seasonal movement to higher pastures) of his shaggy creatures.
