Tradition and Customs

Experience Customs in the Silandro-Lasa Holiday Region

Venosta Valley today carries forth some ancient traditions which date back to the pre-Christian era. Thus, besides contemplative processions, wedding celebrations and customs such as the Easter tomb, archaic fires and noise rituals such as the Scheibenschlagen (launcing of burning disks), the Klosn in Stelvio/Stilfs or the Zusslrennen race in Prato/Prad can be observed – all customs that express a farewell to winter and welcoming of the spring.

In early summer, the artisan village of Lasa invites guests to the big Marble and Apricots festival in the village center. After that the gourmets and nature lovers move on to Venosta Valley’s main city’s pedestrian zone to see the Schlanderser Bauernfenster (every two years). And on the third Sunday after Pentecost, the Sacred Heart Fires on the mountains attract countless onlookers. Even the traditional market days in the Fall enjoy great popularity and are true celebrations. The St. Nikolaus procession in December and the Krampus rituals are equally popular with locals and guests. Numerous Christmas markets invite you to experience this contemplative time, and to taste and enjoy the specialities.
