Fans of culture will find a variety of sights to see in the Ortles region, from the Messner Mountain Museum to the historically significant Churburg Castle. The cultural landscape of the Venosta Valley border region is also shaped by the Stelvio National Park, which includes South Tyrol’s highest mountain – the Ortles – and a fascinating collection of glaciers. Culture and tradition still play a special role in the rural Ortles communities, as customs like the Zussl Race, Klosn and Pfluagziachn show.
