Founded by the Fugger family, the historic town of Sterzing today charms its visitors with a combination of medieval flair and modern charm. Nestled between the nearby villages of Freienfeld and Pfitsch, Sterzing is a sparkling jewel in the heart of a stunning landscape dominated by untouched alpine meadows and forests, traditional mountain huts and impressive glaciers. Sterzing is a perfect example of how town and country can merge and complement each other in the most wonderful way.

  The town of Sterzing was founded in the Middle Ages by the Fugger family and has retained until today its irresistible romantic and artistic charm. Lying at 948m above sea level, Sterzing is the main town of the southern Wipp Valley and has a population of 5,800. This small alpine town, which once served as a refuge for kings and emperors, is today a sparkling jewel rich in ancient art, boasting in particular numerous wonderful bay windows as well as elegant boutiques.
  Freienfeld is located a few kilometres south of Sterzing and was not founded until 1928 when the independent communes of Stilfes, Trens and Mauls were merged to create the commune of Freienfeld. The most famous part of Freienfeld is without doubt the Maria Trens pilgrimage centre. Freienfeld lies 940 m above sea level, nestled in the midst of a breathtaking landscape. Thanks to its central location, the commune is the perfect base for excursions both into the surrounding area as well as further afield.
  Pfitsch is one of the most northerly communes in Italy and lies close to the border with neighbouring Austria. The main agglomeration of the commune is the village of Wiesen which is located at the entrance to the 23 km-long Pfitsch Valley. Surrounded by imposing mountains of 3,000m and more, the high alpine Pfitsch Valley is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the untouched nature. During the winter months, the valley is the ideal place for cross-country skiing while in summer the area blossoms into a haven for hikers.
