The Eggental valley offers so much for the inquisitive to discover: ancient farmsteads, even older churches and chapels; natural treasures that remind us (once more) of just how small we humans are: even the history of the earth or the wonders of the stars.
Visitors to this valley, located between the Rosengarten and Latemar massifs, should bring with them a healthy dose of curiosity. Examples of places to explore include the Bletterbach stream, which has been carving its way into the foot of the Weisshorn peak near Aldein/Aldino for millions of years now, leaving behind an impressive gorge that is a must-see; the pilgrimage church of Maria Weissenstein, once visited by Pope John Paul II; or the parish churches of the Eggental villages with their variety of individual features, frescoes and histories. The star village of Steinegg/Collepietra-Gummer/San Valentino takes you off into the realm of the planets, while the farms in the valley show just how much work – and passion – goes into local produce. It is truly easy to set off on a voyage of discovery here in the Eggental valley: into the past, present, or future – both in the heavens and on Earth!
When the stars above Steinegg dance to the sounds of the well-known South Tyrolean band, Mainfelt, 6 gourmet chefs prepare creative delights in old wood-fired ovens in Welschnofen and works of art by local artists come to life at an art performance in Obereggen or Deutschnofen, you know that it’s Eggen Valley’s Culturinarika time!
