The municipality of three valleys in the heart of South Tyrol
Nestled in the valleys of Valgiovo, Val Racines and Val Ridanna, the municipality of Racines offers unique experiences in unspoilt, wild nature.
Among the most striking sights in the area are the 15-metre-high Stanghe Falls: cross wooden footbridges and bridges to enter the gorge, surrounded by a backdrop of white marble.
Next, Castel Wolfsthurn, a Baroque building with 365 windows, which has housed the Museo Provinciale della Caccia e della Pesca (Hunting and Fishing Museum) since 1996. The noble halls inside preserve the original 12th-century furnishings and a rich collection of historical and artistic objects relating to hunting.
Castel Reifenegg is a ruined structure with just the imposing keep still standing. Featuring two-metre-thick walls and a few arched windows, the ruin is surrounded by coniferous forest.
Racines offers memorable moments in every season. In winter, it turns into a paradise for sports enthusiasts, boasting ski slopes and cross-country trails. In spring and summer, the climate is ideal for hiking, climbing and mountain bike tours. Finally, in autumn, rustic, cosy refuges satisfy hungry palates with traditional flavours.
