The picturesque old town – the only one preserved in the Venosta Valley – has only 900 inhabitants. It was founded over 700 years ago by the Tyrolean regent Meinhard II. Probably, it is its quietness that makes the smallest and oldest town of South Tyrol so special and charming. As the saying goes, it’s from the small barrels that good wine comes. Good as that medieval scent, still breathed in many corners and alleys of Glurns, where one can rediscover the traces of time, protected by the ancient walls surrounding the town. It is thanks to them that on the old market there’s still hustle of the merchants who recite aloud the virtues of their goods. While in summer, the streets of the town get filled with inebriating festivals.
