Attractions in Klausen and surroundings

Säben monastery

Säben monastery

The Benedictine convent Säben high above Klausen is the landmark of the city. Its chapels and wall systems can be visited on a short hike. This monastery is used today by cloistered nuns.

Dürer stone

When Albrecht Dürer made a stopover in 1494 in Klausen, the fledgling artist was inspired by the landscape. A footpath leads today to the slopes of the Tschan Mountain, where on a bench beside a monument you can share the feelings of the master.

In addition to the Apostle Church from the late Gothic period and the Capuchin church this richly designed church is worth a visit, which received its present form in the Baroque period.

Ötzi in Bozen

The South Tyrol Archaeological Museum houses many insightful findings and witnesses of a long past. But it achieved its worldwide fame as last home of the Iceman Ötzi.

Brixen Cathedral

The Cathedral of Brixen dedicated to the Assumption of Mary and the Holy Kassian. The Baroque splendor of this building is a symbol of the old bishop town on the Eisack, which arouses admiration with its clear geometry not only among believers and art lovers.
