Chiusa/Klausen in the Valle Isarco/Eisacktal
The medieval town in the heart of Alto Adige/Südtirol
The town of Chiusa is located in the heart of the Valle Isarco and is surrounded by fruit trees and wine yards on both sides of the valley, and the breathtaking nature of the Dolomites. The UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites can be reached in 20 minutes by public transportation for free.
Chiusa is also known as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of Italy (Borghi più belli d'Italia). The city of artists hosted the famous artist Albrecht Dürer during his journey through Italy.
The Sabiona Monastery is located on the top of the rock ledge overlooking the city. A nice walk leads up to the monastery, where you can enjoy a great panoramic view.
Chiusa is also known for the “törggelen” tradition. In fall we celebrated this old tradition and it’s the best way to get to know Tyrolean traditions and culinary specialties.
