The Age of Knights in Schluderns

When swords clink, lances break, armours shimmer, horses jump through fire, kids pinch candy at the market, jugglers laugh and everyone is in awe of the acrobatic stunts performed by the artists, then the Middle Ages have come back … the Age of Knights in Schluderns!

Mighty and impressive towers Castle Churburg over the sunny quiet village of Schluderns in Vinschau, which lies at the foot of Mt. Sonnenberg. In the surrounding of this romantically tradtional place lie the villages Mals, Eyrs, Prad am Stilfserjoch and Glurns – the only town in Vinschgau and the smallest in South Tyrol.

The call of the Middle Ages

Castle Churburg is owned by the Lord of Trapp and worldfamous for its fully equipped chamber of armours: the largest armour collection in Europe. On the lawns surrounding the village core, the South Tyrolean Knight Games are organised every summer, with real knights in shining armours, on horsebacks, competing at different games; besides a medieval market with its quaint stands, breathtaking shows and knight parades. Here knights from many nations gather to challenge each other in fight. Do not miss this unique spectacle!

Fascinating and a little bit macabre is the gothic Church of Saint Catherine; here the statues of saints are created of skeleton-parts which were found in Roman catacombs.

 

Those who like to hike, find in Schluderns numerous paths leading through the village, the orchards, the green meadows and lead into the heart of a 100 hectare large biotope, with information boards illustrating the rare animals and plants of Vinschgau. Walk along the ancient paths following the irrigation channels which helped to water the area once. The so-called „Waalwege“ lead through shady forests, over sunny clearances and up to vast heights. Passionate sportsmen and -women and adventurers alike can test here there skills at archery or paragliding.

Whatever it is that you plan to do in Schluderns - whether you challenge a born-and-bred knight for a duel, enjoy the pristine landscapes or relax in a hotel in Schluderns - you find the local warmth and hospitality everywhere you go.
