Chiusa the picturesque village
The artist town of Chiusa, once residence of the bishop and one of the most diverse holiday destinations in the Eisack Valley offers besides the monastery of Sabiona and the Catholic church of St. Andrew many other interesting sights. Chiusa invites you to a walk along the famous "Eisacktal Chestnut Trail" - a 60 km lang way across the sunny slopes from the monastery Neustift in Brixen to the magnificent castle of Runkelstein.
The way up to the top of the monastery Sabiona may be difficult, but from its highest point you have a fantastic view of the Sarntal Alps on the one, and the Dolomites on the other side.
Inside the monastery you walk through the walls of one of the most important bishoprics between 800 - 1000, before it was transferred to Brixen.
Chiusa is the capital of "Törggelen". Beside the many scattered farms which will open their doors and kitchensin autumn, you will find a hearty meal in our "Törggele"- menu.
