The three-valley municipality of Racines is one of the largest of South Tyrol and boasts several attractions such as the Stanghe waterfalls.
The large-scale community and former mining municipality of Racines comprises the Valgiovo, the Val Racines and the Val Ridanna valleys. Stretching from 950 to 1,500 m asl, Racines is a member of the “Alpine Pearls”, a network of destinations able to offer holidays in environmentally conscious fashion. The Passo del Giovo divides the Stubai Alps with Cima dell’Accia, Monte Altacroce and Cima Libera from the Sarentino Alps.
Castel Wolfsthurn and its Provincial Museum for Hunting and Fishing, the Provincial Museum of Mining of Monteneve, the S. Maddalena miners’ chapel, the ruins of Reifenegg Castle and the Gilfenklamm canyon make your holidays an unforgettable experience. In winter, however, the Racines-Giovo skiing area is the greatest attraction in the municipality.
