Archeoparc Velturno

There are two interesting excavation sites in the Valle Isarco valley which finds date back to the Neolithic Age (5000 BC).

The climatically favoured area in the Valle Isarco valley with its sunny slopes was already settled in the Neolithic Age. This is documented by findings, which were partly made in the middle of the village centres. Two of them, in Velturno (Feldthurns) and Villandro (Villanders), approx. 12 km apart, were each dedicated to an Archeoparc, a museum structure that can also be visited today.

The Archeoparc Velturno was opened after about 20 years of excavations in the Tanzgasse area. Gravesites and remains of pottery production, agriculture and livestock breeding were found here, some date back to 5000 BC. Some of the finds are exhibited on the ground floor of Velturno Castle, while finds from the Copper Age (2500 - 2200 BC) can be admired in the Archeoparc Velturno, protected by two modern buildings. The exhibition is called "SteinReich - Reich der Steine" (Stone's Kingdom). And how to reach the Archeoparc Velturno? It is located in the centre of the village, in the Tanzgasse 26, near the parish church.

Currently, access may be subject to certain restrictions.
