The little village of Longostagno is an ideal starting point for promenades in every season.
Located at 970 m asl, Longostagno has become a particularly important place in the 12th century: in 1177 the locality was vested the market rights by the emperor Friedrich Barbarossa. In the same year, for the first time, the S. Ottilia church appers in documents. This sacred building was replaced around 1400 by a more modern building, which has been enlarged in 1876.
From Longostagno you can visit the S. Verena chapel, which in prehistoric times used to be a Celtic cultus site. This little church has been mentioned for the first time in 1256. Those who love hiking and nature can enjoy fabulous views on the Dolomites from the meadows, pastures and fields in the surroundings of Longostagno, and these views range from Bolzano to Bressanone.
Also in winter you can do a series of leisure time activities: cross-country skiing, tobogganing or also snow-shoeing are popular activities for young and old. The nearby Corno del Renon skiing area makes you experience great days on the slopes.
