Foresta

The village of Foresta is famous for its brewery, known beyond borders.

The locality of Foresta is located at the right riverbank of the Adige and at the southern edge of the municipality of Lagundo, stretching from 320 to 360 m asl.

The latest since the foundation of the brewery Forst, name-giving for the (German name of the) locality, this place is known beyond borders and, literally, on everyone’s lips. It is one of the largest breweries of Italy, founded in 1857 by the town clerk Franz Tappeiner. Today it is a popular meeting point where traditional dishes and home-made beers are served.

However, also from a cultural viewpoint, Foresta has got some offers. Castel Vorst, part of the brewery, was constructed around 1300. A curiosity on the castle: in these ancient walls, Oswald von Wolkenstein was kept prisoner by his mistress Sabina Jäger.
