Stegona owes its popularity to the largest market of Tyrol, the Stegona Market, taking place in October.
As a “suburb“ of Brunico, Stegona normally does not draw too much attention, But in the month of October, as this is when Stegona comes to play a much more important role to play, for three days. The Stegona Market is the largest market of Tyrol and does not only attract inhabitants of the municipality, but also people from East and North Tyrol.
Stegona is also ideal to start your cycling tour, as the village is connected to the PusterBike cycle track. From here you can also cycle to Valle Aurina. On foot or by bicycle you also reach the city of Brunico, within a few minutes only. If you are interested in sacred buildings, visit the S. Nicolò church, constructed in Gothic style.
By the way: a local proverb says that if you live in Val Pusteria and you would like to get over the winter season very well, you need to visit the Stegona market.
