The municipal town of Vipiteno combines Medieval atmosphere with modern charm.

The municipal city of Vipiteno includes the town of Vipiteno as well as Ceves, Tunes and Novale. Always has Vipiteno been commercial centre, above all due to its location between the Alpine passes of Passo Giovo, Passo del Brennero and Passo di Pénnes.

The municipality is located in the west of the Stubai Alps, in the east there are the Zillertal Alps and in the south and south-west it is delimited by the Sarentino Alps. Between the Isarco and the Ridanna rivers, Vipiteno extends on the north-western border of a plain valley basin in the southern Wipptal valley.

In fact, this area has already been settled in prehistoric times, as 14 BC the Roman settlement "Vipitenum" developed in this place. Still today the Medieval town of Vipiteno combines ancient atmosphere with the modern aspects of a small city that is characterised by a climate that is typical for Central Europe. Shopping in the former Fugger city, mountain tours in the summer months and skiing in the Monte Cavallo and Ladurno skiing area, Vipiteno offers a wide range of activities for those who love active holidays as well as sight for those who are interested in culture. Together with four other charming and historically interesting South Tyrolean places - Castelrotto, Glorenza, Egna and Chiusa - Vipiteno is part of "I borghi più belli d'Italia" (The most beautiful places in Italy) with the note "The captured hours on the Tower of the Twelve".
