Foresta

The village of Foresta extends at the southern edge of Lagundo and is famous for its homonymous brewery.

Foresta represents the most southern locality of Lagundo and extends at 320 to 360 m asl. Not only its rural and original character make Foresta worth a visit, but also its brewery, which is also well-known beyond borders.

The Forst brewery, which is by gave the name to the locality, is one of the largest breweries of Italy. Founded in 1857 by the town clerk Franz Tappeiner, today the “Forst” produces seven different types of beer. A stop at the brewery to taste one of the beers produced right in this place is of course a must-do in your holidays, all the same you should pay a visit to the Castel Foresta, where the famous minne singer Oswald von Wolkenstein was kept imprisoned by his mistress Sabina Jäger. Another virtue of Foresta is of course its vicinity to Merano.
