Lana di Sopra

The lively pedestrian zone of Lana as well as the wild and romantic Gaul Canyon are situated in this locality

Lana di Sopra is located at 313 m a.s.l. and boasts a lively pedestrian zone called Am Gries, which is the shopping street of Lana, ideal for strolling around. Wine cellars and bars, fine food, restaurants as well as Mediterranean haute cuisine, the offer is manifold. Worth a visit is also the Capuchin’s monastery with attached church on the way to Lana di Mezzo. What we also recommend is a little excursion to Braunsberg Castle above the entrance to the Val d’Ultimo valley. Surrounded by cypresses, this castle is still today in the hands of the Trapp family.

The castle looks down upon the shady and romantic Gaul Canyon that provides refreshment on hot summer days. An impressive waterfall and a pending bridge make the lovely ravine even more spectacular. By the way, also sculptures of the South Tyrolean Sculpture Path can be admired in the gorge. Other recommendable walks are the Marlengo Waalweg path leading to Lana di Sopra, as well as the Brandis Waalweg path, connecting Lana di Sotto and Lana di Sopra. If you aim higher, we suggest a ride with the Monte San Vigilio Cable Car, which starts a little north of the Valsura dam.

The most famous citizen of Lana di Sopra is Johann Kravogl, which is considered to be the founder of the electric motor.
