The Ridnauntal / Val Ridanna branches off westwards from Sterzing / Vipiteno and historically is closely linked to the Fugger town. Until a few decades ago, the highest mining area in Europe was located at the foot of the Monteneve Mountain. Today it has been converted into a tourist attraction that draws many interested visitors every year. Historical buildings, pleasant hikes, and inviting Alpine pastures can be discovered in the Ridnauntal / Val Ridanna area.
