About the Village of Feldthurns / Velturno near Bressanone

Feldthurns/Velturno is a small village situated at an altitude of 850 meters above sea-level in the low mountain range around the Eisack/Isarco Valley. It boasts a quaint old village square with picturesque inns and pubs, handsome farmhouses, proud manorial estates, as well as a Gothic church and a Renaissance castle with turrets dating back to 1577. Here in the former summer residence of the Prince-Bishop of Brixen/Bressanone, you can experience both interesting peasant traditions and modern village culture, including concerts and outdoor theatre. Every visit is unique. It is a meeting place for ancient traditions and world-class culture. Just above the Unterwirt wellness hotel looms the old Velturns Renaissance castle. The Alpine meadows in the surrounding mountains are excellent destinations for hiking enthusiasts.

What if Ötzi had come from Velturno?

He would certainly have been a gourmet...
According to recent scientific discoveries, Ötzi the iceman was originally from the Isarco Valley, and perhaps even from Velturno. Around 5,000 years ago, copper was a still a rarity and an object of worship. At the time of his sudden death on the Hauslabjoch, Ötzi was probably in search of that scarce, precious metal. An analysis of his stomach contents revealed that he had eaten chestnuts shortly before his death; there are also totally unofficial reports of traces of tagliatelle with chestnuts and buckwheat cake, as well as chestnut liqueur. Such an obvious gourmet could only have come from Velturno!
Or could this be related to the fact that archaeologists have found pottery vessels in the necropoli which belong to the so-called Beaker culture? Up till now, excavations have only brought to light three such cult sites in the entire arc of the Alps: at Aosta, in the Pennine Alps, and in... Velturno.
