Things to do: historic sites
Franzensfeste is a village in South Tyrol in northern Italy. The village is famous for its large fort and the historic railway-station.GeographyFranzensfeste is 19km south of Sterzing and 11km north of Brixen in the Eisacktal where the valley is only a few hundred meters wide. The village is situated on the western side along with the Brenner Railway and the state road SS12 while the Brenner Highway A22, running elevated on the same side, pass through the lake in its northern part entering a tunnel on the opposite side; the state road cross than the Eisack river nearby the railway station due north.HistoryOriginFranzensfeste was founded recently, the village dates from the 19th century when the construction of the fortifications was begun, to which the site is also closely linked in name, and the railway. The municipality was originally Mittewald, still the common land, with the two villages of Oberau and Unterau. Franzensfeste forms part of the Sachsenklemme; itself an area of the Eisacktal valley. Archeological findings have shown the area to be settled by 2500 B.C. as indicated by the finding of home pottery. The site has always played an important role in the transit of goods on the north-south bound, first as the Amber Road between Greece, Sicily and Northern Europe later in the Roman period, between Aquileia and the regions beyond the Alps; also a 140m long stretch of the Roman Via Claudia Augusta has been unearthed.
