Archeoparc Feldthurns

Almost everywhere where excavations are carried out in Feldthurns, the evidence of a high religious culture of our ancestors comes to light, reaching from the Königsanger to the bottom of the valley.
The central site is the Tanzgasse, where burial sites and remains of pottery production have been found, which indicate the first communities of farmers and cattle breeders dating back to the 5th millennium BC.

The discovery of the Copper Age cult site of Feldthurns Tanzgasse represents a rare stroke of luck for the study of the prehistory of South Tyrol: A megalithic site - a structure of large, often unhewn stones - and a figural stone stele, a menhir, were found lying in an undisturbed archaeological layer of earth. Other finds, such as bone remains, gold, pottery, demonstrate the burial forms and cult practices of this period.

It is noteworthy that the dance alley was repeatedly used by man over thousands of years - from the Neolithic period to the Middle Ages. Since the area has not yet been excavated in its entirety, further exciting findings can be expected in the future.
