The beauty of Mother Nature

Sights worth seeing in Kiens/Chienes?

Pretty much everything that meets the eye.  After all, it is located right in the middle of the “green valley”, as the Pustertal-Val Pusteria is known, embedded in scenery of hills thickly covered with conifers, dramatically high mountains, and villages that could each be right out of a postcard.

 

All of the beauty that Mother Nature has handed out here across the land with particular satisfaction is worthwhile to see.  Such as the nearby Issinger Weiher - Laghetto d’Issengo pond, sometimes known as the “sea of the Pustertal valley - Val Pusteria”, one of the last pond biotopes in Südtirol-South Tyrol which, with its shimmering green, tempts visitors to jump in.

Following the traces of the past

Anyone who prefers to be tracking down history through the Kronplatz Dolomites Region has a good starting point in Kiens-Chienes. They can head for Ehrenburg-Casteldarne Castle or the St. Sigmund-S. Sigismondo parish church and listen to ancient tales.  

 

And those who just can’t get enough of natural and cultural wonders here, in the immediate vicinity, will do best to seek the wisdom of the past: between Hofern-Corti and Issing-Issengo close to Mühlen-Molini rises up a Norway spruce. This tree that is around a hundred years old reaches a height of a good 25 m (82 ft.) and has a diameter of 34 cm (13 in).
