Cultural highlight

Hunters & Herdsmen in Vent

"Hohler Stein" 2050m
About 20m below the ground many findings were excavated, among them the remnants of two fireplaces.

Vent Tirol
Ancient hunters´ camp
As archeological findings have shown this camp dates from 7600 BC.

The camp is located on a terrace an elevation of 1950m above sea level, where the valleys of Niedertal and Rofantal meet. These two valleys probably served as natural borders of extensive hunting grounds that reached up to the main Alpine chain.

Sheep Trailing

A century-old tradition

Vent Tirol
In mid June, 2,000 - 3,000 sheep are driven down from their summer pastures via the Hochjoch and Niederjoch saddles from the Schnalstal valley (Val Senales) to Vent.

In September, they return on the same route to their South-Tirolean farms.
