Spinges is a quaint mountain village, a place marked by quietness and where life’s pulse is somewhat less vibrant. On the other hand, Spinges can look back on an interesting past. Due to a heroine from the Tyrolean freedom fighting campaign called Katharina Lenz, a very brave ‘girl from Spinges’, the village found its way into the historic descriptions of the Napoleonic Wars. Today, the village enjoys a somewhat quieter life, with lots of sun and less touristic hustle and bustle, even though it is only 10 km from Brixen. Enjoy the treasures that nature offers you in a very genuine landscape, as well as the breath-taking views of the Brixen Valley basin and its surrounding villages, the Puster Valley and the South Tyrolean mountain world.
