We are within sight of the border with Italy, an internal EU border, but no language or cultural border. The connection between the Austrian Tyrol and the Italian South Tyrol is very close for historical reasons - Tyroleans live on both sides.

The church of the Benedictine monastery of Innichen is worth seeing at the stage: an important Romanesque sacral building from the 12th century; Dome frescoes represent the story of creation; Gothic fresco by the famous painter Michael Pacher.
