Neustiftblick nature site

Accessible from the Froneben middle station or directly from Neustift

Neustift was first mentioned in a document in 1312, when the prince of the time transferred an estate "in Nüwenstift" to Stams Monastery. However, place and field names already point to agricultural use by the Romans. Emperor Maximilian I gave the "Toler" (Neustifter) their first church, as he probably wanted to save himself the long journey to Telfes on his hunting trips. In the 18th century, Franz de Paula Penz then built a huge hall next to it, which has since become the second largest village church in Tyrol and still stands out in the townscape of Neustift. Today, Neustift is the third-largest municipality in Tyrol in terms of area and has around 5,000 inhabitants at an altitude of 970 to 3,507 m above sea level.
