Magrè on Fenneberg
The wine village of Magrè was constructed on the rock faces of Fennberg and was mentioned in documents for the first time in 1181. It is said that its village image is one of the most distinctive in South Tyrol, because of its striking architecture. This is a mixture of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. The many arched entrances and double bow windows are typical of Magrè.
The parish church defies the normal style in that the church tower is divided from the nave by a street. Another curiosity is the Margreider Urrebe. It is more than 400 years old and is therefore the oldest vine in Europe.
The area around Magrè, like the rest of South Tyrol's South is dominated by vineyards and apple plantations. The slightly mountainous landscape is perfect for walks, gentle hikes and cycle tours. If you want something more challenging, the fixed-aid climbing route on Fennberg offers the opportunity to put your skill to the test.
Popular excursion destinations near Magrè are the biotope all around the Fenner Lake with its 35 different species of orchid and the "Old Adiga", a pond, which was created from a former branch stream of Adige River. Another distinctive feature of the area is the Regenstein, a striking seeping rock formation, on which the particles of limestone from the water are deposited.
