Valle dei Mòcheni - a fascinating island in the mountains
The traditionally connected, authentic and uninhabited Valle dei Mòcheni is one of the southernmost German language islands at all. It was settled in the 14th century by farmers and workers from Tyrol and South Tyrol. The ancient Bavarian dialect language, the Bersntolerisch, one of 52 minority languages in Europe, has been unchanged for over 700 years and is still spoken by about 800 inhabitants in the valley. Here the past is valued, the present and the future are never left out of sight - a successful interplay between historical consciousness and modernity arises.
Let yourself be enchanted by "La valle incantata - the enchanting valley", as Robert Musil, the Austrian writer in his novella "Grigia" called it . A trip to one of the most pristine valleys of Trentino is ready to start.
