Strassen

Strassen is located in Hochpustertal. It is also the place where the road branches off into Tyrol’s Gailtal, which proceeds directly to Lesachtal. Yet it’s worth staying in Strassen. Strassen, which has 825 inhabitants, and lies at 1098 metres, also has a great deal to offer. It is a classic scattered settlement, i.e. the area of settlement is partly in the floor of the valley, and also partly in the south-facing slope area. Where exactly the name comes from is difficult to determine, in this instance it may be something very obvious. 

In this vein, Strassen simply relates to the location on the ‘Straße’, or on the ‘road’. The town itself is exceedingly notable; many of the farms are heritage farms which are worth seeing since they recount a rich history; one characterised by agriculture. The Holy Trinity Church is also notable. A chapel was built on this site in 1638. In spring 1763 the chapel was demolished to its foundation walls and re-built. For those who don’t want to “only” concern themselves with the beauty and the history of Strassen, and who fancy setting out on their trusty bicycle to enjoy the fantastic natural surroundings, the nearby Drau cycle trail is at hand.
