Six component localities form the municipality of Tarrenz at the entrance of the Gurgltal valley. The focus here is set on sheep breeding, but the little village with a heart that is characterised by the Rhaeto-Romanic construction style attaches also great importance to customs and traditions.
For those who love active holidays there is much to do and see in Tarrenz and its surroundings. The offer includes the Seehof riding stable, the Starkenbach climbing garden, the Tarrenz boulder hall with a climbing surface of 100 sqm, and the Gurgltal Cycle Route. This section of the Via Claudia Augusta shows you the beauty of the Gurgltal valley to the end point in Nassereith. If you prefer hikes, than the Witched Educational Trail and the Salvesen Gorge are well worth a visit.
For Tarrenz, the former knights' family Starkenberger was particularly important: Their emblem can still be seen on the coat of arms of the municipality. They had Altstarkenberg Castle erected in the 12th century, while in the 14th century they let Neustarkenberg Castle built in order to guard the important transit route Via Claudia Augusta. In 1810, the facility, located close to Lake Starkenberg and under French occupation back then, got the permission to brew beer. Still today, the brewery exists - it invites you to a stunning journey in its Starkenberg Beer Adventure World.
