Trains and history
This summer, Val Gardena puts at its visitors’ disposal a means that is perfect to make a journey through its history…
This is not a metaphor: we are talking about what the locals call “Trenino della Val Gardena” (“the small train of Val Gardena”).
It was a means of transport created in 1916 to carry war materials from Chiusa to Plan.
It took about 6 months and 6000 Russian soldiers (war prisoners) to build the whole railroad.
Throughout August, the municipal library “Tresl Gruber” in S. Cristina will host a photo exhibition to celebrate the 100 years of the railway line.
Don’t miss the chance of discovering the history of Val Gardena!
