Within sight of the Spanglwirt and within easy walking distance is the imposing Taufers Castle, one of the best preserved castles in South Tyrol.

Reinbach waterfalls and Franziskusweg
If you spend your holiday in Sand in Taufers, you must not miss the impressive natural spectacle of the Reinbach waterfalls! Directly from the Spanglwirt on foot or easily accessible by car, the Franziskusweg (contemplation path to the Song of the Sun) leads through a mystical natural landscape, past three thunderous waterfalls to the lovingly restored Toblkapelle (St. Ravens' Chapel), which dates back to the 12th century.
A visit to the Prettau exhibition mine is particularly instructive and exciting. Equipped with a safety helmet and headlamp, visitors can take a small train deep into the exhibition gallery and experience the former life and hard work of the miners at first hand.
Maranatha Crib Museum
"Maranatha" is the name of the crib museum in Luttach in the Ahrn valley, which has existed since 2000 and has been expanded and made even more attractive since then. This name goes back to an Aramaic exclamation which was used by the former Christians and which means something like "Our Lord has come" - appropriate for a crib museum. An imaginative crib world inside as well as an outdoor area with a sculptor's garden awaits you in the museum.
Messner Mountain Museum
Corones - Firmian - Ripa - Juval - Ortles - Dolomites
Reinhold Messner has dedicated a museum project with six locations in the breathtaking landscape of South Tyrol and Belluno to the mountain and its culture. The Messner Mountain Museum is a meeting place with the mountain. Every visit is like a mountain tour, a unique experience!
Tauferer Street Kitchen
The "Stroßnkuchl" in Sand in Taufers is the mother of all street and outdoor kitchens in South Tyrol. This summer, gourmets can look forward to two months full of moments of pleasure when the chefs of the local restaurants and taverns take out their kitchen utensils and prepare South Tyrolean specialities and Mediterranean delicacies under the open sky. Every Tuesday evening in July and August.
