Sights and attractions in Scharnitz

In 1632, during the time of the Thirty Years’ War (1618 – 1648), the government in Innsbruck obtained permission to erect a fortress on a piece of land located in the narrow Scharnitz valley that belonged to the Bishopric of Freising. The impressive fortification was named after the reigning Regent of Tyrol, Claudia de Medici, who was present at the ceremony.
