The history of the village

Rein in Taufers was first mentioned in records in 1225. Its name comes from the Latin rius, rivus and means ‘little stream’. Legend has it that St. Wolfgang arrived in Rein on a mission and chased the devil out of the village. This is why the parish church of Rein was dedicated to him in the Middle Ages. At the start of the 20th century, it was newly built, and it has the unusual feature of being one of the few churches in South Tyrol that was built in neo-gothic style.

The Große Malersee lake, which is the most eastern and largest mountain lake in this group, is 170 metres long and 80 metres wide. Unencumbered views may be had from its banks of the Durreck and Rieserfernergruppe mountains. The striking peak of Tristennöckl mountain is 2,465 metres high. A special feature of this rocky mountain ridge is that the highest-lying cluster of Swiss pine trees in the eastern Alps may be found here.

Rein in Taufers is well known for ist festive transhumance. During the so-called ‘Kiekemma’ in autumn, the farmers bring their colourfully adorned cows and calves back down to the valley from mountain pastures.

The traditional Rein cattle drive, or transhumance, has made a name for itself far beyond the borders of Reintal valley. In mid-September, the animals that spent the summer on the mountain pasture are brought back down to their stalls. Cattle are adorned with magnificent decorations for the occasion and driven down to the valley. Locals and guests watch the spectacle from the sides of the road. The cows’ arrival is announced to those for miles around with the multi-pitched sounds of bells in all shapes and sizes, while more observers and the local ‘Musikkapelle’ wind and brass band awaits in the village to begin festivities. ‘Kiekemma’, as the event is known locally, is a special occasion in many parts of Pustertal valley, and farm kitchens get busy preparing all sorts of traditional culinary treats for the occasion.
