Altitude: 765 metres
The lovely little curate church consecrated to Saint Martin lies in a green valley, surrounded by big chestnuts.
A common root of the German name 'Glaning' can still be found in the word 'Glan' that in the dialect of the Passeier valley means cranberries. Therefore Glaning, that derives from Glaniga, Glania means 'cranberry place'. In the 16th century Glaning became a pilgrims town.
Also in Glaning there are some restaurants, ideal for a rest during a long walk:
the Messner (764 metres), Noafer (760 metres), Plattner (1047 metres). Glaning
is an ideal destination for a family trip, especially in summertime and autumn
(Törggelen), thanks to its mild climate and closeness to Bozen.
