The Wilten district spreads out at the foot of the wooded heights of the Bergisel, where the Sill emerges from its final gorge, to flow down the Inn Valley. This site leads to the Brenner pass and is strategic, as the presence of motorways and railways suggest. Here, the Romans had founded the town of Veldidena, before an abbey was built over its remains in the Middle Ages. Later, the Battle of Bergisel and Winter Olympic Games made it one of the Tyrol's major historical locations.
