Insights into the Past, Views of Nature.

Combine your visit to the Mansio Sebatum Museum with a leisurely circular hike in charming scenery and discover living history along the archaeological panoramic trail.
The archaeological panoramic trail around the Sonnenburger Kopf takes visitors to historically important locations and excavation sites from the Bronze and Iron Ages, the Roman period and late antiquity.

16 presentation boards along the route provide information on the excavation sites and finds.

In this way, the – in places – well preserved, but only partially uncovered remains of the walls help bring alive the settlements and fortifications on the Sonnenburger Kopf and in the valley basin of St. Lorenzen in the mind’s eye of the observer. Illustrations help to bring the picture of these fortified settlements into clearer focus.

The bowl stones of Sonnenburg, believed to date from the late Bronze Age (11th-10th centuries BCE) are among the most mysterious monuments, whose meaning is still disputed today. In addition, visitors will gain an insight into the fauna on the Sonnenburger Kopf and, at selected points, views of the ancient remains of the walls of the Roman mansio (resting place, inn) and the rolling landscape around St. Lorenzen and Bruneck.
