Short history of Vipiteno/Sterzing
Vipiteno/Sterzing existed already in the roman age as road fortress of the Roman Empire under the name Vipitenum. The town was officially mentioned in 1180 the first time. The earl of Tirol Meinhard II assigned to Vipiteno/Sterzing the right to be called "city", including all the privileges, in 1280. In 1443 a big fire destroyed several houses of one part of the city. The district of the town newly constructed after the fire was called "New Town" since then. This part is spread out from the 46m high main tower to the sub gate. The pedestrian zone of the New Town is known to be one of the most beautiful of Tyrol. It is flanked by big and small arcades and glamorous houses of the burgeois. The New Town with its majestic houses of the 15th and 16th century, which represent the flowering time of the mining, offers a magical townscape and was compared with the most beautiful town centres of Italy.
