Völs and culture

From yesterday to today

A holiday destination with a long history: the first written records of this sunny spot located not far from the Capital of the Alps date from the year 1188. Völs finally became an official cadastral community in 1312 and a market municipality in 2001. But its history goes much further back than that: the oldest findings indicating a settlement are stone axes from the 3rd century BC. An urnfield that dates back to the Bronze Age also suggests that Völs was a coveted place with beautiful panoramic views during this period.

Coins, Romans and a unique bronze bust

Coins found in the area and the famous “Völser Bacchus” bronze bust point to there having been a settlement in this area in Roman times. The “Völser Bacchus” is a representation of Bacchus, who is the God of Wine and also represents festivity. The bronze bust is only 10 cm tall and weighs 1.38 kg. It is of outstanding artistic quality and was originally used as a weight for a set of scales. The bust was found in 1999 during the restoration of the old parish church in Völs and can be admired today in the Thurnfels museum in Völs, alongside numerous other remarkable exhibits. The “Völser Bacchus” dates back to the first century AD and is one of the most important findings of its kind in all of Tyrol.
