Altfinstermünz is an old fortress that once guarded the Roman Emperor transfer route Via Claudia. Via Claudia stretched from the Po valley in Italy, crossing the Alps by the Reschen Pass and ended in Augsburg, Germany. The route was in use until the new Reschen Road was built (1850-1854). Characteristics of the border fortress are the machicolation defense tower, a passageway through the premises and the square tower Sigmundseck. A long cave leads up to the tower. The renovated chapel is located close to the old toll watchtower by the Inn canyon. The Altfinstermünz Association was founded in 2001, and the club has since actively worked to restore and revitalize the fortress, making it into one of the main attractions of the region.
