    Parish Church of Welschnofen

    by tini58de Written Aug 25, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first Christian church in Welschnofen is said to have been built in the 11th century, but it was only in 1298 that a church was first mentioned. In 1827/28 a new church was built in its place, but even this "new" church was totally torn down in 1965. Well, not totally: the church tower remained. It is now the oldest architecture in Welschnofen, with the old basis from the 13th century and the octagonal upper part and the onion dome from the year 1741.

    The church building itself was reopened in 1967 and is a totally modern building.

    Welschnofen

    Well, what can I say? I did not think the town of Welschnofen/Nova Levante was all that special: you basically have a main street and loads of houses, hotels and shops lined up along the valley. If you look closely, you surely will be able to find some nice spots and details, but I think, nobody will argue that it is mainly the breathtaking surrounding that is worthwhile visiting!

    Enjoy nature from above.

    I'd recommend a "by air" trip to the Latemar area. Latemar are a group of mountains located in Val di Fiemme (Fiemme Valley).

    We (me and my firends) took the cablecar from Predazzo (ask where do you have to take it) to Gardonè. This place is at 1.650 meters on the sea level. From here we took the chairlift to Passo Feudo. It is at 2.200 meters o. s. l.

    The Latemar area is a ski resort, but it is also a good place for walking or trekking.

    Being the first time I caught the chairlift I was quite worried.

    Not only wonderful but also wanderful

    by csordila Updated Apr 11, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In summertime, South Tyrol offers also several interesting trekking either in the history to the fan of history testimonies of the Great War or in the amazing nature to the tourists.

    One of them, the most beautiful trekking route in Europe is the Sentiero della Pace - Peace Path. More than 350 km long route connects paths, trenches and military roads, fortresses on the Trentino front line between Stelvio and Marmolada. Some of the bloodiest battles took place here during the Great War; almost half million soldiers lost their life, many from the cold in winter.
    The Campana dei Caduti - Bell of Peace, cast from the bronze cannons, tolls every evening in memory of the dead of both sides from the Colle di Miravalle - Miravalle Hill, just outside the nearby city of Rovereto.

    A yellow dove marks the route, anybody may wander in its full length under 28-30 days, but there are opportunity for one-day tours ( 6 - 8 hours ) by walking fom one mountain refuge to the next one too. You can discover many things you never knew about before!

    Another pleasant one-day tour can be a visit in Torbole at Lake Garda. Monte Baldo is one of the most popular places for a mountain walk and a great Lake Garda leisure activity.
    Taking the cable car up Monte Baldo you get an incredible views to the lake, the city and the surrounding mountains.

    The view from Glatschalm of the Geissler range

    by richiecdisc Written Jul 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Though the Geissler range's hightest peak is little more than 3000 meters, they as a group are imposing as they seem to jut straight up out of nowhere. The more popular views are from Val Gardena but the Villnoes valley has equally impressive vantage points. One of the closest is from Berggasthof Glatschalm. It is a bit touristy and there are busloads of elderly tourists there gawking at them, but you can do a short walk along the base to escape some of the crowds. The gasthof has a limited menu but the food was quite good and really not too expensive considering the view.

    Longer walks around the Geisser range

    by richiecdisc Written Jul 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The view from Glatschalm is fantastic but to truly escape the masses and gain a different perspective, it is best to do a a longer walk. We did one up to Refugio Genova and the views like the one pictured of the Geissler on our way up were exceptional and best of all, we had them to ourselves. It was very early in the season and mid-week so this surely contributed to our solitude. The uppper hut was closed so we had this picnic area sans crowds too. :)

    Bolzano

    by richiecdisc Written Jul 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bolzano is a charming place for either an extended stay or merely a stopover. The compact city center is easily explored on foot and has numerous place to eat and drink. The surrounding area is a fine mixture of nature with rugged peaks and deep gorges, and of a gently beautiful wine region. The Duomo is the city's prized cathedral with its original structure dating back to 1295 in the Romanesque style but later building from 1340 were continued in the Gothic style by Swabian workers. It is open Mon-Fri from 9:45-12:00, 14:00-17:00 and only Sat mornings.

    Piazza Walther

    by richiecdisc Updated Jul 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The city's main square shows many influences but as its known name of "gute Stube" infers, it was built initially by German forefathers. Originally built in 1809 by King Maxmillian of Bavaria, it was later renamed after Walther, one of Germany's greatest poets. His statue has been reinstated after the Fascist regime ordered it placed outside the city from 1935-1985. It is quite the peaceful square today and a place to that tourist as well as locals seem to congregate.

    Rosengarten Mountains - Kölner Hut

    by tini58de Written Sep 2, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Rosengarten Mountains are the predominant mountains in the Welschnofen/Nova Levante area. You can hike up to the Kölner Hut, but boy, that involves a lot of climbing, since that hut is at 2.337 m a.s.l.!

    We went up to the Kölner Hut by means of the two Laurin chair lifts - and this really is a looooong ride! When we arrived we enjoyed the scenery and later we enjoyed a lovely lunch up there!

    Our friends then hiked the "Hirtzlsteig" (path number 549) along the Rosengarten massif and Heinz and I took the lift back to the Frommeralm (middle station of the two lifts). From there we took the bus to Nova Levante and walked back to our appartment.

    Oetzi - the famous Tyrolean Iceman

    by csordila Written Apr 4, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want a "face-to-face" encounter with the 5300-year-old man, who came from the ice of Ötztal, then you should not miss a visit in the South Tyrolean Archaeological Museum in Bolzano.
    Oetzi, is a fully-clothed, fully-equipped mummy of a relatively old man of approx. 45 years of age. A man from the late Neolithic Age who was underway in the Upper Alps and died as a result of fatal wounds by an arrow during some kind of fight.
    He was found dressed in clothes made from sheep and cattle hair in alpine ice just a few meters inside Italian territory in 1991.
    To take photos inside the museum is not allowed.

    So, what about paying a visit to Bolzano’s most famous inhabitant?

    S. Romedio

    by Fabanna Written Mar 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This site is very special, it is positioned in a small canyon. The curch dates from 900 and has been enlarged through the centuries. Inside zou can see many beautiful frescos and most of all the reliquia of S.Romedio, a saint who according to the legend, travelled on the back of a bear.
    They opened now a new route where zou can walk around the canyon and enjoy the spectacular view.
    Under the church, a couple of bears are fed and cuddled by the monks. These bears were born in captivity and rescued from circuses, so they have a chance here to live in peace.

    Castelrotto

    by sierralyndon Written Aug 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Castelrotto is a nice little town, with some cute little buildings and surrounded by lovely hills. A great base esp. if you are spending some time up in the mountains.

    There are a couple of good, well-stocked supermarkets and fantastic bakeries - great if you are staying on a self-catering basis in this town.

    Marinzen - farm animals galore for kiddies

    by sierralyndon Written Aug 30, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Marinzen is connected to Castelrotto by skilift, and that by far is the easiest way to get there. You can also hike up but we didn't on that day.

    Marinzen is a base for some spectacular walks in various directions and we opted to go to Schafstall and then onward to Tschonadui.

    At Marinzen there is a bar/restaurant and in the surroundings, kids were going wild playing with some of the farm animals that were roaming around freely, esp. the little goats. There was also a family of what I imagined were mules (could've been donkeys for all I knew). There were free deck chairs for a bit of sun-bathing and some sporting equipment as well

    Day trip to Bolzano / Bozen

    by tini58de Written Sep 28, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Welschnofen is only some 30 km away from Bozen, so it is only about half an hour bus ride to get to there and enjoy a day in this wonderful little city. And if you are lucky, you might even meet VTers there who will show you around!

    For more information, please do have a look at my Bozen / Bolzano page! Thank you!

    Skiing at Plan de Corones

    by sierralyndon Written Sep 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Also known as Kronplatz this skifield is shaped like a giant "panettone" - a giant bun, so it's quite flat at the top. And on a good day you have a fantastic 360° view of the surroundings.

    I am a novice skiier, and found the blue runs all right.
