Trentino-Alto Adige Things to Do

  • Castel Coira.

    Castel Coira (Churburg in German) is a castle overlooking the village of Sluderno; in the Venosta Valley.It was built between 1253 and 1258 by the bishop of Chur. Fifty years later it passed to the counts of Matsch. It has been owned by the Trapp family since 1504.Several rooms of the castle are opened to visitors. Visits are only on guided tours...

  • Visit cemeteries

    I do like cemeteries in Sudtirol very much. They are so different from ours, always in open spaces, always with stunning flowers and plant. They look even like a place full of joy.

  • Visit Abbazia di Novacella (Neustift)

    This huge abbey dates back to 1142 thanks to Agostinians. You can access inside just with a guided tour (either in German or Italian, every hours). Actually the visit inside was a bit disappointing for me becuase it was mainly focused on religious art, which is actually a bit boring from me. But it is the only opportunity you have to visit the...

  • Vipiteno.

    Vipiteno is a beautiful small town and a ski resort located some 30 km north of Bressanone, 70 km from Bolzano and 50 km from Innsbruck. It is 950 meters on the sea level.The main street in the old town centre; Neustadt (new town) is lined with buildings erected after the 1417 fire; between XIV and XV centuries when the town was prosperous with the...

  • Not only wonderful but also wanderful

    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...

  • Oetzi - the famous Tyrolean Iceman

    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...

    Moena is a beautiful small town located in Val di Fassa (Fassa Valley). Here you can stroll along the river and see many beautiful houses.

  • Day trip to Bolzano / Bozen

    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!

  • Karersee / Lago di Carezza

    The Carezza Lake lies in the middle of the Carezza Forrest, just below the Latemar mountains at an altitude of 1534 m. Because of its breathtaking colors it is also called "Lec de Ergobando" (Rainbow Lake).Lake Carezza has no obvious tributary, but is fed by underground springs. Depending on the water level (which changes from month to month) the...

  • The Labyrinth

    The Labyrinth is an area of the Latemar massif with very picturesque huge rocks all around due to a rockfall. This area has also inspired Agatha Christie so much that she included it in one of her books ("The Big Four"). For this reason you have the "Agatha Christie Path" passing by the labyrinth, but also a hiking path crossing the labyrith.The...

  • Rosengarten Mountains - Kölner Hut

    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...

    more
  • 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...

    more
  • Parish Church of Welschnofen

    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,...

  • 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....

  • S. Romedio

    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...

  • Skiing at Plan de Corones

    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.

  • Marinzen - farm animals galore for...

    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...

  • Ortisei

    Ortisei is another pleasant Alpine village with quite a bit going on. Lots of opportunities for shopping for local delights.

    more
  • Castelrotto

    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.

  • Piazza Walther

    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...

  • Bolzano

    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...

  • Longer walks around the Geisser range

    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...

  • The view from Glatschalm of the Geissler...

    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...

  • Passo Stelvio (Stelvio Pass)

    The Passo Stelvio is supposed to the second highest pass in the Alps. The actual point of the pass itself is scenic enough with some shops, restaurants and hotels. However, the best part of the trip is the getting there. We quite stupidly decided that it was a “short cut” to get back from San Cassiano to Milan. It was the longest short cut of our...

    more
  • Cortina d'Ampezzo

    Cortina is supposedly Italy’s winter playground for the rich and famous. In the summer time, it’s a pleasant town to visit with lots of shops, cafes and with good facilities. There is an Olympic ice-skating rink here (open-air). When I was there in winter, the crowd there was very much made up of well-heeled ladies in their fur coats, rather than...

    more
  • San Cassiano

    This is a great base from which to explore the Dolomites. It is a small village with many good quality hotels and holiday apartments. There is one main road, and people are very friendly.From San Cassiano itself there is a cable car straight to the Piz Sorega skifield (2003m).
