Scenic sights along the South Tyrolean wine route

Vineyards on soft hillsides and orchards as far as you can see; elegant domiciles and castles, bathing lakes that invite you to go for a dip, colourful mixed forests, crooked wine villages and sunny mountain hamlets - the scenic sights alone make the most southern region of South Tyrol along the River Adige a popular and interesting place for your family holiday in South Tyrol. All year round you can explore the most beautiful places afoot or by bicycle. In the spring, when the apple trees are in full bloom, we recommend a walk through the colourful orchards along the South Tyrolean wine route, in the summer you should go for a dip in Lake Carezza or the two Lakes of Monticolo near Appiano, while in the autumn you should visit the prehistoric and Roman settlements of Castelvetere near Ora from where you will enjoy the breathtaking view of the colourful leaves of the vineyards that have changed their colour.

Cultural gems during your family holiday in South Tyrol

The region offers numerous sights that are definitely worth a visit during your family holiday in South Tyrol - from Terlano to Firmiano Castle and to Salorno, next to the province border of Trentino. The Messner Mountain Museum di Firmiano in the historical Firmiano Castle is situated near Bolzano and invites you to gain insights into ancient times, when the Alps were born. Up north, near Terlano, Casanova Castle (called Maultasch by the local people) and Montegrifo Castle (the so-called Sauschloss), a 12th century fortress, as well as the Gothic parochial church are well worth a visit to the wine area of Media Val d'Adige. The picturesque villages of Appiano and Caldaro with their nice city centres and numerous elegant domiciles and manor houses pay tribute to Tyrol's eventful history and are located in the south, along the South Tyrolean wine route. The community of Appiano alone counts about a dozen of castles and noble residences, just waiting to be explored by you during your family holiday in South Tyrol. Why not head south, to Cortaccia along the wine route, or to Montagna and Salorno, where you will come across idyllic manor-houses and picturesque castles. When you are interested in sacral buildings, you mustn't not miss out on visiting the parochial church of Termeno with the tallest brick steeple around and should pay a visit to the church of San Giacomo in Kastelaz, famous for its colourful frescoes. In thoroughly decorated city museums along the South Tyrolean wine route you will gain interesting insights into the every day life of the local people as well as into the wine growing and agricultural tradition.
