Holidays in Jenesien
Warm hospitality, pleasant calmness on dreamlike places in untouched nature, fantastic views to the city Bozen and to the mighty peaks of the Dolomites, countless sports activities, culture and relaxation… All this is waiting for you in Jenesien!
The village is situated on the sunny high plateau Salten, at circa 1,000 m above sea level on the mountain between Bozen and Meran, called “Tschögglberg”. A settlement has existed already at the end of the 12th century and it was named after Saint Genesius of Rome, who is as well the patron saint of the local parish church. Today, the rural municipality has about 2,800 inhabitants and includes not only the principal town Jenesien, but also Afing, Flaas, Glaning and Nobils.
Above all, Jenesien is known as an ideal place for relaxing holidays, but also as hometown of the nice, blond Haflinger horses. In addition, it is also a little paradise for hikers. On the high plateau of Salten, there are many pleasant footpaths and hiking trails.
