Holidays in Kastelruth
In the pretty mountain village and its districts, there live about 6,800 inhabitants. At the same time, Kastelruth is the home town of the world-famous band folk music group Kastelruther Spatzen.
Every year, the renowned musicians give two concerts in their hometown: the Spatzen Open Air in June and the Kastelruther Spatzenfest in October. The Spatzenfest is the biggest tent festival in the Alps and a must for all who like South Tyrolean folk music.
Kastelruth is popular not only among music lovers, but it offers leisure activities, culture and scenic highlights for everyone – because the village is located directly below the mighty mountain Schlern, where you can find numberless hiking routes and ski slopes.
