Southern South Tyrol keeps, what is promised by its name – regardless of which destination do you choose: from well-known towns along the famous South Tyrolean wine route such as EppanKaltern or Tramin to the quieter, but no less attractive villages. 

By the South Tyrolean wine route

Springtime in the southernmost part of South Tyrol is certainly going to enchant you. The apple trees flower abundantly and the sunny days and Mediterranean temperatures invite to magnificent hikes and excursions by bike. Visit the numerous castles and ruins of the region or discover the picturesque vineyards.

Countless culinary and sports events transform the localities by the South Tyrolean wine route into vital centres in spring. Connoisseurs should absolutely taste the delicious asparagus from Terlan.

Then, summer proceeds with a variety of events. Most of them take place in the open air, as the south of South Tyrol now benefits from splendid bathing weather. Who is looking for a little refreshment, should visit the lakes of Montiggl or Lake Kaltern – the warmest bathing lake in the Alps. Here, not only those who seek peace and quiet, but also families and water sports enthusiasts feel like in paradise.
