Holidays in Tramin
Tramin – for wine connoisseurs this is a familiar name. The small village, which is well-known beyond the borders of South Tyrol for its first-class wines, is located at 276m above sea level on a sunny hillside in the southern part of South Tyrol, surrounded by old wineries.
Tramin has its good reputation primarily as home of the Gewürztraminer – a white wine, which is low in acid but has a very intensive aroma. In Tramin and environs, the whole year round wine plays an important role, but especially in autumn: During the traditional time of “Törggelen” you can taste the new wines of the season and relish roasted chestnuts, as well as other specialties of the region.
If you decide to pass your holiday in Tramin in spring or summer, you should as well visit one of the many wine cellars. But Tramin has not just offers for wine lovers. The nice vacation spot has as well a vast range of sports facilities and hiking trails. The new adventure pool, the waterfall and the climbing parks ensure fun and diversion for the whole family.
During a stroll through Tramin and the surrounding vineyards you can visit the romantic church St. Jakob in Kastelaz. Inside, you will see some Romanesque frescos, which are ranking among the oldest ones in the German-speaking area. For those who are interested in the rural way of life in southern South Tyrol, there is the village museum in Tramin.
