The most beautiful sights in Castelrotto/Kastelruth and its environs

Impressive castles, sophisticated cities, and interesting museums

Do you love the pleasant silence, the untouched nature, and the spectacular mountains, but you also want to experience some culture and the pulsating city life in between? No problem, because there are numerous sights in Castelrotto/Kastelruth and its environs. The pretty village of Castelrotto/Kastelruth is officially one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, the “Borghi più belli d'Italia”. With its picturesque alleys, artfully painted houses, and lovingly maintained farms, Castelrotto/Kastelruth exudes a very special charm. The inhabitants are particularly proud of their church tower, which at 82 metres is not only one of the most beautiful sights in Castelrotto/Kastelruth, but also the third highest in the country.


Even back in the day, the holiday region of Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm attracted people. The Prösels Castle near Fiè allo Sciliar/Völs am Schlern, the Rovereto/Aichach ruins in Sant’Osvaldo/St. Oswald, the ruins of Castelvecchio/Hauenstein above Siusi allo Sciliar/Seis am Schlern, and the Salego/Salegg ruins to the west still bear witness to this today. Wonderful hikes lead to these impressive sights in Castelrotto/Kastelruth and its environs, such as the Monte Calvario/Kalvarienberg complex. A real jewel from the past is the Trostburg Castle at the entrance to the Val Gardena/Gröden with its magnificent halls, the Gothic room, and the beautiful chapel.
