The picturesque village of Caldaro is located southwest of Bolzano, situated between the villages of Appiano (Eppan) and Termeno (Termin) and at the foot of the mountain Mendola (Mendel).
Caldaro lies upon a hilly terrain and together or because of Lake Caldaro you can enjoy a Mediterranean flair in the midst of the Alps. Our culture is a combination of the typical Tyrolean tradition and the Italian lifestyle. This is especially evident in the different kinds of food and dishes: many restaurants in Caldaro offer the hearty Tyrolean food and the delightful Italian cuisine. Do not miss out on the feeling of the dolce vita with an aperitif on our lake!
Our village offers a wine museum, which will show you our culture of the grape. Our wineries do also offer tours and tastings of the Tyrolean wine.
Southern South Tyrol
In South Tyrol there are more than 400 castles and historical palaces, some of which are located in the surrounding area: for example the St. Peter’s Basilica ruins from the 4th century in Castelvecchio. Especially interesting is the point of view which you can enjoy from behind our local village church. Here begins the path of the Rastenbachklamm which is entertaining with its stairs and bridges, especially for children. Among the nearby attractions are the three castles in Missiano at Appiano (Castel Korb – Castle Boymont – Castel Hocheppan).
An absolutely must-see are the ice holes in Appiano, a natural phenomenon which can only be found a second time in the US. It is a high alpine flora where a temperature crash of uo to 20° is achieved even in the midsummer 35° heat.
The Mendel-cable- railway, the Botanic Gardens Trauttmansdorff, the both lakes of Monticolo, the Canyon Bletterbachschlucht in Aldino, the Monte Corno Nature Park, the Dolomites, the earth pyramids at Renon and the Iceman in the archaeology museum in Bolzano are just a couple attractions also worth to see.
