Holidays in Castelrotto – The picturesque village at the foot of the Alpe di Siusi
During your holiday in Castelrotto you will live just above one of the most beautiful villages in South Tyrol. The picturesque mountain hamlet is located just 800 meters away from the farm Niglalerhof and features a unique charm. The people of Castelrotto celebrate the South Tyrolean hospitality every day, and you’ll soon discover that everyone is truly welcome here. The capital of the parish was first mentioned in 928 and is an important place in the history of the country. Although a devastating fire in 1750 destroyed many buildings, the houses, the Church of Saint Peter and Paul and the narrow streets still maintain an inviting aura. The tower of the beautiful church in the village centre is one of the highest church towers in South Tyrol!
