Castelrotto/Kastelruth is the biggest village in the Seiser Alm holiday area, and the beauty of its picturesque village centre never fails to amaze visitors:
- Historic town centre
- The Colle/Kofel hill
- Living traditions, passed down over the generations
The historic village centre of Castelrotto
is part of the "Borghi più belli d'Italia" and is a wonderful place to stroll around and enjoy the shops. The picturesque village is dominated by the Classical parish church, the whitewashed houses and the Baroque church tower, which is well worth a visit in its own right: from the top of the tower, your view sweeps over the attractive village centre and the “Colle/Kofel”, the porphyry hilltop in the town centre which is a recreation area, an adventure park for children, and a pilgrimage site.
If you’re planning to spend your holidays in Castelrotto, you will find so many traditions which have been passed down and kept alive over the generations
: one particular highlight on the events’ calendar is the farmer’s wedding every winter, a faithful reenactment of a farmer’s wedding as it would have been celebrated here in times gone by, right down to the traditional wedding costumes and wedding meal.
