Egna is actually a special place. Nestling at 217 m asl and counting some 5,000 inhabitants, it boasts beautiful historical buildings and not to forget the medieval arcades, a beloved venue of open air games or such amazing festivals as the so-called “Laubenfest”. And after enjoying culture you can look forward to numerous further highlights.
Ranging from adventurous horse rides to stunning hikes across the Monte Corno Nature Park, tennis courts and swimming pools, Egna provides a rich number of freetime activities. Of special importance is obviously the local wine, above all a pinot noir called “Blauburgunder”. On warm summer nights, exquisite wine tastings delight locals and visitors alike.
Another advantage is its vicinity to the Val di Fiemme, which in summer is ideal for walking and in winter for skiing on the slopes of the Cermis skiing area. In the north of Egna, there is the Castelfeder biotope, a place for walks and those who love nature, that is characterised by the ruins of a Roman fortress. For cycling, there is the cycle track along the Adige river, a great experience no matter if you decide to cycle towards north or south.
