Castles

Some 800 castles and mansions are spread all over South Tyrol, most of them rise in the Appiano Castle Region on the Wine Road.

The area featuring the most castles in Europe is located around Appiano near the main town of South Tyrol: Venerable residences can be found in the village centres, and majestic castles rise on the hills in the surroundings. Between the Swan Castle in Nalles and the southernmost castle of the German speaking area - the one high above Salorno - there is much to discover.
