Located between Merano and Bolzano, holidays in the castle villages of Tesimo and Prissiano offer time for recovery, hiking and enjoyment. Surrounded by apple trees and vineyards, Tesimo and Prissiano were once beloved by nobles. The six forts and castles bear witness to this glorious past. Idyllic, located on a sunny high plateau, and far from busy streets, Tesimo and Prissiano provide a peaceful atmosphere on holiday as well as enjoyment and activity on the many cycling and hiking trails. The Tesimo chestnuts(Keschtn) are renowned for their flavour and may be sampled during special seasonal chestnut days or Törggelen.
