Musical spring – Siusi Alp
At Castelrotto spring starts with music. About middle / end of March there is the festival “Swing on Snow”. During this event Castelrotto and its surroundings turn into a single large concert hall. Along ski slopes, in mountain huts and hotels, squares and cable cars, everywhere bands of various styles play. Everything is represented: starting from brass bands in all variations, jazz and funk, to the Kletzmermusik. From Villa Tianes you can quickly reach all locations. You can then retire to the quiet and cosy S. Michele, completing the evening in the restaurant or with a good glass of red wine in the neighborhood.
Battle of modern knights
A fix appointment in every holiday calendar is the Oswald von Wolkenstein ride. The Equestrian Games are held every year in late May and give old knight values a new life. In this case, you cannot speak of a single ride actually, as the tournament takes place in four stages. One of them is the jump-ring on the Kofl, the Castelrotto mountain., then the maze in Seiser Matzlbödele in which each rider must ride through a narrow path marked out with rods. Afterwards along Fiè lake riders have to overcome an obstacle course at a gallop, completing the circuit with slalom posts at Prösel Castle. For horse lovers, these events are an absolute must.
From April, the golf season starts in the area around Castelrotto. Visit the golf course at S. Vigilio at the bottom of the Sciliar. The 18-hole course offers players some challenges and magnificent scenery. In hole number four, for example, you can hit the ball over a stream: in the hole or sunk in the stream. On the way to the hole number 15, playing you overcome probably the biggest difference in altitude of all golf courses in Europe.
