Salorno in South Tyrol
Language border, vineyards and Albrecht Dürer
Salorno, the southernmost village in South Tyrol, is situated at the Chiusa di Salorno, the language border between German and Italian, and constitutes the end of the South Tyrolean wine route. It is the largest white wine growing region in South Tyrol. Castello di Salorno, Haderburg in German, arising majestically on a rock above the village, is the landmark of Salorno. The old village centre with its noble country houses and its Renaissance and Baroque buildings, its romantic alleys and archways, radiates a very special flair. Belonging to Salorno (224 m) are the idyllic hamlets of Pochi (556 m) and Cauria (1.326 m), which are part of Monte Corno nature park. Salorno is not only a hiker’s paradise but offers much more: many festivals, concerts and cultural events ensure entertainment and are an expression of the joy of life in this region. Here, an Italian lifestyle meets South Tyrolean tradition, and it is precisely this mix that makes the village so attractive.
