The village of Terlano, the main village of the municipality, has got some 2,500 inhabitants and is located at 248 m asl. One of the main sights is the Gothic Assunta parish church dating back to the 14th century. Particularly striking is the colourful glazed tiled roof of the late Gothic steeple of the 16th century. With a hight of 75 metres it is by the way the second highest steeple of South Tyrol. The interior, however, boasts some Gothic frescos of the so-called “Bozner Schule”.
Worth seeing and reachable in a short walk is the Neuhaus ruin. The castle was established at the beginning of the 13th century and was considered to be the favourite place to stay for the territorial princess Margarethe Maultasch, who conferred the byname “Maultasch Castle” to this mansion.
Those who love to spend active holidays and experience an afternoon in the high-rope course “Hetz”, an adventure park for adults and children. A swimming pool, tennis courts and a keep-fit-trail make your stay even more varied. Also cyclists can look forward to a stay in the village, as the Bolzano-Merano cycling trail passes by.
Our tip: as Terlano is well-connected to the cities of Bolzano and Merano via train or the highway MeBo, which is convenient for your city trips.
