The municipality of Villandro has got some 1,800 inhabitants and is undoubtedly one of the most charming holiday destinations in South Tyrol. It stretches from the vineyards at 480 m to the panoramic Monte di Villandro at 2,509 m. Also one of the most impressive high alpine pastures of the Alps, that is to say the Alpe di Villandro, belongs to the municipal territory and provides a breathtaking view on the bizarre Dolomite peaks as well as a series of trails for families. In winter, when the second largest high alpine pasture of Europe is covered by a soft white mantle, is ideal terrain for snow-shoe tours and winter walks.
Already in late winter, the first heralds of spring attract the attention, later the blossom of plum trees covers the landscape with a white sea of flowers, before the blossom of the alpine rose blossom starts in higher realms, making hiking and mountain bike tours an impressive experience. In autumn, however, we recommend you to make a walk along the chestnut trail, combined with a traditional Toerggele evening in one of the local Buschenschank.
The cultural highlights of Villandro include the Archeoparc in the centre of the main village, several churches spread all over the municipal territory and the show mine of Villandro, making you familiar with the history of mining in this place. To solemnly conclude your holidays, we recommend you an evening in the historic residence “Zum Steinbock”, hosting a gourmet restaurant.
