High above Oltrisarco and Aslago, Castel Flavon towers into the sky, offering a breathtaking view on the city of Bolzano.
Oltrisarco and Aslago are two names of city districts that are typical for the period of the high Middle Ages, which testifies that this area has already been settled in this period of time. In the sixties Aslago was made up of few farms only, but has grown in the course of time. Today the city district begins at S. Giacomo/Laives and takes via the sports area to the Maso della Pieve and the city cemetery to the Via Claudia Augusta towards the Virgl mountain.
Aslago and Oltrisarco are divided from the city centre by the Isarco river. Particularly striking is Castel Flavon, towering on a rock spur above Aslago. The Via Claudia Augusta stretches across the entire city district. In part traffic on this road has been limited, so that you can enjoy ambling along and shopping. An ideal starting point for walks on the Regglberg and to the Virgl is the parking space near the Flavon castle. This is where several hiking trails take their way, offering a great view on the city of Bolzano.
