Located in the west of the Adige river, only a stone’s throw from Bolzano and characterised by a rather southern atmosphere, there is the municipality of Vadena.

The municipality of Vadena is located only 8 km from the provincial capital and offers its visitors a varied landscape as well as a rather Mediterranean landscape. Surrounded by the lush green of the apple trees and forests, the municipality directly borders on the east Caldaro lakeside. The municipality itself consists of several little villages - Vadena Nuova, Birti, Campi al Lago on the shores of Lakes Caldaro (and therefore usually seen as a component locality of Caldaro), Caneve, Carnel, Masetta, Monte, Mover, Cervo, Piccolongo, Stadio-Laimburg and Ischia-Frizzi - and is mainly characterised by fruit and vine-growing.

By the way also the agricultural school and research centre Laimburg makes part of the municipality, so does the famous “Felsenkeller”. The latter is a famous cellar where the governor of South Tyrol often welcomes associations such as music bands or fire brigades in order to thank them for their work. Also other events take place in this cellar in the "rocks".

Cycling tours, hiking tours, extended tours on your motorbike, or also a day in at the waters of the lake... the variety of offers is huge and the visitors' needs are satisfies, no doubt. Also the hiking areas of the Bassa Atesina, that is to say Castelvetere or Aldino-Redagno can easily be reached.

Our tip: particularly recommendable is a walk to Castelchiaro, which is located on the hill above Lake Caldaro.
