Avelengo village

The centre of the village of Avelengo has been preserved its rural character up to the present day.

Avelengo, the main village of the homonymous municipality, is located in an idyllic position high above the valley basin of Merano, surrounded by an intact natural landscape. Located only a stone’s throw from the thermal town, rural life has been preserved up to the present day. Farmsteads, large fields and grazing horses characterise the region.

The parish church dedicated to St. John in the centre attracts due to its prehistoric stone relief at the exterior facade. Also worth a visit is the little sacrament building located between the Locherweg path and the access to the Nusserhof farm, dating back to the period of the pest around 1600.
A peculiarity of Avelengo are also its famous horses, which owe their name to the village from which they originate. Today they are among the most versatile horse breeds in the world and have their origin here in the South Tyrolean mountains. So we find the Haflinger also still today in the coat of arms of the municipality of Avelengo.

Our tip: a hike to the Alpe di Verano as well as a walk to the so-called “Knottnkino”, a natural cinema. A special natural experience for the whole family!
