In the heart of flourishing fruit orchards, there is the little village of Cermes, extending at the slopes of the Val d’Adige.
The municipality of Cermes is located between Marlengo and Lana at 292 m asl. It is dominated by the mighty Lebenberg Castle, a mansion dating back to the year 1426, built by the Lords of Marlengo and repeatedly enlarged. In the frame of a guided walk, you can experience the French ornamental garden, a three-storey chapel, the inner courtyards, the hall of knights and the rococo hall of mirrors. Further sights in the municipality are the S. Sebastiano parish church and the small S. Anna church.
Due to the vicinity of the city of Merano, which is distant only 5 km, we highly recommend you the spa town to make a pleasant shopping tour or a stroll through town. However, at Cermes the Passo Palade mountain road starts, which takes you to the areas of the Monte Luco and the Val d’Ultimo. This mountain road is particularly popular with motor cyclists heading to the Trentino.
Our tip: A hike on the Marlengo Waalweg path, which stretches past Castel Lebenberg. Of course combined with a visit to the castle.
