Varna is located in the north of Bressanone and offers an abbey as well as a popular bathing pond

Beside the homonymous chief village, the municipality of Varna comprises the villages of Novacella, Scaleres and Spelonca and is considered to be an outer borough of Bressanone. Varna comprises an area ranging from the valley to the alpine area. The landscape surrounding Varna is characterised by vineyards and fruit orchards. Coming from north, Varna is the first vine-growing village you come across, therefore it is considered the "gate to the south".

Worth seeing in this place is the Novacella Abbey, boasting some striking elements such as the Gothic Via Crucis, the rotunda of the S. Michele chapel, the abbey church and the abbey winery with in-house wine production. An absolute must-do is a getaway to the Varna bathing pond, which has been under natural protection from 1977. A walk in the recreation zone along the Rio di Scaleres river, makes you indulge in the pleasure of relaxation, too.

Spelonca and Scaleres, however, take you into another world, as these mountain hamlets are ruled by the mountains. Due to their elevated position, they offer a great view. Athletically trained people can reach these two hamlets by mountain bike, while we recommend a tour on the Valle Isarco cycling trail to those who prefer more pleasant cycling.
