Castelbello-Ciardes/Kastelbell-Tschars is situated in the Lower Venosta Valley at the foot of the picturesque 3000m high peaks along the border with Naturno/Naturns and the rugged Schnalstal valley. It offers challenging hiking tours to secluded mountain farms, crystal-clear mountain lakes and traditional Alpine pastures. It also offers comfortable walks along the irrigation channel paths
, through sunny fruit orchards
and the romantic vineyard
landscape along the Adige River, with impressive views on the snow-covered Ortler mountain massif and the mighty Dolomites.
Castelbello is famous far beyond the borders of the Venosta Valley for its natural products and delicious cuisine. Pears, apples and asparagus are typical products of Castelbello-Ciardes and form the basis of the traditional regional cuisine.
