Castelrotto lies on a sunny plateau at the foot of the Alpe di Siusi and offers wonderful panoramic views of the Dolomites. It’s only a 15-minute drive to the alpine pasture, 20 minutes to Ortisei, 30 minutes to Bressanone and Bolzano, and about an hour to the famous spa town of Merano. There are excellent bus connections: A bus leaves for Bolzano every half-hour, and every hour for Ortisei and Bressanone. A wonderfully quiet location, yet only a short distance from the hustle and bustle of the cities.
The town of Castelrotto owes much of its fame to the Kastelruther Spatzen band – this well-known folk music group is a headline attraction. The Castelrotto municipal area extends from 720 m (San Vigilio di Marebbe) up to 2,000 m (Alpe di Siusi) and consists of the main town of Castelrotto and 11 surrounding hamlets. The name is derived from ‘Castellum Ruptum’, its former castle or palace, of which nothing now remains apart from a few traces in the Chapel of St. Antony at Kofel.
