Terenten – holidays in sunny village

In any case, its title "sunny village" is justifiable. Terenten is located in the "lower" Pustertal Valley, but not on the valley floor, but on about 1,200 m above sea level on a wonderful alpine plateau - which is much sunnier than many places in South Tyrol.

Bright sunshine, you can nearly touch the sky and towards southeast you will have a breathtaking view to the Dolomites. With such scenery it is no wonder that people have settled here already in primeval times. Terenten therefore has a very long and eventful history: from a prehistoric settlement through a rural mountain village to a pretty holiday resort in the vicinity of the Kronplatz, with more than 1,200 guest beds.

By the way: The name Terenten derives from the Latin word "torrentum" that means torrent. Allegedly the first settlement was situated along the banks of a rushing stream.

Modern hotel complexes, but also nice apartments, cozy guesthouses and rustic farms ensure that you will come to know country and people. Especially nature lovers and passionate hikers will be more than glad, because many possibilities are waiting for them: For example pleasant tours on a nature trail, to the earthy pyramids or through the biotope "Pirchner Moos"; or the popular walking-trip to the refuge Tiefrastenhütte or the challenging mountain tour to the top of the Eidechsspitze.

But there are as well available many other sports: from tennis, horse riding and biking to sledging, cross-country skiing and skiing on the Kronplatz. And a tip for gourmets: Every year from August to October, the so called "s'Terner Schmelzpfandl" provides you with traditional delicacies and rural specialties. Terenten: experience and enjoy!
