San Genesio

The idyllic village is located at 1,087 metres above sea level on the high-alpine plateau of Alesino at the southern slope of Tschögglberg hill between the Isarco Valley to the west, the Bolzano valley basin to the south, the Sarentino Valley to the east and the Merano 2000 ski resort to the north. The European E5 hiking path leads through the village. The village includes the main town San Genesio and the four harbours Avigna, Valas, Cologna and Montoppio.

San Genesio has plenty of leisure time activities to offer for guests. Hiking, Nordic walking, mountain-biking, horse riding, outings on horse-drawn carriages and of the traditional "Törggelen" (chestnuts and young wine) are amongst the most popular. Furthermore, San Genesio offers plenty of variety: an outdoor pool, a sports facility with 3 sand tennis courts and bowling lanes.

Many well sign-posted hiking paths and traditional alpine huts and refuges are ideal for families with children. During relaxing walks you can enjoy the impressive panoramic view of the Dolomites, the Alps, and numerous interesting sights like the pyramids in San Genesio.

Thanks to the immediate vicinity to the capital of South Tyrol, namely Bolzano, the mild climate and the position on the splendid high-alpine plateau of Alesino with vast alpine pastures and meadows, and the round view of nearby high-alpine mountain summits, San Genesio is a renowned destination for hiking holidays in South Tyrol. The sunny village in the heart of South Tyrol provides a starting point for recreational, adventurous and relaxing hikes during all seasons. In addition to comfortable family hikes you can also enjoy demanding tours like the crossing to the high-alpine plateau of Merano 2000 or the Sarentino Valley.
