Farm Holidays in Terlan

The Terlan coat of arms takes centre stage on a Farm Holiday in Terlan  The open door means that guests can expect eventful hospitality. 

The two silver, wide-open doors on the Terlan coat of arms do not just stand for age-old hospitality and new experiences, but are symbolic in geographical and historical terms. Terlan lies before the door of Bozen, just 15 minutes' drive from the province capital. The silver colour of the doorrelates to Terlan's history; silver used to be mined here, mainly in the 15th century, which made Terlan a rich parish even then. The districts of Vilpian and Siebeneich, which also belong to the municipality, are also shaped by this history.

Wine taking centre stage

The second-oldest winery in South Tyrol may be found in Terlan. As well as the main winery in the village, there are lots of other smaller wine and Sekt cellars in the local area. Just taking a stroll through the village, you'll notice that wine plays a major role here. Terlan's Wine Path starts right at the winery and takes you through some lovely vineyards in the upper part of the village and past country houses and old farmhouses in around two hours. In spring and autumn, weekly guided tours are available. Wine also puts in an appearance at village festivities, and every year, on 25th May, St. Urban's night is celebrated in the village centre in honour of St. Urban, the patron saint of wine.

Three for the price of one

Anyone staying at a holiday flat or room in Terlan, Vilpian or Siebeneich can take advantage of seeing the attractions of the other two districts as well. In Terlan itself, this means the imposing parish church, which points to the wealth gained from silver mining. When trying to tell the time from the church clock you'll see if you take a closer look that the long hand shows the hours and the short hand the minutes. This church tower is a bit different in another respect, too. Shortly after its construction, it started to lean, until it was leaning over by ten metres and had to be re-built in the 19th century.

The castle ruins of Neuhaus are a sturdier but still interesting spot right above Terlan and may be reached in half an hour walking briskly. To compensate for the uphill climb, there are views over the whole Etsch river valley and you can get an impression of how the Count of Tirol may have felt looking out over his territory. A similar viewpoint is afforded by Greifenstein castle ruins, which is also known as 'Sauschloss', or 'Sow Castle', referring to an old legend. The path to Greifenstein begins in Siebeneich.
Vilpian, the third district, is the starting point for a walk leading to the 82-metre-high 'Unteren Wasserfall' in ten minutes.

Asparagus kings

There is more to Terlan than silver, legends and ruins. This place is well known in South Tyrol for its asparagus. 

There is more to Terlan than silver, legends and ruins. This place is well known in South Tyrol for its asparagus. 

This reyal vegetable, which could only be afforded by nobles in past times, has been grown in the so-called 'asparagus triangle' between Terlan, Vilpian and Siebeneich for over 100 years now. Even if asparagus has lost ground to apple farming over recent years, there are still 13 farmers growing asparagus in Terlan. The Terlan Asparagus Weeks take place in April and May in honour of this traditional vegetable, involving guided asparagus walks and bike tours. A Farm Holiday in Terlan is a fine opportunity to try the culinary fare served at lots of farms and inns in the form of dishes made from freshly-picked Terlan asparagus.
