With their quiet and panoramic location above the South Tyrol Val d’Adige/Etschtal Valley, Tesimo/Tisens
, two villages south of Merano/Meran, were noted as hiking retreats
for the aristocracy and landowners in past centuries. The many castles and mansions
in the area are still evidence of this tradition.
An extensive network of hiking trails
stretches over the sunny hills of Tesimo -Prissiano, from easy hikes
to summit tours
on the Laugen mountain. From here, it is possible to hike to panoramic vantage points such as St. Hippolyt or St. Jakob. There are many thematic routes and adventure trails
in Tesimo - Prissiano, which make for a special hiking experience year round.
