The wine village of Termeno lies south of Caldaro Lake and is known as the home of the popular Gewürztraminer. Here, life is dominated mainly by fruit and wine-growing, which is particularly obvious in the landscape. The balmy vineyards and fruit meadows set the village in a green idyllic frame.
Termeno is one of the wonderful villages in South Tyrol's South, which has kept its original character. Narrow, winding streets and ornate, historical houses lend the oldest part of the village, also known as Betlehem, a picturesque air. The parish church of St. Quiricus and Julitta, which can hardly be missed with its 86 metre high church tower, is in the centre. Near the Town Hall Square the Village Museum was opened in 1989. It houses exhibits from Termeno's agricultural past. The villages of Sella and Ronchi, with an equally characteristic and traditional image, also form part of the village.
A particular highlight in Termeno during the warm summer months is the sports and adventure swimming pool. The surface of the water alone measures 1,300 m² and offers a Jacuzzi, a climbing wall and much more. The lawn, laid out in terraces, offers relaxation and invites you to fuel up on sunshine.
The importance of the wine industry in this village is reflected in the many festivals in Termeno. Thus, one of the most important events is the Gewürztraminer Symposium, at which the best Gewürztraminer wines are identified and which takes place almost every weekend from August to September. However, a further highlight has little to do with wine in a direct sense: the famous Egetmann Procession on Pancake Tuesday. This takes place only once every two years and is one of those events that you really should not miss.
