The municipality of Nalles has got one 1,800 inhabitants and extends between 320 and 1,000 m asl. Located between Merano e Bolzano on the one hand and valley bottom and mountain on the other side, Nalles nestles in a cultural landscape of orchards and vineyards, as it is also the northernmost village belonging to the South Tyrolean Wine Route. A wine tasting in the most ancient wine cellar of South Tyrol, which is Castel Schwanburg, is a good bet for a stay in the village.
From a climatic viewpoint, Nalles benefits from the mild climate of the basin of Merano, that favourites not only the cultivation of vines, but also of roses: in fact in the “village of roses“ these royal flowers are cultivated as far as the eye can see.
Nalles is also very popular with passionate hikers and mountain bikers, coming to the village not only on the occasion of the “Cross-Country E1“ competition in spring. Other events casting a spell over its visitors are the antique car race, the Horse Riding festival in early summer as well as the village festival taking place every two years. A lasting experience is Nalles above all, but not only, in the period of the apple blossom in spring.
