Vilpian ... small but nice

At 264 meters above sea level you find the small village of Vilpian, halfway between the two main centers of South Tyrol, Bolzano and Merano. Behind the village, at the foot of the „Tschöggelberg“, the waterfall of Vilpiano falls about 82 m into the depths

A small cable car (WinePass) brings nature lovers to Schlaneid near Mölten on the Tschögglberg. The about 1.000 m higher located Salten-Hochland invites you to find refreshment on a warm summer day or a homelike picnic in the countryside.

If you look a little closer, you can see two church towers in the heart oft he village. The older church dates from 1639, while the new parish church was completed in 1965. Inside there is a large crucifix on the high altar (17th century), on loan from the Meran City Museum.

 Vilpian, speak Terlano

Vilpian belongs together with Siebeneich as a fraction to the wine village of Terlan. Vilpian and Terlan enjoy a particularly quiet but strategic location in the Adige Valley, surrounded by vineyards and fruit gardens. Attractions include the Parish Church of the Assumption, built in the Gothic style in the 14th century. Particularly striking is the colorful glazed tile roof of the late Gothic tower from the 16th century. With 75 meters, it is the second highest tower in South Tyrol. Inside there are also Gothic frescoes by the so-called Bolzano School.

Worth seeing and easy reachable with a short hike, is the ruined castle „Neuhaus“. The castle was built at the beginning of the 13th century and was, according to myths, the most loved residence of the princess Margarethe Maultasch. Hence the name „Schloss Maultasch“.

Enjoy the spring...

Thanks to the Mediterranean climate, the spring in Terlan starts earlier. So you can enjoy the warm sunshine with us while somewhere else the winter clothing is still asked. While many small plants are still sleeping in their seeds, the asparagus already dares to stand out courageously. The magical aura around the asparagus pays the savings triangle, Vilpian, Siebeneich due attention every year in April and May and would like to celebrate this event with you as well.

Between grape vines and climbing fun

Everything has more power and life here (...) and one once again believes in one God»,  wrote Johann Wolfgang von Goethe when he reached South Tyrol in 1786.


Terlan is surrounded by vineyards and apple fields. In 2010, in the upper area of ??Terlano, the newly established "Wine Trail" was officially opened at the Terlano winery. On existing roads and paths, this themed trail leads from the Terlano winery through the Terlano vineyards; On numerous signs you will learn everything worth knowing about the Terlano wine history and culture.
