Naz-Sciaves: apple pleasure
Naz-Sciaves lies on a sunny plateau close to Bressanone, where the two valleys Valle Isarco and Val Pusteria meet. This "apple plateau" produces every year different tasty kinds of this fruit which is the protagonist of many events in the village: the Royal festival in spring, the Apple week in autumn, the Week of Culture and Delicacies, and the traditional Törggelen festival, in which the new wine can be tasted, with chestnuts and other local products. A real mosaic of colors and flavors will enrich your holiday with the best wines and foods from South Tyrol.
Due to its sunny position, the plateau is an excellent destination for pleasant hikes, offering a unique landscape in spring during the orchard blossoming. There are also many Nordic walking paths and trails taking to the farmhouses.
In an atmosphere made of old traditions and rural life, Naz-Sciaves and its hamlets offer their visitors a holiday surrounded by a blooming and unpolluted nature, with local festivals and hamlets boasting a long history. Besides the wonderful apple orchards, there are many natural beauties worth admiring, such as the Köstental chestnut wood in Aica with its trim-trail and the Raier Moos biotope in Rasa.
Do you love winter sport? Naz-Sciavez boasts a central position allowing to reach easily the surrounding ski areas: the nearest are Gitschberg - Maranza, Jochtal - Valles and Plose - Bressanone.
The Rudolf Bacher museum, the late-gothic parish Church of St. Philip and St. James in Naz and the parish church of St. Margaretha in Sciavez are particularly interesting from an historic and cultural point of view.
