Sun-drenched, cheerful and world-renowned. Tramin on the South Tyrolean Wine Route is not only famous for its southern location, Mediterranean vegetation and lively lifestyle - the internationally famous Gewürztraminer has its roots here. South Tyrolean wine is regularly the focus of traditional village festivals and events. The historic wine village inspires with its relaxed mix of old and new. Rustic wine cellars, colorful house facades, historic mansions, sacred architecture and the modern architecture of the Tramin winery characterize the livable village.
The South Tyrolean Wine Route can be easily explored on foot; numerous hiking trails lead through the landscape, some of which are also suitable for strollers. No matter whether you want to hike directly to Lake Kaltern or marvel at art-historical evidence in the little church of St. Jakob on the Kastelaz hiking trail. Hiking destinations further up, such as in the Mendel Mountains or in the Trudner Horn Nature Park, promise unforgettable impressions of nature and an enjoyable break in one of the many family-run huts.
Tramin is very well known as a starting point for extensive bike tours through the Adige Valley and beyond. Kilometers of cycle paths lead to the state capital of Bolzano, Meran or Lake Garda. As early as March, experienced bikers explore the Traminer or Kalterer Höhenweg, while the apple blossom in the valley calls for a bike trip with the whole family. In midsummer you can go high on exciting bike tours on the Roen and the Trudner Horn, or if you prefer to go to the water, you can easily reach Lake Kaltern and the Montiggler lakes on two wheels.
Vineyards characterize the image of Tramin, the vines of Gewürztraminer, the type of wine to which the village owes its name, extend right up to the house facades. But other grape varieties also feel at home on the sunny slopes. That's why the wine village of Tramin and the villages along the South Tyrolean Wine Route celebrate the grape juice with pleasure. A lively program of events combines the enjoyment of fine wines with regional specialties. The lively wine culture can also be experienced in the architecture. Historical mansions adorn the landscape, the modern Tramin winery sets new accents in architecture and young and old meet in the wine shops to enjoy the finer things in life.
The people of Tramin are proud of their lively customs, especially the Egetmann parade in Tramin. This takes place every two years on Shrove Tuesday and goes back to the ancient custom in which winter is symbolically driven out of the country at the wedding of Egetmann Hansl. Only men act as the historical figures of the foolish wedding party and parade through the streets in the elaborately designed floats. The “Schnappviecher”, the loudest actors in this play, are impressive.
In Villa Naj you can get up close and personal with Tramin's wine culture: host Jan is also a winemaker. He regularly invites his guests to vineyard tours and wine tastings. The perfect opportunity to taste your own red and white wines.
