Castelrotto Peasant Wedding
The Castelrotto Peasant Wedding is a winter event on the Alpe di Siusi, which is celebrated every two years in January. As part of the event, there is a parade with a magnificently decorated horse-drawn sledge, which is accompanied by a wedding party in traditional costume. The festival is a reminder of the traditional Castelrotto Peasant Wedding in the 19th century and is accompanied by culinary delights of the habitual wedding cuisine.
Oswald von Wolkenstein Ride
The Oswald von Wolkenstein Ride takes place every year in June and is a highlight on the Castelrotto event calendar. The largest equestrian event in South Tyrol is dedicated to the medieval minstrel Oswald von Wolkenstein, who used to live in the ruins of Castle Hauenstein. The colourful event programme includes exhibition gallant fights, gaudy parades of carriages and horses, and medieval tournaments.
The Summer Classics are an integral part of the summer cultural programme in the villages and towns on the Alpe di Siusi. Classical music lovers can look forward to young and renowned artists visiting Castelrotto, who from July to August play the works of major composers. The artists are mainly from Italy and can build on international experience. The extraordinary concert series attracts lovers of classical music from the entire alpine region.
The Kastelruther Spatzen count among the most important representatives of alpine folk music. Every year in October, the music band organises the Kastelruther Spatzenfest in their home village. The event attracts visitors from all parts of South Tyrol. In the stunning backdrop of the Dolomites, the familiar songs of the Kastelruther Spatzen will enchant all fans of alpine folk music.
