Tradition and culture

Many customs and traditions have stood the test of time, as they were passed on from generation to generation.

Today, like also many years ago, culture and customs are of utmost importance to the inhabitants of the Alpe di Siusi. A series of associations provide for the maintenance of ancient tradition, and the local music bands play on special occasions. On certain feast days people also wear their traditional costumes. The “Country Wedding of Castelrotto” takes place every two years and makes you experience culture and tradition at close quarters.
