Parcines and its surrounding villages of Rablà and Tel are located just six kilometers from the spa town of Merano, at the entrance of the Texelgruppe Nature Park.
At the end of the 19th century, the famous Austrian dramatist Arthur Schnitzler described our home village as follows: "Parcines was there as if a tired God had daubed it on the mountain slope and all people walked in such a relaxed way as if breathing were their only activity and spring lied over the mountains and valleys in a heavy and dreamy way".
Well, we inhabitants of Parcines aren't that phlegmatic anymore because we spoil and feed our guests with lots of energy and good mood. The motto today is experiencing sporting adventures and dedicating yourselves to the pleasures of life and relaxation in a rural ambience.
