Jenesien/San Genesio extends on the southern slope of the Tschögglberg/ Monzoccolo plateau.
It extends between the Etschtal valley in the west, the basin of Bozen in the south, the Sarntal valley in the east and the Meran 2000 skiing area in the north.
The sunny valley is situated in the heart of the Etschtal valley, far from traffic at an altitude of nearly 1,100 m and the capital Bozen is only ten kilometers away.
The Salten is one of the most beautiful larch meadows in the Alpine region.
Thanks to its extensive meadows and pastures, dark coniferous forests and the Mediterranean vegetation, the Salten plateau (Latin "Saltus" = wood) with its highland landscape is especially charming. Excursions across the Salten with its rich mountain flora and the breathtaking panoramic view of the mountain ridges satisfy all keen mountaineers.
The Salten, attractive all year round, is ideal for easy as well as extended excursion with a low difference in altitude.
