Schlanders (German pronunciation: [ˈʃlandɐs]; Italian: Silandro [siˈlandro]) is a comune (municipality) in South Tyrol in northern Italy, located about 50 kilometres (31 mi) west of the city of Bolzano.
Schlanders is well-known because of its church tower, 92 metres (302 ft) high, which is also the highest in South Tyrol. Another attraction is the renovated castle, which now serves as a civic hall (including a public library).
The locality was mentioned for the first time officially on 13 June 1077 in a deed of donation, where the Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV. handed over the town to Altwin, the Bishop of Brixen.
