Hiking and mountaineering
Whether Rosengarten massif, Drei Zinnen, or the King Ortler:
The bizarre rock pinnacles and towers of the South Tyrolean mountains offer hikers and mountaineers breathtaking views and countless possibilities to explore! More than 13,000 km of unspoilt, marked hiking trails lead through the entire province and everywhere there are cosy huts and inns to dine or spend the night.
Surrounded by the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites, climbers complete the many thrilling vie ferrate while hikers on the Geotrail discover the exciting history behind the creation of these unique mountain massifs.
More serious mountaineers dare to venture on the Hochpustertal, Meran/Merano or Ortler Alpine ridgeways while families hike and explore Europe’s largest high-Alpine pasture, the Seiser Alm high plateau. Discover more about flora, fauna and the legends of South Tyrol along historic Waalweg canal or themed trails. And in autumn, hiking and enjoyment can be optimally combined on the Chestnut Trail (Keschtnweg) followed by a traditional Törggelen feast.
