South Tyrol's south is ideal for your hiking holiday in South Tyrol. Spring starts a little bit earlier than in other parts of the country here and colourful autumn bestows pleasant temperatures on us well into November. Thanks to the variety of walking trails, well signposted hiking routes, tours of the peaks and themed hikes a hiking holiday in South Tyrol is guaranteed to be an adventure!
In the spring you set off on floral and asparagus hikes, in the summer you conquer rewarding peaks and in the autumn sociable "Törggelen" hikes await you with the traditional feast afterwards. Hiking for beginners and the experienced is possible in South Tyrol's south.
Every week we accompany you on the most stunning hikes in the surrounding area.
An easy hike for leisurely walkers: On your hiking holiday in South Tyrol you hike from Cornaiano/Girlan eastwards, past the Jesuheim, when you can already see the wonderful Marklhof restaurant. 200 metres after this restaurant you reach the viewing point. Enjoy the stunning panorama. Return to the restaurant and then walk along hiking trail No. 1. After roughly an hour of walking you reach the ruins of Castel Firmiano/Schloss Sigmundskron, a majestic living witness of the Middle Ages. You now have the option of taking the bus from Frangarto/Frangart to Appiano/Eppan or returning to Cornaiano/Girlan and your spa hotel in South Tyrol on the same route.
All around Appiano/Eppan there are a range of interesting themed routes which should not be missed on your hiking holiday in South Tyrol: the Dürer trail (Egna/Neumarkt to Salorno/Salurn), Peace trail and Wine trail (Caldaro/Kaltern), educational wine trail (Cortaccia/Kurtatsch), nature adventure trail (Castelfeder), Renon/Ritten themed trail and Renon/Ritten Keschtnweg.
We will be happy to provide you with all the details for your hikes and advise you!
The ice holes situated between Caldaro/Kaltern and Appiano/Eppan are definitely worth seeing, a unique natural phenomenon, providing refreshment for you on your hiking holiday in South Tyrol. The airflow in the system of cracks provides refreshing cooling down in the stone hollows. Here you can also find almost 600 plant species which exploit the changing climate for themselves.
The name says it all. Spring Valley got its name from the unparalleled profusion of flowers that can be found here in the spring months (from February/March). Admire and marvel at this unique natural beauty during a long walk in the wonderful Spring Valley on your hiking holiday in South Tyrol. Thousands of primroses, liverworts, violets and the wonderfully red lungworts add colour to the landscape. Please note that you are not allowed to pluck the flower.
