Bolzano Bozen and environs
Winter holidays in the Rittner Horn ski area
The Rittner Horn mountain above Bolzano/Bozen is also known as the "Dolomite Lodge" for good reason. Here you can enjoy a 360° panorama in the heart of the South Tyrolean mountains as you enjoy fantastic views of the striking Dolomites then turn north to spot the main chain of the Alps. Families and nature lovers in particular will love the relaxed atmosphere in the easy-to-navigate Rittner Horn ski area. Elsewhere, cross-country skiers are busy discovering the wide Alpine pastures via the high-altitude trail from the Schwarzseespitze mountain station and sledging fans speed down the many curves on two runners. Comfortable winter hiking trails, some of which are even suitable for prams, lead across the entire high plateau. Journey from Bolzano with the cable car to Soprabolzano/Oberbozen then continue with the romantic narrow-gauge railway to Collalbo/Klobenstein. Ice skaters and ice skating professionals can make use of the 400-m speed skating rink, which is one of the fastest open-air skating rinks in the world thanks to its altitude.
