In addition to being popular destinations, the Dolomite passes are also starting points for experiencing this unique landscape of the Dolomites. The best way to do so is without a car: You can explore the passes in a sustainable way by walking, cycling, taking the cable car or public transport and enjoy the Dolomites for many years to come. Plan your tour via high-Alpine passes here.

The Karersee lake, which is located directly beneath the Karerpass, is easily accessible via public transport. Hikers can reach the lake on foot in summer and also in winter. Getting to Karersee lake 

The Seiser Alm near Bolzano/Bozen is the largest high alpine pasture in Europe and boasts unrivalled views of the Dolomites. In the calming silence and pure air, enjoy hiking, climbing and biking in summer, and skiing, cross-country skiing or a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride in winter.

The road to the Seiser Alm nature reserve is closed to private cars from 9 am to 5 pm. You can get there using the cable car from Seis/Siusi or by bus from Kastelruth/Castelrotto.

In Pfelders/Plan, a picturesque mountain village at the end of the Passeiertal valley, people enjoy strolling or enjoying a ride in a horse-drawn carriage. Families in particular appreciate the quiet atmosphere in the midst of the Texelgruppe Nature Park for hiking or cycling tours in summer and downhill skiing in winter. Cars and motorbikes must be parked in the large car park in front of the village entrance; this parking regulation is in effect for cable car users.


You can travel between the car park, the village and the lifts with the "village express", a train on wheels, as well as via shuttle buses or horse-drawn carriages.

A true oasis of tranquillity, where tradition and innovation meet, is located on the Vigiljoch pass above Lana near Meran/Merano. South Tyrolean star architect Matteo Thun, who works in Milan, designed the Vigilius Mountain Resort, a sustainable design hotel. Time-honoured and modern elements have always been effortlessly combined on the Vigiljoch pass. As always, the only connection up from the valley is the Vigiljoch cable car.

Thanks to a sustainable development plan, the Ritten high plateau and the Rittner Horn mountain can be easily and comfortably accessed via public transport. There is plenty of parking near the valley and mountain stations: You can therefore leave your car there and continue your journey by public transport, walking or cycling. You can reach the Rittner Horn mountain from Bolzano/Bozen by cable car. Once you reach the top, take advantage of the Rittner Bahn railway, take the bus to get around, or just take a leisurely hike. The Rittner Seilbahn cable car, which transports guests to the Rittner Horn mountain, can also be reached by public transport.
