Steinegg is situated in the heart of the Rosengarten, Latemar, and Schlern massifs. Its enchanting views of the South Tyrolean Dolomites alone are reason for a visit. The scattered villages of Steinegg, Gummer/San Valentino in Campo, Karneid/Cornedo all'Isarco, Kardaun/Cardano, Blumau/Prato all’Isarco, and Breien/Briè are located between 275 and 1,650 m above sea level. On holidays here, the Burg Karneid castle, the symbol of the municipality, towers over the Eggental valley gorge and can be visited as part of a tour in the summer months. A visit to South Tyrol’s only astronomical observatory “Max Valier” as well as the planetarium in Obergummer are both highly recommended.
