Indian summer in South Tyrol

Experience the colourful autumn on the Tschögglberg mountain in the Sarntal Alps

As an ideal excursion destination for the whole family, the Tschögglberg mountain, a high plateau between Bolzano/Bozen and Meran/Merano at 1,100 to 1,500 metres above sea level, promises relaxed hikes across sunny Alpine meadows without any great altitude differences – on foot or on the back of the Haflinger horses native to the area. The Tschögglberg mountain is particularly beautiful in autumn: during this season, the extensive larch forests, which form the largest larch plateau in Europe, turn a bright golden yellow, and the clear air gives an expansive view of the surrounding mountains. 

If you want to immerse yourself in the mystical world of legends, take a hike to the “Stoanernen Mandln” (stone cairns): here, on a 2,000-metre-high ridge, there are over 100 figures formed from piled-up flat stones. Whether it is a Celtic place of worship, a meeting place for witches, an ancient power centre or simply a signpost for shepherds – there are countless legends about the significance of this magical place. What is certain is that the panoramic view of the South Tyrolean mountains from here is absolutely unique – even in winter

Hiking and marvelling at the Tschögglberg mountain

The Tschögglberg mountain hiking area spans as a mighty mountain range from Meran/Merano to Bolzano/Bozen. The sunny Salten high plateau is characterised by high pastures, larch forests and wide hiking trails. Your perfect place for panoramic hikes and bike tours!

In the realm of fables

South Tyrol is a region of fables. These have been passed down for generations and are still told today. Princesses, dwarfs, witches and mythical creatures lend a mystical magic to the most beautiful places. Let yourself be enchanted and inspired.
