Nature awakening on the mountain

Lilac harbingers of spring: the unique crocus blossom in South Tyrol’s high Alpine pastures

The green buds slowly poke their way through the half-frozen earth and grow towards the sun while a thick blanket of snow covers the surrounding mountain peaks. And then the crocuses suddenly open their flowers and transform the wintry meadow into a lilac-white sea of flowers: there is virtually no other flower which represents the start of spring on the mountain like the crocus.

Our insider tip: the awakening of spring is particularly impressive in the South Tyrol high Alpine pastures where spring arrives once the snow has melted away. The blossoming of the Alpine crocuses is a nature's spectacle which takes place between mid-April and June , depending on the area, altitude and weather.

A walk across the South Tyrol high Alpine pastures is well worth it during spring months,  including relaxation-seekers: at this time of the year, the imposing mountain scenery of South Tyrol and the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site will be all to yourself.

Experience the crocus flowers on the mountain

There are lots of beautiful spots where you can admire the crocus flowers. We have compiled the most beautiful for you: from the Armentara-Wiesen meadows to the Gsies Alpine trail, from Salten to the Seiser Alm Alpine pasture.

Be one of the first

South Tyrol's hiking season starts in spring. When the first mountain huts open their parlours and terraces to hiking fans, the first early bloomers drench the Alpine pastures in pastel shades and colours as far as the eye can see.
