Situated dramatically between the Latemar and Rosengarten massifs, with views of the striking rock formations of Schlern, Zanggen, Weißhorn and Schwarzhorn, lies the municipality of Nova Ponente. It includes the villages of Ega/Eggen, Obereggen, and Petersberg and the main village of Nova Ponente. Holidaymakers here can expect hikes of various degrees of difficulty as well as guided themed hikes, all of which are easily accessible by public transportation. In winter, the Obereggen ski area is a true paradise for skiing, winter hiking, night sledging and cross-country skiing. South Tyrol’s most popular pilgrimage site, the Maria Weißenstein monastery, is located in the Val d'Ega/Eggental valley.
