From walking, to hiking

Nature offers a variety of perspectives with which to entrance visitors in and around the village of Kaltern. The wonderful Mediterranean landscape invites you to numerous hiking trips, to soft hills, through orchards and vineyards, from castle to castle, through colourful mixed forests and fragrant meadows. Enjoy the heights and depths of this region by climbing and walking through the medium and upper levels of mountain ranges. The views are incredible from the summits and peaks and give you a great and extensive view of our region. We are organising weekly guided hiking trips, as well as Nordic Walking tours. Walking sticks available in-house.

to mountaineering

More comfortable is a walk around the lake, a journey of discovery through a biotope, the meditation trail or the path up to Leuchtenburg Castle. Along the Kaltern mountain road, the Old Mendel trail or on a hiking trip to the Rastenbach canyon to the ruins of St. Peter in Altenburg, even the most adventurous will get excited. Those who have extensive experience in hiking and climbing can conquer the peak of the Mendelkamm.

Cycling holiday in Kaltern

Cycling will be an even more fantastic experience when you go on route during the apple blossom period. Cycling along the trails and through a sea of blossoms can be a fantastic experience. Especially the area around Kaltern is most suitable for cyclists and mountain bike riders. From cycling trails along the Mendelsteig right down to the valley: there are routes of all grades of difficulties. Even race cyclists will enjoy the Reggl mountain tour down to Kohlern near Bozen. Please note – this is one of the longer routes.
