Above shines the sun, all around are the pale Dolomites, while down below colourful butterflies flit among the flowering meadows. And, in the midst of it all, are walkers and mountain climbers, nature lovers and fresh air enthusiasts enjoying life. There are no fewer than 530 kilometres of hiking trails in and around the Eggental valley in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Dolomites. Long routes, short routes, flat paths, steep climbs: from strolls to mountaineering challenges, anything is possible!
The Latemar massif is a hiking gem: Obereggen sparkles in the summer sun to its west, 15 tours start directly from the village, and the Latemarium is a guarantee of incredible experiences for the inquisitive, the active and the adventurous! The high mountains are dotted with ancient farmsteads and lush green mountain meadows. For those who prefer to take a leisurely stroll and stop off for a bite to eat along the way, you will find numerous mountain huts<LINK>, such as the Oberholz hut, offering South Tyrolean delicacies.
There are six lifts and cable cars as well as public buses and hiking shuttles available to transport hikers up and back down again. That means that you can embrace the spirit of sustainability – and leave your car safely at home!
