At the beginning the walk you have uninterrupted views of the surrounding mountain world, then the path plunges into dense forest. After around 1½ hours you reach your destination, the high plateau of the Leadner Alm, where you can enjoy the beautiful panorama of the Dolomite, Brenta and Texel ranges. There are horses for the children to admire. On the way back those wishing to do more can visit the “Knottnkino”, with cinema seats to allow you to enjoy the magnificent view.
The Laugen Alm is reached by a trail that constantly rises through the forest, shading walkers from the sun. The occasional streams that are crossed are a particular attraction and motivation for children. Shortly before the destination wonderful views open up of the surrounding scenery: the large and small Laugen peaks, the Brenta group and the summit of the Gantkofel mountain. The Laugen Alm hut is open from May to October, while in winter the forest trail is suitable for sledging.
Felt art trail near Tisens
The path leads through the forest and past works of art made of felt, primarily inspired by the local world of legends. New works of art are constantly being added: unfortunately, owing to disintegration or vandalism, some works of art have faded or are no longer complete. The path ends at the chapel of St. Christoph on the Vorbichl, a mystical place surrounded by legend, which offers views down into the district of the Burggrafenamt.
Walk around Lake Kaltern
The path first leads through apple orchards, with the lake on the right and ahead the cone of debris that separates the Etsch Valley from the Überetsch region. After half an hour or so you reach the eastern bank of the lake where you can enjoy views over the lake and the Überetsch., as well as gaining an impression of the flora and fauna of the lake and its surroundings. The wooden jetties running through a biotope are also particularly interesting for children.
The Ritten earth pyramids
From Bozen take the cable car to Oberbozen, then the romantic narrow-gauge railway (over 100 years old) to Klobenstein. This trip is an experience for the whole family, and en route you gain a first impression of the variety offered by the Ritten high plateau. The path runs through shaded mixed woodland, with occasional views of the Schlern massif opposite. After a good hour you reach your destination, with the earth pillars visible on the right-hand side of the valley. There are some opportunities to enjoy refreshments along the way.
