Experience the alpine glow in Eggental

A very special phenomenon that vacationers in Eggental should not miss is the alpine glow. The mountains “glow” when the setting sun bathes their slopes and peaks in warm light, while the lower valleys are already in shadow. You can of course explain this natural spectacle physically - but it is much nicer to listen to a legend that is often told ...

Anyone who climbs in Eggental will find numerous challenges. The legendary Delagokante in the rose garden is one of the most popular climbing destinations in the entire Alpine region with a 4+ rating. And there are numerous other breathtaking routes in the immediate vicinity. Or how about one of the five secured via ferratas, for example on the Santner Pass or on the "Campanili del Latemar"? Newbies gain their first experience in the climbing garden in Karersee, where experts can instruct them in the elementary safety techniques.

And in the winter?

According to legend, the dwarf king Laurin had an underground crystal palace built in the rose garden. And anyone who has ever visited Eggental during the cold season does not wonder where this legend comes from. Because the wintry Dolomite landscape looks like an oversized palace in which millions of snow crystals sparkle in the sun.The Obereggen and Carezza ski areas, both members of the world's largest ski association “Dolomiti Superski”, offer the best piste conditions over a total of 90 km. If you want to take it a little easier, there are numerous cross-country ski trails and winter hiking trails. The Christmas market on Lake Karer is also an experience, where South Tyrolean handicrafts and typical delicacies are on offer. Numerous wood stoves provide warmth and radiate romance with their crackling fires. Visitors can also expect bizarre snow sculptures and a life-size crib.
