This wonderful panoramic point is right next to the church in Altenburg/Castelvecchio and offers a stunning view towards Lake Kaltern and the homonymous village. Northwards you can see the mountain peaks of Hirzer/Punta Cervina and Ifinger/Picco Ivigna, but also the Sarner Scharte/Forcella Sarentina and the Rittner Horn/Corno del Renon. Eastwards instead you can see the peaks of Rosengarten/Catinaccio and Latemar, while southwards the view sweeps across the Etschtal/Val d’Adige.

Getting there

By car: from the village centre, follow the road towards St. Anton/S. Antonio, pass by the sport area  and keep on driving on the main road until reaching the district of Altenburg/Castelvecchio. Parking possibilities at the restaurant Altenburgerhof.
