Approaching the Rastenbach gorge, on your way down from Altenburg/Castelvecchio to Lake Kaltern, it suddenly gets really cool and dark. Your steps become more cautious, as if you’re being careful not to disturb the peace. Silently, you look around and enjoy the wonderfully refreshing ambiance. How reassuring to know that the wooden stairs and bridges are reinforced and properly secured. When you get to the bottom of the trail, you are welcomed by a sunny field and Lake Kaltern.

Getting there

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

By foot: from the sport area in St. Anton/S. Antonio follow the peace path (trail mark n. 11) until reaching Altenburg/Castelvecchio. As an alternative, you can also start from St. Josef/S. Giuseppe, cross the Rastenbach gorge (trail mark n. 1) to Altenburg/Castelvecchio.

By bus: regular bus connections to Altenburg/Castelvecchio (Citybus 135.5)
