A highly recommended spring or autumn hike for nature lovers and families through the vineyards of Lake Kaltern During the short hike we see the ruins of an ancient church and discover mysterious rocky inlets, castle ruins and an ancient mine among lolling plants. Once we have crossed the gorge, Lake Kaltern opens up before us.

Author’s recommendation

Lake Kaltern is one of the warmest bathing lakes in the Alps - in summer, a jump into the refreshing water is the perfect end to the tour.
