Panorama trail in the winter wonderland of South Tyrol

While hiking in the winter sun of South Tyrol you can enjoy the white winter landscape to the fullest. The hiking trails on the Rittner Horn are perfectly suited for this. The panoramic trail at the Rittner is an easy hike for the whole family, where you don't have to overcome any altitude difference. The trail is about 2.5 kilometers long and starts at the mountain station of the cable car Rittner Horn. At the viewpoint Runder Tisch you can enjoy a wonderful winter panorama of the Dolomites. Afterwards you hike on the tracked hiking trail to the lookout point Dolomitoskop. After about 2 hours the circular hike leads you back to the starting point. Guided hikes with snowshoes are also offered at the Rittner Horn.
