Kaltern offers you many different activities – especially in summertime. Hikers and bikers will love the location of our home, as the "Kalterer Höhenweg" and the old path to the Mendel both are accessible right next to our house and a mountainbike trail is starting in front of the door. The owner can surely give you further insider information. The Mendola funicular railway allows all not-that-sporty-people to go to the Mendel without effort. A ride on the cable car is an adventure for both younger and older people. You can reach the valley station in a ten-minute-walk. From the summit station you have a wonderful view until the Dolomites. If you want an even better viewpoint, we recommend hiking to the Penegal mountain, you will find half of South Tyrol at your feet.
Joggers will love the way to the sports centre at St. Anton. Arrived there, you can decide between a keep-fit-trail, a bowling alley, high rope course and a beach-volleyball-pitch. Walking, you can reach the sports centre in 15-20 minutes, going by car, it will take you only five minutes to get there. The centre also is a perfect place to start a trip with children: you can go to Altenburg with his amazing view over the lake or visit the fascinating gorge called Rastenbach ravine.
You definitely shouldn't miss a visit to the lake, regardless of wether you prefer swimming, surfing or having a trip on a paddleboat. In spring or autumn, we recommend a hiking tour round the lake or a visit to either the habitat at the south-east of the lake or the so-called valley of spring. The lake is at a distance of a 10-minutes-drive in your car or with a special bus driving from the centre of Kaltern to the lake and back. If you search for something different, you might want to visit the Montiggl lakes.
If the weather should be bad some day, you can visit the South Tyrolian Wine Museum situated in the town centre of Kaltern or the world wide known Ötzi - The Iceman at Bozen, or you just do some shopping in the arcades of Bozen or Meran.
The Tourist association Kaltern, located at the main square, daily offers different activities (e.g. guided bike or hiking tours, town visits or a trip in a carriage) and can provide further information. You may also like the new tourist's app provided by them Kaltern App.
