The fairy-tale lake

The magical Lago di Carezza has sought out a cosy hollow for itself on the edge of the dense woodland of the Latemar area, at the foot of the pale and mighty Latemar massif. This fairy-tale lake, set at 1,502 metres above sea level, is where - according to legend - a beautiful siren once lived: it boasts shimmering colours and a picture-postcard backdrop to delight visitors, who will not only be able to feast their eyes on it but also enjoy numerous walks around it. A Visitor Centre serves refreshments and souvenirs, while the circular walk around the lake provides some gentle exercise. Don't forget your camera!

Experience: hiking in Latemarium

Latemarium is the name of the hiking country around the Latemar massif. Themed paths and adventure trails, viewing platforms, a high ropes course, a children's park, bike trail and running circuit all provide incentives for getting out and about in the mountains, enjoying the views, exploring the countryside and following the traces of nature. Children, leisurely strollers and expert mountain hikers will all love Latemarium!

King Laurin's Rose Garden

The highest point of the Rosengarten group, the Catinaccio d'Antermoia, rises 3,004 metres above sea level. There are other peaks to keep it company, mainly the Cima Catinaccio, the Vajolet Towers, the Roda di Vaèl and the Torre Finestra. Anyone out and about on the hiking paths, fixed-rope routes (‘via ferrata’), mountain bike trails or taking the lifts in this legendary mountain ‘garden’ will find shelter and refreshment at a total of 11 huts, usually complete with a friendly landlord ready to recount the story of King Laurin's Rose Garden and the phenomenon of the 'Alpine Glow'.
