Ice holes

Winter in the middle of summer?

Ice holes are a very popular destination. It is quite cold in the 200-metre-long and 50-metre-wide cave at the foot of the Gandberg. The reason? Physics!

Warm air flows through the crack system in the porphyry blocks and is cooled in the process. At the bottom of the basin, the cold air escapes and turns the cavity into the famous ice holes. This is explained by the physical principle of the wind tube. Even high mountain plants, which otherwise grow at an altitude of 1,200 metres, feel at home in the ice holes. Discover the 600 different plant species and enjoy the coolness on chilly days.

From the Spring Valley to Lake Kaltern

Hike full of blossoms

A phenomenon that attracts visitors from all over South Tyrol takes place in the spring valley between the two Montiggl lakes and Lake Kaltern: yellow primroses, white mullein, violet liverworts, blue crocuses and primroses reach for the sky - a colourful natural carpet of blossoms delights the mind after the harsh winter days. In the middle of it all, the tranquil rivulet of the Angelbach meanders southwards. The walk is best enjoyed between mid-February and the end of March.
