In the heart of South Tyrol in Northern Italy are the Sarntal Alps, which frame the rustic Sarntal Valley in a horseshoe shape. This natural mountain range stands for mountain solitude, idyll and tranquillity.
The Sarntal Alps present themselves as a gentle hiking area, whose peaks do not tower over the 3,000 meters above sea level. This makes them an attractive vacation destination at any time of the year.
- Earth pyramids on the Ritten
- Hirzer, 2,781 m – highest peak of the Sarntal Alps
