Hiking paradise and sunny plateau ritten

Ritten, the holiday mountain in the heart of South Tyrol, is situated above the capital Bozen, reaching from vineyards and fruit plantations in the south to a beautiful landscape in the middle part with mountain villages and farms, to an alpine landscape on the 2260 meters high Rittnerhorn. On our high plateau no mountains block the view over the surrounding mountain landscape. A comfortable climate, beautiful nature and an idyllic landscape is inspirational for many artists and philosophers today as well as it was in the past.
For lovers of nature and activities Ritten is the place to be.

The Ritten railway opened for service on 13th August 1907, at that time connecting the main square of Bozen, the Waltherplatz, with Klobenstein, making Ritten easily accessible for tourism. It still connects Klobenstein and Oberbozen today. In addition, a cable car from Oberbozen to Bozen makes it very easy to get to the main city of South Tyrol.

People who see these massive mountains are overwhelmed. And you will be, too. Born as coral reefs 250 million years ago, they proudly soared skywards and are nowadays a must see for all hikers and mountaineers. They got their name from the French mineralogist Dolomieu. In August 2009, the Dolomites were declared UNESCO world heritage.
