Explore tip

They are said to be the most beautiful and the highest in Europe, 25,000 years old, and protected from the rain by a stone “cap” – we’re talking about the Ritten earth pyramids. Our lodge in Ritten does not bear the address Via delle Piramidi 1 for nothing: the Ritten themed trail leads directly past our feel-good lodge to the bizarre rock formations at the Valletta di Rio Rivellone/Katzenbachgraben gorge. What are you waiting for? Go on an active holiday in South Tyrol!

From the lodge in Ritten to Bolzano

On foot from Pippo's Mountain Lodge to the Rittner cable car: 5 minutes. With the Rittner cable car from Oberbozen to Bolzano: 12 minutes. Cost: zero euros with your free Ritten Card. Mountain-road lovers can, of course, also get to Bolzano by car, and adventurers can choose one of the two trails that lead right past your base camp and take you to the provincial capital. Many roads lead to Rome, as they say, and all of them lead to Bolzano! Discover the alpine city on the Adige!

Naturally memorable
