Family hike: To castles and ice holes (Überetsch)

Ice holes near Eppan

Altitude start: 450m
End altitude: 450m
Difficulty level: easy
Walking time: 2 hours; length: 5.8km

From a physical condition perspective not a challenge but all the more impressive is the hike from St. Michael/Eppan to the ice holes at the foot of the Gandberg. The family-friendly tour starts in the upper part of St. Michael near the ice rink. Along an easy path, a small chapel and Moss Castle can be visited.

The sign "Steinegger" then points the way to the inn of the same name. Just before reaching it, however, a path branches off, leading to the unique natural spectacle, the ice holes. In the middle of summer, impressive icicles and plants grow here in the rocks at cool temperatures, which are normally only admired from 1,200 meters above sea level.

Hotel Christof

Appiano ★★★★

Nature and tranquillity – but not far from the action. Modern and contemporary, but no standard thing. Attractive gourmet packages, every day, but not everyday. Authentic experiences on the subject of wine, but not just that. An oasis of well-being, but reduced to the essentials.

The Hotel is a home for all those who are looking for something special: The quiet location amidst the vineyards with a breathtaking view of Lake Caldaro, the seemingly endless vineyards and orchards, the rolling countryside and the idyllic villages. Warm hospitality and attentive service are very important to us. Our work is our passion and we love to spoil our guests on holiday and make them completely happy and satisfied.
