Top 10 Summer in Obereggen
Just a few kilometres west from Bolzano, at the mouth of the Eggental Valley, the road becomes surprisingly narrow. Vertical, at times overhanging red-brownish walls form a terrifying and imposing gorge. The road continues, trapped between a stream and rocky walls. At the end of the gorge it finally opens up to the majestic peaks of the Rosengarten/Latemar, surrounded by mountain pastures and ancient forests. A summer holiday in Obereggen is a special experience, away from the daily grind, in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
