Ritten - the sunny plateau
The high plateau offers magnificent views over South Tyrol's mountain world with a breathtaking 360° panorama.
The vacation apartment is located in Oberbozen, at the southern tip of the high plateau. Here you can enjoy the sun at about 1,200 m above sea level.
Oberbozen has many small stores, a butcher's store, as well as cafes and restaurants and a supermarket, which you can easily reach on foot.
For hikes or walks you can start directly from the front door. The Ritten offers a well-developed network of hiking and walking trails that will take you up to the Rittner Horn, to Bolzano or Klobenstein. In the summer months, the outdoor pools of Oberbozen and Klobenstein, as well as the lake Wolfsgrubener See are ready for you to cool off. In winter the Ritten Arena in Klobenstein and the ice rink in Oberbozen invite you to ice skating.
You can reach South Tyrol's capital in a panoramic way with the cable car, which takes you to Bolzano in about 12 minutes.
There you can counter relaxed under the arcades. Explore the old town during a stroll through the fruit market, which is open all year round, a typical Italian "caffè" or a glass of South Tyrolean wine in one of the numerous bars and restaurants in town.
The Museum of Natural History or the Museum of Archaeology, with South Tyrol's famous Iceman - Ötzi, also invite you to explore.
From Bolzano you can also easily reach the rest of the province by bus and train.
