Spring Valley

Between Caldaro and Appiano a varied path leads you across an area which enchants due to a blooming ocean of flowers

Between Lake Caldaro and the Monticolo Lakes in the Oltradige area in the south of South Tyrol, there is a pleasant hike leading you across a valley which in early spring, that's to say in late February or early March (depending on the weather), enchants thanks to a blooming ocean of flowers: the Spring Valley (Frühlingstal), also known as Fabion Valley.

The Spring Valley is located in a swampy hollow in a climatically beneficial location. For this reason already in early spring the warm air makes the flowers flourish. The sea of flowers around the small Angelbach brook and the path includes violet liverworts, crocuses in different colours and white spring snowflakes - they transform the entire valley into a colourful area.

By the way: As this area is protected, picking flowers is strictly forbidden! Also in summer and autumn, however, the Spring Valley (or Fabion Valley) attracts numerous hikers and lovers of nature, as also in these seasons this valley exerts a pull.
