Hike through the Valle della Primavera

This easy hike is particularly pleasant in spring when nature awakes and a sea of flowers cover the valley.

This easy but fascinating hike is best in early springtime, when the Valle della Primavera - literally the valley of spring - boasts countless spring flowers already. From such an early time in the year as March you may embark on this beautiful hike. Starting point is the parking site of Monticolo, a quaint hamlet that belongs to the municipality of Appiano. Here, already the first signpost tells you the way to the Valle della Primavera, also known as "Frühlingstal" in German.

The path leads directly to the basin surrounding Lake Caldaro. Beautiful flowers such as the lily of the valley and crocuses line this special kind of trail. When the Valle della Primavera ends, the path takes you further towards Lake Caldaro. Continue along a forest road and across vineyards until you reach an asphalted road. Now turn right and follow the road until you come to a path turning left. Here, at the eastern shore of Lake Caldaro, a signpost shows you the way to the western shore. From here, take the same way back to return to the starting point.

If you want to do this hike, please take information about the weather and the current conditions of the trail on site!
