San Martino

The cable car takes you from the village to the San Martino hiking and skiing area: Here lies the geographical centre of South Tyrol

San Martino, Reinswald in German, is located in the rear Val Sarentino and consists of Boscoriva and Hinterreinswald. What distinguishes San Martino from the other mountain villages is its cable car, which opens up the beauty of the Sarentino Alps. It starts at the edge of the village. Below is the centre with the Parish Church of St. Martin, which gives the village its Italian name. The bus also stops here: Line 152 comfortably connects the village with the main village of Sarentino.

A smelting site from the Bronze Age tells of the long settlement on these sunny slopes. In the Middle Ages, silver was mined below the Toter Rücken hill and the Black Lakes (Schwarzseen or Laghi Neri), before the 20th century brought the first guests. One of the beautiful places above San Martino, the Urle Pond, is known as the geographical centre of South Tyrol. The Urlesteig, a family-friendly theme trail with play stations along the mountain stream, was built around it.

The circular trail to the San Martino Mills, the tour to the Getrum Mountain Hut on the southern slopes of the Mt. Corno Planca and the mountain hike to the Cima San Cassiano and the Croce di Lazfons are also impressive summer experiences. In winter, the San Martino Ski Area opens its doors with a snow park, sledge run and numerous winter hiking trails. The wide sunny slopes are popular, and in the evenings the fun continues with moonlight sledging and a stop at a hut.
