Nova Levante village

The impressive Latemar Circuit by mountain bike, the classic in the Val d’Ega valley, starts in Nova Levante village.

Against the backdrop of the Catinaccio massif, the houses, shops and restaurants of Nova Levante village (Welschnofen Dorf), the main village of the eponymous municipality, extend. The Val d'Ega Road, also known as the Dolomites Road, leads through the centre and then in hairpin bends through the elongated forest valley up to Lake Carezza and the Carezza Pass, which is 600 m higher than the centre of Nova Levante. Afterwards, it descends into the Val di Fassa in Trentino.

"Welcome to the realm of King Laurin" is the best description for this beautiful piece of South Tyrol at the foot of Mt. Catinaccio, which shines in the sunset glow: It is said to be the flowers in the legendary rose garden of the dwarf king that shine so brightly before sunset. Laurin himself bewitched it - no one should see it by day or night any more. But he had forgotten the twilight. Above Nova Levante also stretch the slopes of the highest wooded hill in Europe, the "Talt" in German or "Montalto di Nova" in Italian. The 1,756 m high hill can be reached on foot and by bike.

The Latemar Circuit by mountain bike also starts in the village: It takes you around the mountain massif and through a uniquely beautiful landscape in five hours. Hiking trails, on the other hand, lead up to the Nigra Pass, on the Hagner Trail directly to the Hagner Mountain Hut - one of the most beautiful spots on Mt. Catinaccio - and to the Messnerjoch Hut. Most of them can also be reached on a winter hike. In winter, Nova Levante village is the entry point to the Carezza Dolomites Ski Area, which is connected to the Dolomiti Superski ski carousel.
