Le Cave

A hike to the lake of Pontelletto and a cool beer in the Andreas Hofer brewery must be part of your holidays in Le Cave.

Le Cave is located at 844 m asl and has some 75 inhabitants. Once the northernmost locality of Fortezza was an important transshipment station along the Brennero railway line.

From the hikers’ parking space in Le Cave, that can be reached via a narrow mountain road, the hike to the beautiful lake Pontelletto (1,850 m) starts, which is located at the homonymous alpine pasture, ideal for a stop in summer months. Other worthwhile destinations are the Bergeralm and the Sulernalm alpine pasture. In winter Le Cave offers an ice fall of 6 rope lengths, located close to the collecting tank of Le Cave.

Moreover there is a show electric power plant, in which the production current is illustrated. Only a stone’s throw, there is a waterfall, so in this place you can experience the interaction of nature and technique at first hand.

Our tip: a visit of the Andreas Hofer brewery in the historic Sachsenklemme and a tasty glass of locally brewed beer.
