Approaching the Rastenbach gorge, on your way down from Altenburg/Castelvecchio to Lake Kaltern, it suddenly gets really cool and dark. Your steps become more cautious, as if you’re being careful not to disturb the peace. Silently, you look around and enjoy the wonderfully refreshing ambiance. How reassuring to know that the wooden stairs and bridges are reinforced and properly secured. When you get to the bottom of the trail, you are welcomed by a sunny field and Lake Kaltern.

By car: from the village centre, follow the road towards St. Anton/San Antonio, pass by the sport and keep on driving on the main road until reaching the district of Altenburg/Castelvecchio. Parking possibilities at the parking area Müllereck.

By foot: from the sport area in St. Anton/S. Antonio follow the peace path (trail mark n. 11) until reaching Altenburg/Castelvecchio. As an alternative, you can also start from St. Josef/S. Giuseppe, cross the Rastenbach gorge (trail mark n. 1) to Altenburg/Castelvecchio.

By bus: regular bus connections to Altenburg/Castelvecchio (Citybus 135.5)

The Rastenbachklamm gorge in Kaltern
No matter if you start your trip from Altenburg/Castelvecchio towards lake Kaltern or vice versa: while entering the Rastenbach gorge everything becomes immediately dark and fresh, your steps carefully. Smooth rocks alternate with roaring waterfalls and clear ponds. Those who wish, can admire the nature, others instead, will like to stop by and think of some fantastic stories. At the end of the path you will leave the forest and enter the bright sun: both down, at the lake or up in Altenburg/Castelvecchio. A wonderful hike for the whole family.
