    Crispy hill. In the direction of Lake Caldaro in any case. Before thinking carefully, whether the additional altitude must be. Otherwise, turn right into the valley. But you will be rewarded with a challenging climb and a great view of Lake Caldaro.

    An abbreviation of Überetsch in the lowlands, which has it all. From the lower country a bit steeper, therefore rather in the opposite direction from Lake Caldaro with rapid descent to recommend.

    Crisp rise. Good to warm the legs after winter.

    Beautiful, steep ascent with little traffic from the Adige Valley to the Kreiter Sattel (that's the name of the small pass). Luckily it is not too long :-). But good to drive.

    Crisp, but short climb up to the Kreiter Sattel - the descent starts briefly on a very narrow and rather poor route (06/2020), but becomes wider after a few 100 meters and is then well paved.

    The only road crossing over the Mitterberg at the level of the Kalterer See, past the ruins of the Laimburg and the Leuchtenburg. The Mitterberg consists essentially of volcanic rock, the Bozen quartz porphyry. On its eastern flank it is quite steep, the road leads over three hairpin bends with up to 14% to the saddle. The road has just been redone on the east side, so it has an excellent surface on this side. Once at the top, there is a much narrower bumpy stretch, but after a few hundred meters it will be fine again. Almost no traffic.

    From the Kalterer See ago pleasant in the slope. Conversely, from Etsch direction in the upper part is good steep.

    A crisp ascent from the Adige Valley to Lake Kaltern - a few kilometers further south it is completely flat, but the 14% ramp is of course the much sportier alternative. The road is perfectly paved on the east side 06/2020.

    For those who want to take the two short, crisp climbs with them instead of just strolling, I recommend my "Leuchtenburg" aft: from Sigmundskron to the bridge near Auer around Mitterberg - and take the two peaks on the Kreiter saddle with you. Because it is more violent from the lowlands, I also recommend tackling the climb from Lake Kaltern. By the way: For the locals, the saddle is funnily called "coyote pass". - Also recommended as a starting point for a nice short hike to the Leuchtenburg and possibly further to the Roßzähne, a split gesture information.

    nice tour of the lake, on the way back if you do not want to face the climb, you can finish the tour and return by the same road as the outward journey
