    Climb up to the castle, then turn left and sit on the wall. From there you have a fantastic view.

    For a long time, the Leuchtenburg was the seat of the judge of Kaltern.
    In the 17th century, the use of the facility ended and it was left to decay. Parts of the curtain wall and the hall with frescoes from the 15th century are still preserved. The ascent to the Leuchtenburg is very worthwhile, as you can enjoy a wonderful view of Kaltern, Lake Kaltern and the Adige Valley from here.

    The Leuchtenburg is the ruins of a hilltop castle above Lake Caldaro in South Tyrol. It is located at a 576 m s.l.m. high elevation in the south of the Mitterberg in the area of the municipality of Pfatten and overlooks the Adige Valley in the area of Überetsch and Unterland. Wikipedia

    The car park is small, arrive early in the tourist season.
    Take note of the advice on ticks in the area
    You can return along the forest road to make a circular walk.
    Entry into the castle is by an unfixed steel ladder - take care!
    Little remains of the the 15th centruy frescoes inside.

    Beautiful castle ruins, great views of Lake Caldaro, Caldaro and Eppan and down into the Adige Valley. Picnic opportunities in the castle area, also good to go with children.
