The legendary Rosengarten is a mountain range in the Dolomites that extends between the Tiers, Eggental and Fassa valleys. It is not only famous for its 500 kilometres of hiking routes, seven fixed-rope routes, numerous climbing routes and, in the Carezza ski area, its exciting ski runs: the silhouette of its western slopes can be recognised and admired from as far away as Bolzano/Bozen. And, at sunset, the Rosengarten “blooms” or glows with a fiery rosy red: this is due to the phenomenon of the alpenglow, also known as the Enrosadira – or, according to legend, King Laurin’s curse.
As part of the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park, the Rosengarten is one of the oldest nature parks in South Tyrol. As the name suggests, it stretches between the Dolomite massifs of the Schlern in the east and the Rosengarten in the west.
