Hike & Bike Eggental – You can't decide whether you'd rather explore the Eggental on foot or by bike? Then it's best to do both! The Eggental E-Bike Sharing in combination with our countless hiking routes make it possible.

From Welschnofen | Nova Levante, the trail leads below the imposing Rosengarten | Catinaccio to the Latemar, also known as the shape-shifter. The pale mountain shows itself in different shapes depending on the location, and the destination of this hike is the only managed refuge hut in the middle of this quiet rocky scenery. The hut is also called the "Torre di Pisa hut" because of a striking, sloping pinnacle about 20 m high, reminiscent of the leaning tower of Pisa.
