The Earth Pyramids of Renon/Ritten

You can’t miss this wonder! We’re talking about the famous Earth Pyramids of Renon/Ritten, the highest and most beautiful earth pyramids in all of Europe. When you stand in front of these clay and stone giants, your eyes will grow wide and your jaw will drop – they are truly impressive. The bizarre structure with up to 30-metre-high pyramids of moraine clay from the Ice Age captivates their audience of all ages.

You can admire the cone-shaped pillars in three places on Renon/Ritten: in the Gastererbach gorge, in the Finsterbach gorge between Longomoso/Lengmoos and Monte di Mezzo/Mittelberg, and in Katzenbachtal below Soprabolzano/Oberbozen. Beautiful hikes lead to these impressive natural towers. From Soprabolzano/Oberbozen, you can either hike along the Earth Pyramid Path into Katzenbachtal or take the Renon Railway to Collalbo/Klobenstein and from there, hike along the pram-friendly path to Longomoso/Lengmoos. No matter which route you choose, the hike is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience. And of course, the dreamy view is included.
