The Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park: Everything is together
The Schlern in the West and the Rosengarten in the southeast are the natural border posts, which also gave their name to the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park. Covering an area of approximately 8,900 hectares, this magnificent area occupies a large part of the Western South Tyrolean Dolomites. The Schlern applies with its highest elevation Petz (2,563 m) and the two majestic towers Santner and Euringer rightly regarded as one of the landmarks of South Tyrol.
