Dosso di Costalta (Trento)

Excursion to the Dosso di Costalta (1955m asl): marvellous vantage point in the Dolomites, though today it was rather cloudy and we had a rather icy breeze. In the picture below a glimpse towards the Brenta mountains (3150m asl).

GrandHotel Karersee (Bolzano)

Grand Hotel since 1896, 1600 m a.s.l., a golf course since 1910, this building is still very fascinating, due also to the truly impressive landscape: the Rosengarten with peaks reaching 3000 m on the one side (see picture above and the last two) and the Latemar on the other (see the next two pictures).
