For an active holiday visit the Rittnerhorn hiking area and ski resort with pull lifts and a cable car. This destination is worth a visit during all times of the year. A 35 km long and probably highest alpine cross-country track in Central Europe awaits you. The area is characterised by sun, quietness and a unique natural landscape with a total of 40 km of cross-country tracks for skating and classic cross-country skiing.

Ritten offers an Ice Rink with 400 m. Due to the altitude this ice-rink is often chosen by international ice-skating athletes. In the nearby ice stadium you can ice-skate while enjoying the music in the background.

The Pyramids in Ritten are the highest and most beautifully shaped pyramids in Europe. They reach heights of up to 30 metres.

The so-called "Rittner Bahdnl" railway operates between Klobenstein and Oberbozen and is a comfortable means of transport and an attraction at the same time.
