The Monte di Mezzo is a hiking area that is probably often underestimated. It comprises the Valle della Primavera, which above all catches your sight with the first heralds of spring very early in the year. This is also where hiking trails stretch to Castelchiaro, surmounting Lake Caldaro. Also at the Monte di Mezzo, there are the remnants of the Laimburg and the Denti di Cavallo. On the way up, see the hot air springs, one of many hiking destinations at the Monte di Mezzo. Moreover you can surround the mountain ridge by bicycle.
The soil of the Monte di Mezzo consists of reddish porphyry and earth, providing the basis for the beautiful mixed forest and the sub-Mediterranean flora flourishing at the hill. Its highest point is probably the Wilder Mann Buehel, another first-choice hiking destination at the Monte di Mezzo. If you don’t recognize this mountain, simply look for Castelchiaro high above Lake Caldaro.
