Hiking on the alpine pastures in South Tyrol
Alpine pastures are amongst the most beautiful hiking destinations in alpine landscapes. Since the Neolithic Age, these green stripes enclosing the mountains like a belt, have been used by mountain farmers as grazing land for cattle, horses, sheep and goats. The alpine pastures are ideal for hiking, also for non-professionals, since there are no challenging ascents or difficult passages.
