The places Deutschnofen and Welschnofen are the main locations in the holiday region Rosengarten Latemar. Located in the back area of the Eggental, about 20 km from Bozen, this region is accessible on the state road SS 241, better known as the Dolomite Road.
The wide area around the Karer Lake, which extends with its alpine meadows and alpine forests to the mountain massif of Rosengarten, Latemar and Karerpass, is the centerpiece of the bike region . The unique scenic location in the heart of the Dolomites and the perfect conditions make the area extremely attractive in summer or winter. The ski lifts are also used by bikers in summer to overcome a portion of the altitude and reach up to the majestic peaks of the Dolomites.
In the evening the walls of the rose garden are enlightened with a glaring red light. According to the legend, this is a remnant of the magnificent gardens of King Laurin, of which Dietrich defeated the beautiful garden with a curse and made it invisible during the day and at night. He only forgot the evening hours, just before sunset. That is why we can still admire the spectacle of nature at sunset today.
