Spectacular ice caves, sparkling snow-covered pastures and imposing rocky massifs line the mountainous landscape to the Resia Pass along the Venosta Alps and the Sesvenna Range. This lake region is a great point of departure to explore the ice and rock world of the surrounding Alps.

The 3,739 meter high Weißkugel mountain situated on the border between South Tyrol and Austria is the second tallest mountain in the Venosta Alps. Due to its central location in the mountain range, the Weißkugel offers a spectacular 360-degree view of the surrounding glaciers from its summit in the Venosta Valley.

The Weißkugel Alpine hut opens from early July until the end of September, offering accommodation for up to 48 hikers and may also be opened in the spring for Alpine skiers.
