We are in the uppermost valleys of Alto Adige, where the sky is blue and the sun seems closer. It is really worth setting your alarm at 5 a.m. to climb to the top of the mountain and enjoy the sunrise among the silence of the peaks. Every Tuesday morning the Speikboden cable car opens at 6 a.m. and takes visitors to a height of 2,400 metres above sea level. Once there, you can sit back and enjoy the show. If you do not mind the climb, you can leave the cable car and go up on foot. In September and October, the Speikboden ski area organizes guided walks at sunrise. They are not particularly strenuous: you begin when it is still dark, and walk for about 20 minutes. Once at the summit you can enjoy a cup of tea and a brioche around the campfire and watch the sunrise in silence.
