Both local residents and visitors agree when asked what it’s like in Kaltern am See – also known as Caldaro al Lago, which makes it a place with more than one name and many different faces. Coming from the north, there really is so much southern flair that hits you right after crossing the Brenner Pass. Still a few spruces, larches and pines but yet also palms. And they’re deep in the soil, not in pots. Cypresses, figs and olive trees. And then the vineyards, which is the last bit of evidence needed to prove: → You’re in the south.
