We rented a car in Venice and drove up to Castelrotto to Garni Silbernagl. This was the view from our balcony.
We arrived near dinner time, so we didn't have time to explore. However, we enjoyed a nice meal at Saalhofstuben.
We drove about 30 minutes to Alpe di Siusi (Seiser Alm in German) which is the largest high altitude meadow in Europe.
While we were unable to do everything we wanted due to it being the off season and things were closed, it was worth it to have this meadow to ourselves.
We loved looking at Schlern (I feel like it should be Mt. Schlern, but Wikipedia says no) so much we stopped into Hotel Gstatsch for a couple glasses of wine at this very window. I believe Rachel has a video of me professing my love for that mountain.
I had to talk Rachel into taking the cable car up. The car getting enveloped by a cloud didn't help her state of mind.
