Malcesine, on the east side of the Lake Garda, clustered around the towering Scaliger Castle and the historical Palazzo dei Capitani, keeps intact its ancient medieval origins.
The ever temperate and healthy climate, especially during autumn months, permits beautiful walks in the hills and in the mountains, among the olive groves and the luxuriant Mediterranean vegetation.
Sailing, waterskiing windsurf, underwater sports, tennis, minigolf, paragliding and mountain bike are very common.
With the new cableway inaugurated in July 2002, in fact, it is now possible to reach the summit of Mount Baldo (1800 m ), where excursionists and nature lovers can hike along the many mountain paths, while mountain bikers liberate the power of their muscles in steep climbs, only to launch themselves down breathtaking descents.
In the winter time the cableway let’s you reach the vast variety of ski grounds of Monte Baldo where a chair lift and six ski-lifts serve over eleven kilometres of ski trails of varying difficulty.
