The Terrazza del Brivido in Tremosine: breathtaking view of Lake Garda

The Terrazza del Brivido in Tremosine is an enchanting place that stands like a balcony suspended between sky and lake, offering a breathtaking view of the sparkling waters of Lake Garda.

 This corner of paradise, located on the western side of Lake Garda, is enveloped in a magical and adventurous atmosphere that captures the hearts of those who dare to venture up here.

 The name "Terrazza del Brivido" (Terrace of Thrill) derives from the sensation of vertigo one feels when looking out from the balcony, which juts out into the void. Despite the dizzying effect, the terrace is safe and equipped with adequate protections to ensure visitors' safety. This place is highly appreciated by photography enthusiasts for the picturesque views it offers, especially during sunset hours.

Where the Terrazza del Brivido is Located and How to Get There

The Terrazza del Brivido is located in the village of Tremosine, 350 meters above lake level. To get here, you take the spectacular Strada della Forra, which climbs up the sides of the pre-Alpine peaks from the Statale Gardesana Occidentale.

The Forra is a narrow and winding road carved into the rock, loved by both motorists and motorcyclists for the unique driving experience it offers.

The Terrazza del Brivido is situated within the Hotel Paradiso, located in the hamlet of Pieve di Tremosine sul Garda. Once you arrive in Pieve, simply follow the signs to the hotel.

The Terrazza di Tremosine is open to the public every day from mid-February to mid-November. The best time to visit is definitely at sunset, when the interplay of colors in the sky and lake takes on magical hues.

The Location of the Terrazza del Brivido

The view that unfolds before your eyes is simply breathtaking. The waters of Lake Garda stretch out infinitely, with the surrounding mountains reflected on its calm surface. The interplay of light and shadow creates an ever-changing painting, offering moments of pure contemplation. The sun painting warm hues on the horizon, or the moon's reflection dancing on the waves at night, transforms the Terrazza del Brivido into a dreamlike setting.

The sensation of standing on this natural balcony is wrapped in a thrill of emotion and respect for the majesty of nature. A gentle breeze caresses your face, while the scent of pines and local essences mixes in the air. You feel part of a work of art, immersed in an unreal silence interrupted only by the song of birds and the distant sound of waves crashing on the shore.

The Restaurant of Hotel Paradiso

The construction of the terrace dates back to the 1950s, initiated by the owners of Hotel Paradiso, to which it still belongs today. To visit it, you can access through the hotel's bar with a small mandatory purchase.

You can take advantage of this opportunity to relax with an aperitif while enjoying a unique panorama. The location also serves as an ideal meeting point for anyone wishing to share special occasions with friends or family or simply to spend time in good company.

What to See from the Terrazza del Brivido

From the terrace, in addition to the lake, you can admire several turns of the Forra and the Brasa Canyon, as well as the village of Campione. On days when the sky is particularly clear, the view extends to the other side of the lake, where the imposing figure of Monte Baldo rises.

Here's an interesting fact: What do Tremosine and the Grand Canyon have in common? The height of their terraces! The terrace in Tremosine is situated at the same height as the famous American Skywalk of the Grand Canyon, a structure built in mid-air in 2007, half a century after the terrace of Hotel Paradiso.

Small road Tremosine sul Garda

Tremosine is a "scattered" municipality, meaning it is distributed among 17 small hamlets, all situated on a mountain plateau about 350-400 meters above the lake. This makes it an ideal place for relaxing walks immersed in nature and the history of its small villages.

In the hamlet of Pieve di Tremosine, you can visit the Church of San Giovanni Battista, which dates back to the 7th century and has been rebuilt several times over the centuries.

Tremosine's culinary tradition is tied to its mountain spirit, so you can easily find excellent cured meats and delicious cheeses here, the most famous of which is the “Formagella di Tremosine.”
