Here you can find already existing hiking routes:

See, for instance, the following medium difficulty routes: Geisler alm, Rittner horn, Tschafonhuette, Around Meran 2000.

More experienced hikers might want to consider hiking to Schlern (you can also take the cable car to Kompatsch and start from there), Latemar, or Tre Cime. There exists also an “easy” option for Tre Cime: you can arrive by public transport directly to the Rifugio Auronzo (takes 3 hours from Bolzano), make a round tour, and come back the same day, or spend the night in one of the many rifugios (better book in advance by phone).
