Anyone who reaches the Rifugio Serristori for the first time, from where there are sublime views over the three Ortles, will not have been expecting the desolate scenery of the Zay Valley beyond: no more farms or grazing land, but a very rugged landscape of bare rocks


From Santa Gertrude – Sankt Gertraud to Solda – Sulden (1,844 m) we will take route 5 in the Zay Valley to reach the Rifugio Düsseldorfer Hütte-Serristori (2,724 m; 2.30 hours). After turning right at the intersection we will follow the signpost to «Angelus», climbing between boulders up a rocky spur. Moderately difficult hike followed by a very steep ascent of 30-40 metres, facilitated by the use of secured ropes. After a quick steep ascent the rocky trail becomes gentler. It continues without major difficulties (you can walk on snow if you prefer) to a signposted foresummit. Walking around it we will reach the main summit (3,521 m). Return via the same route.

Starting point

Santa Gertrude - St. Gertraut a Solda - Sulden

Target point

Santa Gertrude - St. Gertraut a Solda - Sulden


This trek is best enjoyed by alpine hikers with previous experience of mountaineering and a good level of fitness; overhanging in parts. The Reinstadler trail is not an “iron road” (via ferrata); only one overhanging section is equipped with a steel cable.


Parking is available at Santa Gertrude

Public transportation

Public bus (Line 271) from Malles - Mals and Spondigna - Spondinig to Solda - Sulden.


From Merano or Resia continue towards Spondigna - Spondinig, then turn off to Prato allo Stelvio and continue towards Santa Gertrude a Solda.
