The Sonnenberg mountain has some pleasant and wide meadows and numerous farm houses. It is therefore probably the most beautiful site in the landscape around Prags.


From the location Schmieden (1222 m, turn south on the main road of the valley Pustertal between the locations Welsberg and Niederdorf) you follow the path n. 2 first along the path Höfestraße for a bit and after that you walk uphill on the pleasant meadows. This way you will reach the farm houses Marerhöfe and via the access roads you will come by the farms Huber, Gruber, and Liegerer – after the last one you follow the path n. 2. Uphill you then walk through the forest and to the east. Via wide hairpin curves you will eventually come back to your starting point.
