This intermediate loop trail takes you up to an easily accessible peak that is also a very popular destination for snowshoe hikers in winter.


The hike begins in Falzeben near Avelengo (Hafling). First, Trail No. 14, which is not challenging, takes you through the forest past the Zueg and Rotwandhütte mountain huts, up to the Kirchsteigeralm alpine pasture and on to Kesselberg Peak. At the saddle below Kesselberghütte mountain hut, take Trail No. 13 on the right, which crosses the edge of the mountain to Mittagerjoch Pass. From here, the trail on the left takes you up to the summit of Mount Mittager. For the descent, take the Trail No. 13 to Mittagerhütte mountain hut, which is clearly visible. The well-marked path leads back down to Kirchsteigeralm and continues to Falzeben, where the loop trail closes.


Meran 2000 cable car takes you up to Piffing, a little higher than Falzeben. From here, follow the upper trail to the Kirchsteigeralm alpine pasture; the rest of the hike is identical.

    La traccia GPS non corrisponde alla descrizione, infatti indica partenza e arrivo a Falzeben. Bellissimo giro comunque !
