The Salten - hikers' paradise on Europe's largest larch plateau

The Salten is Europe's highest and largest larch high plateau, it is located above Jenesien in the south of the Tschögglberg. The area extends over Hafling, Vöran, Mölten and Jenesien at an average altitude of between 1,100 and 1,500 metres, the highest elevation being the 1,468 m high Tschaufenhöhe.

Hiker's paradise in autumn - The unique larch meadows attract numerous hikers, especially in autumn. Larches are the only conifers whose needles change colour in autumn. The trees then glow in a brilliant yellow and orange. The alpine pastures and mountain meadows on the Salten have been intensively used since the 13th century and on your hikes you will occasionally pass grazing cows and Haflingers.

Hikes for everyone: Whether you are looking for a leisurely hike or a challenging hike on the Salten, here you will find wonderful hiking trails for every level. The high plateau is the perfect destination for hikes with the whole family. You can also leave your hiking boots at home and go for a nice ride on a Haflinger. Whether on foot or from the back of a horse, the magnificent view of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Dolomites, will accompany you the whole way. The hiking trails are well signposted and numerous alpine inns and mountain guesthouses invite you to take a break. Experience tips for hiking holidaymakers:

  • Rafenstein Castle - romantic castle ruins from the 12th century on the ridge of the Talferschlucht gorge.
  • The world of legends on the Salten - 16 legends from Jenesien and the surrounding area can be found on the European long-distance hiking trail E5 on the Salten in the direction of Langfenn.
  • Earth pyramids in Nobls - geological formations of the last Ice Age on red clay soil with beautiful hikes between forest and meadows.
  • Stoanerne Mandln - over 100 stone figures on an ancient cult site with 360° panoramic views above Flaas.

Long-distance hikes - backpacking through the Alps

Two famous long-distance hikes lead across the plateau near Jenesien and offer you extended mountain tours with a magnificent panorama. On a difficult route, which requires a lot of physical fitness, you can follow the popular long-distance hiking trail E5 from Oberstdorf to Merano. In addition, the Yellow Trail of the Via Alpina, which runs from Trieste through Italy and Austria to Oberstdorf, runs through the area. You can hike on the individual stages of the long-distance trails.

Circular hike through shady mountain forests

The Sarntal Alps circular hike invites you to enjoy a leisurely hike in the mountain forest. On the easy route of about 14 kilometres amidst the shady trees there are numerous cosy resting places. That is why the trail is very popular with families and groups. The varied hike takes you along the Martinsweg path to the wooded Altenberg mountain with the old war emplacements (Flak) high above Bolzano. If you start from Glaning or from Gasthof Noafer, you can shorten the loop to a half-day tour.
