Around Mittager Mountain at Merano (Meran) 2000.


Ascent: From Naif, on the eastern edge of Merano (Meran)/Maia Alta (Obermais) along Haflinger Straße Road (approx. 560 m), take the Ifinger cable car up to the Piffinger Köpfl (2,010 m; you can also get here from Avalengo (Hafling)/Falzeben via cabin lift). Head northeast along Trail No. 17/14 in a mostly flat crossing of forested and meadow-covered slopes, about 45 minutes, into the Kirchsteiger Almkessel (about 1,950 m, where you’ll find the Kirchsteiger Alm and Meraner Hütte mountain taverns). From there, take the chairlift up to Kleinen Mittager Peak (approximately 2,300 m) or follow Trail No. 13 on foot, up to the Mittagerhütte mountain hut, which takes about 45 minutes (2,260 m; serves food), which is close to the lift station. High Trail: From Kleinen Mittager Peak, follow Trail No. 13 north, almost flat, over to a fork on the eastern ridge of Windspitze Peak; turn left there, and follow Trail No. 13, also nearly flat, across the mountain slope northeast, across to the Kesselbergscharte wind gap (2,280 m; not far away, the Kesselberghütte mountain hut serves food). From there, follow signage for the Panoramaweg Trail, marked No. 14, on the east side, through pastureland and down to the little Kesselbergsee Lake (approx. 2,010 m). From there, follow Trail No. 14, mostly flat, crossing the long, open eastern and southern slopes of Großen Mittager Mountain to Fischbach, then the southwest slope of Kleinen Mittager Mountain, crossing to a pass (2,080 m) and then following Trail No. 13 for about 10 minutes down to the Meraner Hütte mountain hut. Total hiking time: 2.5 hours. Descent: from Meraner Hütte, follow Trail No. 14 on the access road back out to Piffinger Köpfl and then take the cable car back to the starting point; 45 minutes.
