The popular Stoanernen Mandln stone figures are located on Großen Reisch, at a good 2,000 metres in altitude, and are defintiely worth a visit. This is the largest collection of stone figures, also known as cairns.


Coming from Sarentino (Sarnthein) at 961 m from the west, go up to the Gasthaus Sarner ski lodge (1,618 m; can be done in about 2 hours on foot; near the Auener Hof Hotel). From there, take the wide Trail No. 2 through the forest up to Auener Alm (1796 m; tavern) and continue on Trail No. 2 through alpine pasturelands, with a slight grade, up to Auener Joch (1,924 m). Follow signs for Stoanerne Mandln, and continue south along the signposted trail, across a broad ridge of pastureland. You’ll reach the highest point of Großen Reisch in just a half hour, where you’ll find a weather cross and the Stoanernen Mandln cairns (2,003 m); 1.5 hours from the Gasthaus Sarner ski lodge. The descent is the same as the route of ascent.

    Una bella escursione, facile e breve si può fare in mattinata e fermarsi poi perfettamente all'ora di pranzo presso lo Skihütte. Offre un panorama molto suggestivo con il valore aggiunto delle centinaia di ometti di pietra che creano una magica atmosfera!
