This genuine 3000 m peak of the Texel group dominates the Naturnser Sonnenberg. The view south is most impressive - Naturns and Lower Vinschgau -, to the east the rocky Zielspitze, and to the north the other Texel group peaks (Gfallwand, Lodner, Tschigot, Hohe Weisse). The Hohe Wilde is also within view.

Directions

Your walk starts at Dickhof (Val Senales) which towers like a turret over Vinschgau and Val Senales. Follow track No. 10 (signposted "Dicker Alm") through shady woodland first to Dicker Alm (2060 m) then on to Moaralm. Here track No. 10A branches off to the right leading through the quaint high valley. The path continues over alpine meadows to the mountain's rubble field and gets more steep towards the end. On arrival at the ridge, it is only a few meters to the. For the descent, follow the same route. summit cross

Variante

Kirchbachspitz can also be climbed from Schnatzhof at Naturnser Sonnenberg (track No. 6) or from Unterstell (mountain station of Sonnenberg funicular railway, also via track No. 10 and 10A). However, this route is quite steep by comparison, and the variation in altitude is higher (1500/1750 m). This variation is therefore only recommended for resilient walkers.
