Directions


From Vipiteno (Sterzing), drive through Val di Vizze (Pfitschtal) Valley onto the unpaved road up to the Passo di Vizze (Pfitscher Joch). Continue up to the road for 4 km and stop at the fourth bend in the road (1,806 m; large parking lot; the public street ends here). From there, follow signs for the Landshuter Europa Hütte mountain hut. After a short hike up, go left at the fork in the path onto Trail No. 4A, which ascends steeply. Continue hiking through the forest up to the abandoned Malga Griep (Griepalm) alpine pasture and further on to the Alta Via di Landshut (Landshuter Höhenweg) high trail. Follow Trail No. 3, initially crossing slopes and finally, ascending up switchbacks to the Rifugio Europa (Landshuter Europahütte) mountain hut (2,693m; open only in summer; about 3 hours from the starting point). From the hut, continue west following Trail No. 3 over a flat ridge towards the summit and climb the rocky north side of the mountain, which is secured by ropes. Then it's a simple crossing of the southern flank of Punta del Lago Romito (Wildseespitze) Peak to the western slope of the mountain. Turn right here and  the summit is easy to reach (2,733m; 45 minutes from the mountain hut). Descent: Return to the hut, then return using the same trail; 2.5 hours.
