Distance 18.4 km
This cross-border tour is too steeped in history to be missed. Past the famous tank barriers, you will find what is probably the most famous photo spot on Lake Resia. Alternative downhill options let everyone get their money's worth.
From the car park in Reschen, take the valley cycle path over the Reschen Pass towards Nauders. At the crossroads shortly before Nauders, follow the signs to Bergkastel. The forest road then leads uphill to the Stierbergalm. If you want to save yourself the metres of hike, you can take the Bergkastel cable car in Nauders and from the mountain station take the trail to the Stierbergalm. As this is part of the 3-Land Enduro, the cable car also runs in summer.
After the alpine pasture, follow the Plamort trail back across the Italian border directly to the well-known Panzer barriers. Follow the meadow path on the left to the photo rock high above the Reschensee lake. Often you even have to queue here to be alone in the photo. Now you can decide whether to take the old military trail or the more demanding Bunkertrail and then the Etschtrail. In both cases, you return to Lake Resia near the source of the Adige.
