Turn-by-turn directions

The sixth stage of the circular hiking trail 360° Obervinschgau is ideal for families, starts in Prad am Stilfserjoch and ends in the medieval town of Glurns.
The tour starts from the village center in a westerly direction to the Sulden bridge, continuing along the Suldenbach path up to the Frauwaal. After about half an hour you reach the forest animal trail "Gumperle", which conveys in a playful way interesting facts about our native forest animals. Continue to the hamlet of Pinet and from there downhill to the ruins of Lichtenberg Castle. Next to the ruin there is a modern wooden construction as a resting place. On the way, the Vinschgau wind makes the windmills whirr and a lounger made of round wooden beams, above Glurns, invites you to linger. The hike then leads to the final destination of Glurns - the smallest town in the Alpine region.
