From alpine pasture to alpine pasture in the romantic Altfasstal.

From the car park (approx. 1530 m) we follow the forest road, which is closed to road traffic, in the direction of the Großberghütte (1644 m), which we reach in less than an hour. The trail is flat until it starts to climb slightly and leads us through a picturesque mixed forest into the Altfasstal valley. At the hut we have a clear view for the first time and can almost see the whole hike. To the right rises the Gitsch (2510 m), which gives its name to the nearby ski area. From now on, alpine pasture follows alpine pasture; most of the alpine pastures are not managed. After about 1:30 hours we reach the end of our hike, where we have to decide which hut should be our destination: the Wieser hut (1850 m) or the Pranter hut, often also called Pranter-Stadel hut (1833 m). The Rückweg is via the outward route. At the entrance to the Altfass valley (2 km from Meransen) there is a new alpine Kneipp facility. The 300-metre long wading facility at the Großberghütte is available to Kneipp
