Turn-by-turn directions

From Monguelfo (1087m), find your way between the houses up to the northeastern periphery. Continue to the fork, turn right and follow the markings no. 41. At first, walk on the narrow path across fields and forest to the farms Kammerlechn, Gradler, and Karmann (1406m); then, continue on the “Römerweg” (still on route no. 41) over the wooded ridge in a partly ascending, partly descending walk in eastward direction. After a hike of about tree hours you reach a fork at roughly 1700m altitude. The actual “Römerweg”, however, continues eastwards and ends after an easy descent at the hamlet Radsberg, located to the northwest of Dobbiaco (1591m; from Monguelfo 4 hours; and refresment point). The descent continues from Radsberg, following the markings no. 22 through grassy slopes and a forest belt down to the northwestern periphery of Dobbiaco and into the centre of the village (1241m; from Radsberg 45 minutes). From Dobbiaco you can take the bus or train for the return journey.
