The Maranza Alpine Hut Circuit starts at the Gitschberg cable car mountain station. The cable car from Maranza  runs also in the summermonth. The Gitschberg Alpine Hut Circuit is very clearly signposted so it should be easy to find your way.{MQ}First take trail no. 20 to the Gitschhütte mountain hut (refreshments available), then no. 12 to the Zasslerhütte mountain hut . Follow trail no. 21 to the Ochsenboden, continue to where it joins trail no. 6, then turn left along this via the Kleiner Gitsch to the panoramic viewpoint and finally on to the Moserhütte mountain hut (refreshments available). From the hut, take a new mountain trail down to the Gampen rest area and from there go left again across meadows and through woodland up on a fairly flat trail towards the Gassler Alm Alpine farm and then on to the Bacherhütte mountain hut (refreshments available). From here go a short distance on trail no. 14 and then turn onto trail no. 19A as far as the Kiener Alm Alpine farm (refreshments available). From here climb a short distance up trail no. 20 and then turn left onto the Geißraste circular trail as far as the Pichlerhütte mountain hut (refreshments available). Now continue a short distance towards the Zasslerhütte mountain hut, but turn off to the right before reaching it and continue on the Geißraste circular trail to the mountain station of the Gitschberg cable car.{MQ}As the name suggests, the Alpine Hut Circuit takes in several mountain huts, ranging from rustic and basic to cosy and comfortable. Along the way you get countless wide views out over the Pustertal valley and the nearby mountains of the Pfunderer Tal valley. Stops at the Moserhütte panoramic information board and the Gampen car park with its interesting wood carvings are particularly recommended.
