The Ochsentodweg starts in Cermes near the Hoferhof café and is an improved and, in parts, newly laid track to the Vigiljoch Cable Car mountain station. 

Hike from Lana: the hike starts in Lana close to the valley station of the Vigiljoch Cable Car. The first part of the hike is identical to the Aichberg culture and nature trail. Entering Raffeinweg, we follow the narrow asphalt road through orchards and vineyards uphill, but then pass by the entrance to the Waalweg irrigation channel path and follow the signs to the Haidenhof and Hoferhof farms.

Hike from Cermes: equally, it is also possible to start in Cermes at the village hall/village square. To do this head in the direction of Merano and then after 160 meters turn onto Baslingerstrasse and then follow the signs for trail 33A (Lebenbergeralm mountain pasture, no refreshments available), which leads us through orchards and vineyards, crossing Lebenbergstrasse several times, to the Waalweg. We then follow this for 600 m in a southerly direction, pass the Eggbauer and Leitenschenke cafés and continue to the Haidenhof...

..... We then leave the wide road and go tightly uphill on track no. 33A through chestnut trees and shrubland to the Hoferhof café (refreshments available here). Shortly afterwards we leave trail no. 33A and take the track signposted as Ochsentod up to the Vigiljoch.
