Hike with an overview.
Starting from the Schwarzseespitze, the South Tyrolean Himmelstour - Cieloronda leads in a long and panoramic circular hike across the alpine pastures around the Rittner Horn.

From the starting point at the cable car station, the route initially leads along the wide forest path down to the Unterhornhaus and the Feltuner Hütte (refreshment stop). Here, trail no. 2A branches off in a westerly direction, crossing the alpine meadows on a fairly level hike, until after about 20 minutes you descend through the forest into the cutting of the Lahnerbach stream. Once you have crossed the stream on a small wooden bridge, you reach the junction with trail no. 2 after a few minutes. Follow this trail uphill to the right across the alpine meadows to the mountain hut (not managed), where you reach a forest road. Follow this path, always marked with 2, on an easy hike for about an hour up to the Rittner Horn with the refuge of the same name. On the east side of the refuge, trail no. 4 descends steeply and windingly at first through a scree field to the north to the Platzer Alm (refreshment stop - please note that the trail has been changed and now runs slightly further
