Turn-by-turn directions

From the parking lot (948 m), pass the parish church and the Multscher Town Museum, following the Vater Unser Besinnungsweg itinerary (also know as Vipiteno circuit trail). The trail runs westwards through the town to the highway flyover, before reaching the village of Tunes (1,070m). Pass the Jakobskirche church of San Giacomo and turn right, where the trail climbs north through the fields with breath-taking views of the Vipiteno basin. At the forest, the trail approaches a sled run (1,165m) and trail no. 23 with a signpost. Descend while bearing to the right, before reaching the Monte Cavallo cable car valley station. The return leads through the pedestrian walkway in the old town center past the Heiliggeist-town hall and the little Kreuzkirchlein church. Walk across the new town back to the point of departure.
