Idyllic rivers, towering mountains and velvety-soft meadows: South Tyrol has the lot, and in the Tschamin Valley you can find it all in one tour. The Tschaminbach river babbles happily alongside you, the Rosengarten mountain provides a monumental backdrop and an oasis of meadows beckon you to relax and have fun in the thick spruce forests. What more could you want?

The hike begins at the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Reserve Visitor Centre at the entrance to the Tschamin Valley and leads past the “Schwarzer Lettn” and “Hoher Steg” springs. After you pass by the Schaferleger clearing you will come to the Rechter Leger clearing, a particularly beautiful vantage point and a wonderful spot to stop off and relax. If you turn left just before the clearing, you will come to a waterfall.
To return, make your way back to the turnoff for Weißlahnbad. At the turnoff, walk straight on towards St. Zyprian. Cross the vast alpine meadows facing the Tiers Valley, and follow path no. 12 back to Weißlahnbad and the Nature Reserve Visitor Centre.
