On the Tierser Hausberg
Summit snowshoe hike on the Tschafon with a magnificent view of the Rosengarten.

Ascent: From Gasthof Schönblick in St. Kathrein above Völser Aicha, follow trail no. 7, then trail no. 7A (often not indicated on maps) through the beautiful spruce forest in the direction of the Tschafonhütte.. At the crossroads, follow trail no. 4 to the hut. From there, turn right (trail no. 9), initially flat, then steeply up to the summit, whose highest point at 1834 metres is known as the Völseggspitze and – in good weather – offers a unique view from the Rosengarten to the Eisacktal. Descent: The descent to the Tschafonhütte follows the ascent path. At the hut, however, you then take trail 4, partly through mountain pine forest, first in the direction of Wuhnleger, an alpine meadow that impresses with a beautiful pond in summer. From there, turn right in the direction of Völsegg (partly signposted as 4 A). At the Völsegger wayside shrine, follow marker 6 back to the Schönblick inn.
