Turn-by-turn directions

At the parking area of the secondary school in Welsberg 1087 m, find the path of the “Schlossrunde” (Castle Walk) and briefly continue on it. Turn right after the farm and keep following the signs for “Eggerberg/Niederdorf” and “Nr. 45”. The individual farms along the roadside, the steep slopes and narrow paths convey the harsh conditions the farmers had to struggle with over the last centuries in cultivating their land. After approximately one hour you reach the highest and the most beautiful observation point at 1460 m that offers stunning views of the Puster Valley and the eastern Dolomites. Before the path takes you downhill again, turn right and at the small power station right again. Now, leisurely hike down the Eggerberg on the windy path, pass the precious “Mooskirche”, and continue through the industrial zone in easterly direction until you reach the parish church on the “Von-Kurz-Straße”. Now turn right over the bridge and take public transport back to Welsberg – the bus stop is right in front of you.
