Hiking on Mount Plose
Your vacation in Bressanone in the summer time -
Get it all!
300 sunny days per year, an alpine hiking paradise right outside your front door, a beautiful city full of culture and fine cuisine, and a cornucopia of recreational opportunities. These are the ingredients for a brilliant summer holiday in Bressanone! On our farm “Huber zu Dorf” you can spend every day of your vacation in a different way. Take the cable car high up to Mount Plose where an amazing mountain scenery will welcome you. Great hiking trails lead to rustic mountain lodges. The kids’ hiking path “Rudi Walk” is a great discovery adventure for young and old. The longest toboggan run in the Dolomites – the “Rudi Run” – in the summer turns into a race track! With off-road buggies you can speed the 10 km down to the valley.
2486 m, on the local mountain of Bressanone with panoramic views
The Dolomites Panorama Trail leads through the southern flank of Mount Plose to the alpine lodge Schatzer Hütte (1984 m), and when the visibility is good, it offers marvellous views: the sky-striving Dolomite towers of the Odle Group (Geisler) on the other side of the Funes Valley appear close enough to touch. From the summit of Mount Hoher Gabler (2576 m), there is a panoramic view of the southern Dolomite mountains. In the north, the Zillertal Glacier Mountains rise up to 3500 meters on the horizon. Take a break at the alpine lodge Schatzer Hütte and then walk back to the cable car station Plose.
Dolomites High-Altitude Trail
The Dolomite View High-Altitude Trail offers landscapes that count among the most beautiful in the entire Dolomite region. The first part of this alpine trail is recommended as a short and easy mountain walk, especially for families with children.
From the village of S. Andrea above Bressanone take the cable car up to Kreuztal/Val Croce (2050 m) – also accessible by car. From the cable car station, Marker 17 leads southeast to the chapel and east to Plose Strasse. Here, branching off to the right, the high-altitude hike continues on a plane path over alpine pastures eastwards. At the junction, follow the trail marked 17A, which climbs up to the left and takes you past the old lodge Rossalm to the new lodge Rossalm, situated just above (2200 m), where you may take a break. The path then continues east and northeast, crosses a ski lift and then connects to the waterfall in the Schnatzgraben with Trail 4. This crosses south on the steep western slope of Mount Gabler: There, sloping ditches and rocky patches are secured with wire ropes. Continue following the Marker 4, slightly downhill across meadows to the crossing Almweg with the Marking 8 (a little further east the alpine lodge Enzianhütte offers food and drink (1967 m). Continue west to the lodge Schatzerhütte (1984 m), an alpine tavern. From there, Marker 8 continues westwards along the Trail Almwirtschaftsweg to the lodge Skihütte (1900 m), from where you climb back on Trail 6 to the high-altitude trail and back to Kreuztal/Val Croce.
