The high-level hike begins at the Schwarzseespitze peak, the mountain station of the Rittnerhorn cable car. The highlight of the tour is a fascinating panorama of the Dolomites, including more than 40 peaks of over 3,000 m which can be seen in good visibility. Arolla and mountain pine trees are features of this tour.

Route: follow trail no. 19 on the panoramic trail (Panoramaweg) to the Runder Tisch viewpoint. Continue to the Unterhorn inn and on trail no. 15 via the Barbianer Almen Alpine pastures to the mountain pine distillery (Latschenölbrennerei). Continue on trail no. 4 past the mystical Pfannenstiel and up to the Rittnerhorn mountain. Take trail no. 2 downhill across the Rittner Almwiesen meadows onto the Heusteig trail. Rustic benches and the lapping of water in wooden troughs invite hikers to take a rest. Trail no. 2A joins trail no. 19 which ends at the cable car station. Walking time: approx. 6 hours. Alternative route via the Rittnerhorn mountain on trail no. 1 to the Unterhorn inn: approx. 4 hours.
