Turn-by-turn directions

From the Pfatten/Vadena Town Hall, the hiking trail leads left through slopes and deciduous forests up to the ridge of the Mitterberg mountain (560 m), which can be reached after about 40 minutes. You walk on along the forest path, which crosses the forest in a few loops and flows into an asphalted road leading to the lakes. At the end of the large Monticolo lake, a forest path branches off to the right, which leads to the crest of the forest in a few minutes. From there, the hiking trail takes about 20 minutes to reach the Maier farms in Pfatten/Vadena. On the way very nice viewpoints. From the farms it takes 15 minutes to get back to the starting point.

Getting there

Coming from the south: Take the highway exit "Neumarkt/Auer-Egna/Ora" and follow the signs "Bozen/Leifers-Bolzano/Laives" for approx. 15 km. Then follow the signs for "Branzoll/Bronzolo" and "Pfatten/Vadena". 

Coming from the north: Take the highway exit "Bozen Süd-Bolzano Sud" and then follow the signs for "Trient/Leifers-Trento/Laives" for approx. 15 km. After the tunnel connecting Bolzano and Laives, follow the signs for ""Branzoll/Bronzolo" and then for "Pfatten/Vadena".
