A rewarding hike on the Pfeffersberg mountain to the AVS (South Tyrolean Alpine Club) mountain shelter on the Radlsee lake with an easy climb up the peak.

Author’s recommendation

Detour to the Königsangerspitze peak (2,436 m): follow trail no. 7 from the Radlseehütte over a rocky slope across the summit ridge up to the summit in just 30 mins.

Turn-by-turn directions

This medium-level hike starts in the hamlet of Gereuth at the Perlungerhof parking area (1,380 m), on the Pfeffersberg mountain above Brixen/Bressanone. Trail no. 8 leads past a small chapel, then along the forest path (which also functions as a sled run in winter) for a short distance before rising up a moderately steep incline through a magnificent pine forest. Keep right at the intersection (1,771 m) and start the steep climb to the Hundskopf mountain (2,352 m). At the Hundskopf enjoy the panorama from the convenient bench provided, before resuming the short hike west (approx. 10 min) to the popular Radlseehütte (2,284 m), belonging to the South Tyrolean Alpine Club (AVS) and to the Radlsee (2,255 m) just next to it. To return, follow trail no. 8 from the hut to the lower Rossboden good cable lift station. Keep left and go down through the forest to the Tannefrit-Kreuz cross. At the intersection with the ascending track, turn right before reaching the forest path, and continue on a leisurely walk to the parking area at the Perlungerhof farm.

Für uns Rheinländer mit Ü60 schon Anspruchsvoll, sm Ende waren wir aber Froh die Tour in vorgegebener Richtung gegangen zu sein, so war der Abstieg etwas einfacher . Also wir haben ( Pausen nicht mitgerechnet) gut 5:15 Std. gebraucht.
