The Helm/ Monte Elmonot only inspires with its view, because the natural border between Italy and Austria looks back on a long history. On the tracks of smugglers and border crossers, various hikes with a low level of difficulty can be planned. Always with you: the view of the Sesto sundial, the largest stone sundial in the world.

Turn-by-turn directions

Description of the way: From Moos/Moso we have to  go up on the right and we follow the path number 13 passing the farms of Palmstatt towards the Helmhang hut/Rif. Pendio Monte Elmo. We stay on the right side and go further to the Negerdorf/Sette Baracche. It is very nice.  After the last hut you go to the left into the larch forest and you follow the path number 3 A on the crest. The way back is via the outward route or alternatively to the top station of the Helmbahn, which takes you back down to the valley.

TIP: The cable car Helmjet helps you to conquer some vertical metres.
