Putzenhöhe (2441m) From easy to advanced Located on one of the many sun-spoilt hillsides of the Pustertal valley, the Moarhof mountain inn is an easy hour's walk from the Gelenke parking (1600 m). Fortified by a hearty meal at the restaurant, carry on to lake Grünbach and to the Putzenhöhe peak if the weather is good and you feel in shape. The hike through these stunning winter landscapes is truly rewarding. From the peak, the views down into the Mühlwald valley and out into the glaciers of the central Alps will certainly take your breath away.
