Turn-by-turn directions

The tour to Königswiese/Prato del Rè starts at the parking place in Gfrill/Cauria at the right side of the hamlet, entering the hiking path number 4. This path passes several meadows and grasslands, past the "Wiesenhof", the "Aalbach" and the "Drei Fichtenhof", localized near the Königswiese/Prato del Rè. At this point, the hiking path number 4a goes through fabulous beech groves and pictorial forests. With a bit of luck, woodpeckers and chamois can be seen and heard. Right before the Königswiese/Prato del Rè, the walk turns into the hiking path number 6 to reach the Königswiese/Prato del Rè on 1.622m above sea level, where since 2013 a summit cross is arranged. The hiking path number 6 leads back to "Dre Fichtenhof" and through the wood you can slightly recognize some parts of Gfrill/Cauria. Arriving at "Wiesenhof" there is the possibility to visit the pictorial chapel "Virgin Mary" infestation in the meadows" (German "Maria Heimsuchung in der Wiese"), which was built by the aristocratic family von Feigenputz in 1680.
