Turn-by-turn directions

From the Bagni di Lavina Bianca car park, follow the forest path uphill through woods and meadows towards the Wuhnleger, a small lake which reflects the peaks of the mount Catinaccio and the Vajolet towers, and where you can also see the toads, salamanders and dragonflies who live there. According to witnesses from the times, the Wuhnleger lake formed after the area was bombed in 1943 during World War 2.

From there, trail no. 4 leads you to the S. Sebastian Chapel, erected in remembrance of the Plague. The area known locally as the “Weihboden” is also an impressive place, and is thought to have been a cult site in pagan times. When you come to the fork in the road, take trail no. 6 towards the Pattissenhof farm to get back to Bagni di Lavina Bianca.
