Start is at Nova Levante/Welschnofen cable car parking lot- ascent with the Laurin I cable car to the Frommer Alm hut. From here, you hike along path [1A], an easy hiking path to the Ochsenhütte hut, from where you have a wonderful view of the Catinaccio/Rosengarten on the sun terrace, while homemade specialities invite you to enjoy them. Continue on path [1A] across colorful mountain meadows to the junction with path [9], which leads to the highlight panorama point, “The Kaiserstein”.

Questions and answers

Question from Bernhard Seitz · September 11, 2021 · Community
17 km in 1:45 h bedeutet 9,71 km/h. Für eine leichte Wanderung etwas anspruchsvoll. Ich nehme an, da ist die Seilbahn mit eingerechnet. Wie weit ist denn der reine Fußweg und wie lange braucht man dafür?
