Tri-point border stone

From the tri-point border stone to the mountain lakes

Guided hiking tours to the border.
Special features: Vallo Alpino - border wall, history of South Tyrol, legends surrounding the mountain lakes

From the Rescher Alm we walk in the midst of mountain pines on the forest border of the tri-point stone. The border stones and military buildings bear witness to the "Vallo Alpino del Littorio" from the Alpine Wall in South Tyrol. The descent through lush meadows, the upland moor with diverse colours, the mountain barns with fragrant hay show the variety of the Alpine region. Calm and quiet, the Lake Grünsee unfolds across the midst of the forest. The many legends lead us into a fantasy world. After a short descent, we reach the Lake Schwarzsee. In July, the water lilies blossom and, in autumn, the leaves light up in all colours. We return to the starting point.

Piz Lad Sunrise

Mountains and light

Guided hiking tour at sunrise.
Special features: The first light of the day, the high sun position at noon, or the deep rays of the evening sun conjure up a thrilling play of colours and guarantee unforgettable moments.

From the Rescher Alm (Alpine hut) we rise at dawn and past the Sesslad cross. The serpentine of the military road leads to the summit slope. The constellations will spark our imagination before the biggest star, the sun, appears on the horizon. We allow the light to pervade and look forward to the new day. The summit crest on Piz Lad gives a clear view across the Engadin, the Inn Valley and the Venosta Valley. The mountain scenery shines in a friendly light and slowly lights up the dark valleys. We dwell in silence and calm, chamois, marmots and/or ibex can also be seen.

We will find out about the development of the Rojen hamlet, the sundial and the fascinating Church of St. Nicholas. After climbing to the Outer Nockenkopf, the magnificent mountain scenery is soon revealed around the Weisskugel, overlooking the Engadin and to the border mountains of the uplands. The reservoir, military roads, defence systems and the Alpine economy are just some of the interesting topics that we discuss.

Graunerberg mountain

Hike through the Graun's mountain

Guided hike on the landmark of Curon Venosta/Graun
Special features: Lake plateau, decline of the village of Curon Venosta/Graun, Alpine history


At the foot of Klapoarspitz mountain, we rise above the forest road to the Graunerberg mountain. The unique view of the beautiful lake scenery, with “King Ortler” in the background, makes us dream of the former landscape of the three lakes. "Das versunkene Dorf Graun", a poem by T. Hölzl, truly expresses the mood. The Lake Pedross (2,602 m) invites you to linger and take in a touch of Kneipp therapy. We descend from the Rossbodenalm on the military road into the valley.

View from "Joggl"

Edelweiss tour

Guided hiking tours to our landmark

Special features: Geology, Alpine economy, flora and fauna

From the Grauner Alm (Alp), we ascend to Gamsjoch, further on to the Schartl, a passage to Pedross. The limestone soil can give way to Edelweiss. The unique rock formations encourage you to enter into discussion about the geological development. The view to the lake plateau and the mighty Ortler group, the Ötztal Alps and the Sesvenna group in the background capture our attention.
The high-mountain hike to the Angerlikopf, the Seeberkopf and the descent of the Ochsenbergscharte in the Vivana valley brings the true experience alive.
