This hike gives you the option of covering a route with the chair lift. Depending on whether you prefer to run up or down, this approx. 1 hour hike always has a pleasant incline and is therefore suitable for the whole family. The motto: switch off and enjoy nature.

Author’s recommendation

Stop at the Berghaus Foppa and try the fine capuns.
