Picco della Croce
Experiencing the Monti di Fundres and one of its major peaks.
The Picco della Croce is an imposing double peak in the heart of the Val di Vizze in the mountains of Fundres, which offers a fascinating view on the Zillertal Alps. The Picco della Croce (3,135 m) is one of the highest peaks in the surroundings of Bressanone and thus a popular hiking destination for inhabitants of the area.
Well marked paths start at the Rifugio Vipiteno (2,344 m) and the Rifugio Bressanone (2,307 m) and end on the top of the mountain. The path which starts at the rifugio Bressanone is steeper, but shorter and proceeds along the Alta Via di Fundres. The cross on the summit of the mountain has been established on the south east summit (3,125 m).
Once reached the top of the mountain you can look down on the Lago Selvaggio, a small but mighty moutain lake, glimmering in the sun. Amazing!
> Our tip: A two-day trip with overnight stay in the Rifugio Bressanone, combining a tour to the Picco della Croce and the Cima di Valmala (3,022 m).
