Picco della Croce

The Picco della Croce is an imposing double peak in the heart of the Val di Vizze in the Fundres Mountains.

The Picco della Croce is one of the highest peaks in the surroundings of Bressanone and thus a popular hiking destination. Well marked paths start at the Vipiteno al Picco della Croce mountain hut (2,344 m asl) in Borgone in the Val di Vizze, and at the Bressanone mountain hut (2,307 m asl) in the Val di Valles and end on the 3,135 m high top of the mountain.

Along the path from Borgone to the Vipiteno al Picco della Croce mountain hut there’s a protected natural monument, a 10 m wide spring with stalactites and stalagmites. The path which starts at the Bressanone mountain hut is steeper, but shorter and proceeds along a high path, the Alta Via di Fundres. The cross on the summit of the mountain has been established on the south east summit (3,125 m asl).

Once reached the top of the mountain you can look down on Lake Selvaggio, a small but mighty moutain lake, glimmering in the sun. Amazing! A two-day trip with overnight stay in the Bressanone mountain hut is possible by combining the tour to the Picco della Croce with the hike to the Cima di Valmala (3,022 m asl).
