From Magrè to Favogna

The Lago di Favogna lake is located at about 1,000 m asl. in Favogna. An ancient path proceeds from Magrè up to the lake.

In Magrè at the Wine Road (220 m asl.) the path up to Favogna starts. We walk through the village centre (Via Anrather road and Piazza St. Gertraud) and follow the Franz-von-Fenner Straße road towards north. So we leave this beautiful old village and reach the vineyards of Leiten near Niclara/Entiklar. The signpost to Favogna leads us through the forest until the gorge of the Favogna stream.

At the bridge the asphalt road turns into a forest path which proceeds upwards along the steep slope. After about 2.5 hours we reach the plateau of Favogna. We walk past the little church “St. Mary Major” (Maria Schnee) to the hamlet of Favogna di Sotto (Gasthaus zur Kirche tavern). Amidst a meadow the beautiful church dedicated to Saint Leonardo from the 13th century is located, not far away from the Lago di Favogna lake. Both are really worth visiting.

To come back to Magrè we take the same route. At weekends in summer it is also possible, to use the hiking bus. Please take information about the timetables before you start!
