Hiking to the Alpe di Villandro Pasture

Raised moss and sun terrace… Alpe di Villandro is a great place for spending a day under the open sky.

Alpe di Villandro is an extended high alpine pasture above the locality of Villandro. This alpine meadow is characterised by lush green meadows, moors, lakes and grass-covered hills. Numerous refuges are spread all over, offering traditional delicacies and a great place for a rest and having a cool drink.

From Villandro drive up to the Sambergerhof farm and further on to the Gasser refuge. This is where our hike starts on food. Follow path n° 6 to the “Scheibenstock-Martlerle” and follow the stations of the cross to the chapel “Totenkirchl”. From this chapel you can, if you want to, make a quick side-trip to lake “Totensee”, following the path n° 2A.

On path n° 6 we proceed to the “Ribner Alm”, to “Moar in Ums” farm and “Prackfieder Jöchl” (n° 16B, blue-white marks). From this place we start our way back on hiking path n° 16 and 16A, taking us back to Alpe di Villandro. Follow the signs “Gasserhütte” and walk back to Sambergerhof, starting point of our hike.
