Hiking to the Villandro Alp

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

The 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 no. 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 no. 2A. On path no. 6 we proceed to the "Ribner Alm", to "Moar in Ums" farm and "Prackfieder Jöchl" (no. 16B, blue-white marks). From this place we start our way back on hiking path no. 16 and 16A, taking us back to Alpe di Villandro.

Follow the signs "Gasserhütte" and walk back to the Sambergerhof, starting point of our hike. Please wear waterproof shoes (wetland)!
