Snowshoe tour to the Passo della Croce

From the valley station Falzeben our snow shoe hike leads us to the 1,981 m high Passo della Croce in the Merano 2000 hiking area.

Starting point of our tour to the Passo della Croce is Avelengo – here we park our car on the chargeable parking space next the valley station Falzeben. At the end of the road we take the path no. 51 which proceeds first downhill across a wooden bridge and then steeply uphill.

After about one hour walk we reach the Moschwaldalm mountain hut (1,753 m asl.) and further the Maiser Alm mountain hut. From here we follow the marker no. 15. which brings us to the destination of our snow shoe tour today, the 1,981 m high Passo della Croce. The way back is done along the same route.

Alternative route: by cable car up to the mountain station, further to the Weidmannalm and Meraner Hütte mountain huts and along the European long-distance path E5 to the Passo della Croce. Descent via Moschwaldalm to Falzeben. Walking time about 4.5 hours.
