Winter walk on the Flaner Jöchl

The popular winter round tour at the edge of the Monte Cavallo skiing area is ideal for a pleasant walk in the upper Valle Isarco valley.

The Monte Cavallo funicular takes us to the mountain station where, at the northern side of the ski slopes, we start our tour to the “Flaner Jöchl”. First we go downhill across the forest, passing by the Furl tavern, then we continue to the radio transmission tower. Today the landscape is particularly fascinating. Now we proceed the way up on a wide and groomed path, after a curve the view to the Tribulaun di Fleres opens up.

We continue across the winter landscape to the cross at the Flaner Jöchl, the highest point of this round tour. This is where in summer, there is the so-called Kastellacke, a little pond. From this place, it is only a stone’s throw to the Sterzingerhaus mountain tavern, a short walk away from the mountain station of the Monte Cavallo. To top off our day, we visit the Christmas Market in the city of Vipiteno.
