Hiking in the Val Venosta
Take your car to Kastelbell and drive on through the thickly-forested Nörderberg to the Säge car-park. Start walking along the forestry road, the Forststraße, to the Marzoner Alm, where you might like to stop for a little refreshment! Then continue along path no 18. to Schweinstall and up a rather steep path to the lovely lakes of the Zirmtal with its romantic, quaint little Alpine chalets and mountain huts.
The climb is well-worth the effort at any time of the year and the scenery is especially beautiful in June, when everything is covered in the vivid-pink blossom of wild mountain rhododendrons, reflected in the crystal-clear waters of the lakes, or in autumn with its rich colours as the leaves of the trees turn from green to golden-brown. Enough to take your breath away and leave you speechless! And, whatever you do, don't forget your camera and an extra film or full memory card: Then, at the end of a memorable day, back down along the same paths to where you left your vehicle at the Säge car-park.
