Hiking tip: the PFUNDERER HÖFEWEG

Exercise, tradition, and culinary delights – that’s the adventure trio you’ll get to experience when choosing the PFUNDERER HÖFEWEG. A secret tip amongst the various hiking routs of the region, the PFUNDERER HÖFEWEG will take you on a cultural and culinary excursion through the picturesque South Tyrolean region of Gitschberg Jochal, away from the tourist crowds and overflowing mountain huts. No wonder this secret tip is such a hit with mountain- and nature-lovers, with hiking- and culture-fans. Look forward to historical traditions in a quiet valley, away from the mainstream tourist destinations! Local tour guides and farmers provide insight into the daily life and the challenges faced on the farms, situated on steep hills, in the old days. Kids marvel at the old tools, while adults soak up the culture and get to enjoy culinary delights, hand- and homemade on the farms. One special feature not to be missed are the so-called “Eislöcher” (ice holes), which serve as natural cooling systems of the Pfundertal valley. There’s a lot to discover – the old and the new. It will be an exciting holiday – for young and old. The hike covers 8 km and 250 m of altitude. Including a relaxed visit to one of the local mountain huts, it takes about 2.5 hours to complete the trail. An amazing, guided hike, free of charge with your Almencard Plus!
