Short Hike to the Waidmannalm Mountain Hut

This short hike leads to the Waidmannalm Mountain Hut. It is very easy walk and suitable for families with children.

This relaxing recreational hike to the Waidmannalm Mountain Hut begins on Pfiffinger Köpfl, which is accessible from Avelengo/Falzeben either with the Falzeben Cable Car or via the Cable Car Merano 2000. This easy winter hike through the plateau’s vast forests follows trail no. 18 all the way to Waidmannalm Mountain Hut without any appreciably steep grades.
A sportier route to Waidmannalm skips the cable car and leads from the parking lot at Falzeben past the Zuegg Hütte and Rotwandhütte Mountain Huts to Pfiffinger Köpfl. From there, the trail leads directly and easily to Waidmannalm Mountain Hut.
