The Sonnenberg mountain is suitable for hiking year round due to its sunny location. It can be reached by walking, hiking taxi, or the Unterstell and Texelbahn Cable Cars. The mountain station of the Unterstell Cable Car is also connected to the popular Merano High Mountain Trail, with distant views of the Ortler massif.
The Sonnenberg mountain is known for its diverse array of wildlife. It is suitable for hiking even in winter, as the climate is mild and the roads free of snow. The pine forests, meadows and mountain streams of the green Nörderberg mountain offer active vacationers the chance to hike in the shade during the summer months.
