Choose between... one single ride on the Lazaun cable car or the Roter Kofel chairlift or the Unterstell cable car.

With the Lazaun cable car you can reach the Lazaun mountain station comfortably and safely in about 4 minutes. Arrived at 2,430 m altitude, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view of the Grawand summit (3,251 m) and the village of Maso Corto. Up here you will find a very special alpine flora and fauna, as the Lazaun plateau is characterized by the power of the glaciers and an upland moor. Use the ride with the Lazaun cable car for an easy hike or a stop at the Lazaun mountain hut.
If you are looking for more entertainment, you can rent e-mountain bikes or mountaincarts at Maso Corto, which will ensure an action-packed descent.

The Roter Kofel chairlift takes you in about 6 minutes directly to the Teufelsegg valley station at 2,543 metres altitude, the starting point of many beautiful hikes. The chairlift takes you past a small waterfall and offers glimpses of the Larix via ferrata and the parallel "Alpin Trail" hiking trail. Use the ride to start a high-alpine tour, take a leisurely round hike or return comfortably to the valley after a strenuous climb on the via ferrata. The Teufelsegg hut is also open this summer.

The Alta Via di Merano is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the entire Alpine region, along the Gruppo di Tessa Nature Park, a fascinating natural and cultural landscape. You can easily walk a part from Monte S. Caterina along the trail no. 24. passing old farms to the Unterstell Cable Car. The SummerCard is valid for a single one-way ticket of the cable car. Directly at the valley station of the cable car is the Naturno/Compaccio bus stop, from there you can take the return journey on the public bus to Schnalstal Valley. The hike is possible also from Unterstell to Monte S. Caterina.

Discover the flora and fauna of the Schnalstal Valley on four guided hikes. Our certified hiking guide Richard accompanies you on our organised hikes and introduces you to the mountains of the Schnalstal Valley. The Summercard allows you to participate free of charge in four guided hikes chosen from our weekly programme, such as the hike to the Schnalstal Valley's Sonnenberg, the hike from Maso Corto to Hasenkofel and the Langgrub Valley to the Lazaun plateau or the hike along the „Via Monachorum“.

Monte S. Caterina:
After the tight canyon at the entrance to the valley, the valley widens and you will see the chapel of the village of Monte S. Caterina/Katharinaberg on your right. The chapel is like a signpost for the village. Once upon a time, this rocky hill was crowned with the castle of the „Lords of Schnals“, which gave the valley its name.

Certosa: Place of the Carthusian monks
Founded in 1326 by Carthusian monks, the Allerengelberg Monastery forms a dramatic backdrop to the picturesque village of Certosa/Karthaus in Schnalstal Valley.
The monks inhabited its walls in peace and seclusion for over 400 years. With the advent of secularization under Joseph II, the Carthusian abbey in the Schnalstal Valley was closed in 1782 and the buildings converted into living quarters. The former Carthusian abbey has remained intact and is open to visitors year round
