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“.

With the SummerCard, travel on the public bus is free throughout the valley, providing easy access to all the villages: Monte S. Caterina, Certosa, Raindl, Madonna di Senales, Vernago, Maso Corto and also the neighbor village Naturno. After a pleasant hike through the Schnalstal Valley or an excursion through Naturno, take the public bus in comfort back to your starting point. The card is valid within the municipal district of Schnalstal Valley and Naturno for your entire stay.

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
