Route description

This relaxing recreational hike to the Waidmannalm Mountain Hut begins on Pfiffinger Köpfl, which is accessible from Hafling/Falzeben either with the Falzeben Cable Car or via the Meran 2000 Funicular. 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.
