2 SUMMITS - MADE EASY

MEDIUM-LENGTH HIKE AT MERANO 2000, SOUTH TYROL

The journey is the reward... especially in the mountains. However there is also the satisfaction, the feeling with which we are rewarded, when we overcome an obstacle or even our own limitations, when we achieve a goal that we have set ourselves.
Arrive at the top and simply change your perspective, marvelling at the panorama – surrounded by the seemingly endless skies – and the breath-taking scenery. Everyday life recedes far into the background, problems feel smaller, the blood flows more vigorously through our veins.

If you want to enjoy a sunny day, without great effort and without foregoing the satisfaction of having scaled the heights... here is our tip!

HAPPINESS SQUARED TWO SUMMITS IN ONE DAY

From the Ropeway Merano 2000 mountain station take trail no. 18A into the rearward hiking area, a valley, where two types of rock meet, granite and porphyry blocks come together here to form a fascinating landscape with many vantage points.
In 1,5 - 2 hours you will reach the Mittager chair lift, which will take you conveniently up to 2.300 metres.
From there you need to negotiate an increase in altitude of 100 metres on trail no. 13A as far as the first summit, the 2.390 metre high "Windspitz". The sight of the powerful Ivigna, whose silhouette feels almost close enough to touch here, and the view of the Dolomites are ample reward for your initial exertions.

A gulp of water and an apple are just the right thing now before turning away from the Windspitz to follow the turnoff to the “Mittager” summit at 2.422 metres.

Take a moment to look inside yourself.
Once up there you will be surrounded by a 360º panorama taking in Lake Caldaro in southern South Tyrol, the Sarentino Valley, the summits of the Passiria Valley, the distinctive skyline of the Dolomites, and even as far as the Ortles, the highest peak in South Tyrol, as well as Merano and its nearby valleys.
Now sit down on the expansive pastures and take a moment to look inside yourself. Doesn’t it feel good to be so far away from the hustle and bustle of the city?
On the way back, stop off at the Mittager refuge hut, just before the chair lift, and marvel at the huge flock of sheep that grazes peacefully on the pasture. Perhaps there will be someone who is happy to take a selfie with you...


The return journey follows the same route that you took to get here. If you still have plenty of energy and would like to extend your hike, you can go on foot from the "Mittager" to the Meraner Hut, then continue on to the Piffing mountain station (trail no.: 13A-18A).
And a delicious plate of South Tyrolean dumplings in one of the many ralpine cottages on the way back is a treat not to be missed.

Ride the ropeway to its mid-way station, a fascinating architectural feat, take a short walk downhill crossing the steep pastures of the Maso Gsteier inn and treat yourself to some of their famous home-cooked delicacies. From there, you can hike to scenic Scena, uphill to the mountain station of the ropeway or simply back down to the valley station.
GRANDE PICCO IVIGNA

GRANDE PICCO IVIGNA

There are several paths that lead to the top of Ivigna, but the feeling once you've reached the peak is always the same: After mastering its exposed south-western flank or completing the via ferrata to the top, a sense of pure freedom takes hold. An absolute must: a stop-over at the Rifugio Kuhleiten inn, the true home of Alpine hospitality.
