GRANDE PICCO IVIGNA

GRANDE PICCO IVIGNA

The city at your feet

Grande Picco Ivigna, the larger of the two peaks of Mount Ivigna, towers magnificently over Merano, Avelengo and Scena at 2581 m above sea-level. The granite summit can be reached along several routes: through its exposed south-western flank, passing the quaint mountain-top chapel dedicated to St Oswald or along the Heini Holzer via ferrata – an unforgettable outdoor experience for the whole family.

The standard trail is easy and suitable for all levels of hiking expertise: From the Merano 2000 ropeway mountain station, it runs along the panoramic trail no. 3 or 18A past the Malga Waidmann inn with its jaw-dropping views of the Dolomites. The hike then continues along trail no. 19A past the chapel of St Oswald to the Rifugio Kuhleiten inn, and on trail no. 19 to the smaller of the two peaks at 2552 m: Piccolo Picco Ivigna.

From there, the Grande Picco Ivigna summit can only be reached along the via ferrata that leads across a slightly dizzying, quite exposed ridge.

Once you're at the top, you'll be rewarded with stunning 360° panoramic views as far as the Zillertal and Ötztal Alps, the Ortles and Gruppo Tessa ranges as well as the magnificent Dolomites.

Return via the Rifugio Kuhleiten alpine hut.
