Mount Ivigna

LOOK DOWN ON THE CITY OF MERANO FROM ITS LOCAL MOUNTAIN

The Great Picco Ivigna, the local mountain of the municipalities of Merano, Avelengo and Scena, is an imposing granite mountain that reaches 2,581 meters in height. Its summit can be reached via various routes. Whether by a hike to the famous St. Oswald church, a hike to the Heini Holzer via ferrata with the whole family or from the south-west along an exposed ridge.

The normal route is doable for everyone and starts at the Meran 2000 mountain station. Following the panorama trail no.3 or no.18A from there you will reach the Waidmann hut while enjoying a unique view on the Dolomites along the way. Continuing on path no. 19A you pass by the small church of S. Osvaldo and arrive at the Kuhleiten hut. Along path no.19 you then reach the Small Picco Ivigna (2,552m). From this point on the summit of the Great Picco Ivigna can only be reached through the via ferrata and an exposed ridge. Once you reach the summit, all your efforts will be rewarded with a 360° view of the Zillertal Alps, the Oetztal Alps, the Tessa Group, the Ortles Group and the Dolomites.

The descent leads once more past the Kuhleiten alpine hut.

Swimming in the
