Swimming in the
S. Pancrazio lake


The S. Pancrazio lake is the ideal destination for nature lovers and for those seeking peace and quiet. The small mountain lake sits in an embedded sunny spot which offers a stunning panoramic view of the neighboring Sarentino valley.

The hike leads along trail no. 3 from the mountain station of Merano 2000 to the Gioco di Pietramala (2.138m) from where it follows on trail no. 3A. After a short, final along the European long-distance trail E5 you will reach the S. Pancrazio lake. Once there, tired hikers can cool their feet in the water while during summer the braver fellows will also jump into the lake’s cold water and take a refreshing swim.

Return to the mountain station of Merano 2000 along the same route.
As alternative, return to the Kreuzjöchl via the Meraner hut and descend from there over the Moschwald hut until Falzeben (we only recommend this return itinerary if you also started your journey from Falzeben).
TIME ONE-WAY: 2,5 hours
MAX. HEIGHT: 2.138 m
TRAIL-NO.: 3-3A-E5
HUTS: Panorama Bistro, Piffinger Köpfl alpine hut, Waidmann alpine hut

Mount Ivigna

There are several ways to get to the cross at Mount Ivigna - the feeling at the summit is always the same. Feelings of freedom come up after a via ferrata tour, a hike over the St. Oswald Church or the exposed south-west degree. A must: the Kuhleiten Alpine Hut, where friendliness is at home.
