Hiking tour Becherhaus
A beautiful, moderately difficult hike starting in the farthest corner of the Ridnaun valley.
After a long ascent, which leads over some glacier and easy climbing passages, you finally arrive at the Becherhaus - the highest refuge in all of South Tyrol. It is recommended to spend one night in the Becherhaus and to spread the ascent and descent over two days.
Starting point of the tour
Maiern in the Ridnaun Valley
Destination of the tour
You can park directly at the Schneeberg Mining Museum in Maiern. There you take hiking trail no. 9 first through the forest, past the Aglsbodenalm. Then the trail continues without much difficulty to the Grohmannhütte. From here the trail is much steeper, but mostly in serpentines to the Teplitzerhütte.
Continuing on trail no. 9, which shows more and more of its rugged, rocky side, the destination gradually seems close. After 50 m over the side-sloping glacier tongue comes the last, rather steep section, which you master secured and with easy climbing. Then you reach the summit at the Becherhaus, where you can enjoy the wonderful view and refreshments.
Water- and snowproof hiking boots, possibly climbing shoes, hiking poles, sunglasses.
