Short description

Fantastic alpine pasture tour: from Lüsen to the Kreuzwiesen meadows.

Description

The Lüsener Alm is the most extensive alpine pasture area in South Tyrol and, together with the Rodenecker Alm, forms a rewarding hiking area. Gentle alpine meadows, deep forests, views of the jagged peaks of the Dolomites and Sarntal Alps as well as countless hiking trails and rewarding hiking destinations.

Starting point of the tour

Car park above the Kompatschhof farm around the hamlet of Flitt near Lüsen

Destination point of the tour

Kreuzwiesen hut

Route description

The starting point is the car park above the Kompatschhof farm in the hamlet of Flitt near Lüsen. There, hikers follow the forest road no. 2/10 with the sign "Kreuzwiese". The forest road can also be shortened by hiking up a medium-steep slope. Here, too, the trail divides and hikers take trail no. 2 and soon reach the alpine slopes.

Here, hikers follow forest trail no. 2a at another fork in the trail and reach the meadow valley with the Putzerbach stream on a flat path through meadows and forests and then the destination of the hike, the Kreuzwiesenhütte. From there you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Lüsen alpine world and the mighty Peitlerkofel. The way back is either along the same path or very steep via the Gostalm, the Jungfraubrünnl and the hamlet of Rungg.
