Full of views: From Spiluck to the Scheibenberg
High above our Hotel Pacher, up in the idyllic district of Spiluck, we leave the car (or get off the free hiking bus) and set off on a fantastic 3.5-hour hike, covering a good 10.5 kilometres and 830 metres in altitude. The Scheibenberg is our favourite mountain and, with its 1,948 metres of altitude, the perfect lookout peak to marvel and gaze at. Before we can enjoy the magnificent panorama of the entire Eisack Valley, the path takes us uphill over varied terrain. For this hike you should be in good shape and already have some mountain experience, after all, the Scheibenberg is the highest mountain in the Puez-Odle Nature Park. If you like, you can make a detour to the Zirmaitalm and Steinwiesenalm after the summit. Those who still have strength and energy should definitely visit the idyllic "Spilucker Platte", one of the most beautiful panoramic spots in the region.
Mountain tour to the beautiful Schrüttenseen (lakes)
Pragser Wildsee, Reschensee and Karersee are undoubtedly beautiful, but often hopelessly overcrowded, especially in the warm months of the year. Near Brixen there are two dreamlike mountain lakes that can easily compete in terms of natural beauty, but are hardly known. If you want to admire them, you "have" to cover 900 metres in altitude and 12 kilometres on foot. Halfway trained mountain enthusiasts can complete the classic tour to the Schrütten lakes in a good five and a half hours. Those who prefer a more leisurely pace can drive to the "Talschluss Schalderer Tal" hikers' car park and march from there along the rushing stream and past fairytale menhir stones for a good two and a half hours to the Großer Schrüttensee. The small Schrüttensee is only a few minutes' walk away. Our tip: Continue via the Ochsenalm and make a circular hike out of it.
