Watles Hiking Area

The Adventure Mountain in the Upper Venosta Valley

The Watles hiking and skiing area in the Upper Venosta Valley is well- known to winter athletes. However, in summer it is also ideal for its pristine hiking trails and spectacular panoramic views. The area above Burgusio/Burgeis and Malles/Mals is part of the Sesvenna Mountain range reaching a height of 2557 meters.

To the north, it goes as far as the Zerzertal Valley and towards the south there is the spectacular Slingia Valley. Lake Pfaffensee lies to the southeast of the Watles area. The hiking area and the Watles summit are easily reachable via Prämajur and the Plantapatsch Alpine hut. From there, the track leads across the southern ridge up to the peak. Climbing up the peak to Watles is a must for all mountain lovers who wish to spend their holiday in Upper Venosta Valley. Popular excursions are to the Plantapatsch Alpine hut, Höferalm mountain pasture and to Lake Pfaffensee. A walk to Slingia/Schlinig (1738 m) and up to the Sesvenna hut (2256 m) rewards the visitor with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. 

Amidst the expansive hiking area of Watles, there is the 1500 m² Spielesee – an artificial lake for children, designed as an exciting adventure playground for little ones and families.

The 4-seater chairlift is open from the 1st June to 29th October 2017 from 8.30 am - 12.30 am and 1.30 pm - 5 pm.
From 1st July to 31st August 2017 the charilift is open between 8.30 am - 5 pm (without lunch break).
