One of THE trail classics in the Upper Venosta Valley - a dream view from the famous viewing rock

From Resia/Reschen you walk northward across the border to our Austrian neighbours and 500 m before the valley station of the Bergkastel (Nauders in Austria) cableway, sharp right across a fairly steep gravel road up to the mountain station. Rest point in the mountain restaurant bearing the same name. Now the most beautiful part of the tour begins. Via the same way back to the Bergkastelalpe pasture and then left to the wonderful Plamortböden moor as well as the tank barriers which are well-known far beyond the borders. Here you can use the forest road or the beautifully laid trails (S2). After passing the barriers, the view over the Venosta Valley opens up with the unique lake scenery and a fantastic panoramic view from the viewpoint at the rock. Down to Resia with great views in your bag, continue either via the - in part - technically more challenging bunker trail (S2), followed by the Etsch trail (S1) leading into the woods or via the old military path. Our evening drink is awaiting us directly at the lake.
