Promenade FennPromenade Fennaround the Fenn The Fenn Promenade from Klobenstein to Lengmoos is an incredibly beautiful mountain walk. From the railway station, take on the left no. 24 to the centre of Klobensteín and then walk eastward to the Zentral carpark where the ascent to the Fenn promenade begins. The route circles around the Fennbühel hill to the east. Then you keep to your right no. 20 and continue onwards until you come to the viewing platform, a wonderful spot to stop off for a breather. A plaque at this platform commemorates the opening of the promenade in 1898. Continuing onwards, in the shade of mixed woodland, you come to a hill with a view over the earth pyramids. The trail then crosses the slope and merges with the wide promenade trail at Lengmoos at the Amtmann, which leads left towards Klobenstein and, from there to the train station.Read more

The entire trail is seamed with picturesque descriptions of the dominant tree species: the mountain pine and the Swiss pine. Passing the “Round Table” and the “Dolomitoscope” the Loop Trail leads to the Unterhorn inn with its unique Alpine Rock Garden.
Next, the hike leads across the alpine pastures of Barbian (Barbianer Almen) to the mountain pine oil distillery, the mystical location in the “Pfannenstiehl” and finally to the highest point of the hike. From thence the tour moves across the alpine pastures of Ritten to the “Neue Berghütte”- the new mountain hut (not open to the public). Following the Heusteig track, lined with comfy spots to sit down and burbling wood troughs, you reach the Feltuner Hütte – popular refreshment and snack stop. From here it’s a short and easy walk back to the mountain terminal at Schwarzsee Spitze.

Hay trailHay trailStarting point: Schwarzseespitze mountain station
This alpine pasture hike along the "Heusteig" leads from the mountain station of the Rittner Horn cable car from Schwarzseespitze towards Unterhorn and on to Gissmann, the highest settlement on the Ritten. We follow the wide alpine path (19 and 1), past the Unterhornhaus to in front of the Feltuner Hütte. This is where the actual "hay trail" begins, which was once used by the Ritten shepherds in early summer to bring the first "mown" to the hay hut (Schupfe) a little lower down. The "Heusteig" marked 2A leads past two water troughs with good drinking water and joins hiking trail 2 just after a hay hut. From here you can climb about 50 metres in altitude via an unmarked trail to the vantage point at Gissmanner Nock (1,924 m).
Hiking trail 2 descends steadily to Gissmann. Then walk the 5.3 km along the traffic-calmed access road from Gissmann to Pemmern in about 1.5 hours. Hiking bus timetable
Interesting facts about mountain hay: The production of hay is still of great importance today. The meadows at lower altitudes produce the first hay as early as June. The mowing of the mountain hay, an extremely nutritious animal feed consisting mainly of herbs, begins somewhat later.Read more

IrrigationIrrigationNo growth without water. In the vineyards, the first large-scale vineyard irrigation with its own pressure took place in 1931 through a 450 m supply line from the tunnel along the Valle Isarco for the electric power station in Kardaun. With the construction (1951/54) of two further irrigation systems from the tunnel with water from the Sarntal valley for the electric power station in St. Anton, the higher vineyard sites (Obermagdalena, Signat) received a connection for irrigation. The supplementary irrigation ensures regular vine growth on the dry slopes with very rain-permeable soils due to their sandy-gravelly structure.Read more
