Hiking tip in South Tyrol | Kratzbergersee

Hiking in Meran, South Tyrol | Kratzbergersee

What’s better than spending a Monday outside of the office in the nature? I’ve been getting more and more lazy during the last few months, so I started to do some sport regularly – Kayla’s Bikini Body Guide, 2-3 x per week mountain biking, and I plan to go hiking at least once. Puh, quite a burden. But, if I start something, I will do it (hopefully at least).

Hiking to the lake KRATZBERGERSEE

I met some friends for a hiking tour to the lake Kratzbergersee last Monday. You can start either from Merano or from the valley Val Sarentino. The hike from Merano is quite easier.

We started from San Genesio, where we took the bus to Falzeben. From there, you can take a cable car up to the mountain station. Sporty people can take the hike under the cable car. Otherwise, you can use the cable car that starts directly from Merano up to the Pfiffinger Köpfl, which is the mountain station of Merano 2000. Did you know that the E5 European long distance path passes the Kratzbergersee?

We arrived at the lake Kratzbergersee after app. 2 hours. The lake is located at the steep western ridge Sarntaler Westkamm and offers a beautiful view. It was quite calm and empty in the morning. Around midday, there were many more people.

Around 3 pm, we arrived at Falzeben again. I was looking forward to eating dumplings with chanterelles. Hmmm! Unfortunately, I got a sunburn – never underestimate the sun when in the mountains! 50 SPF is a must!

I wish you a wonderful day!
