A real highlight of the hike is crossing the border into Italy. After a hike of almost two hours you can cross the boundary stone to South Tyrol in the middle of a beautiful mountain scenery. From there it is a good 5 minutes to the Pfitscherjochhaus, where you can enjoy traditional Italian spaghetti. Ottimo!
