Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    Stone steps, wooden steps, metal steps - probably even more than 1,000 pieces. Up and down, the Meraner Höhenweg winds along the steep slopes of the Texel group. As a reward for the effort, there are always wonderful views into the Adige Valley and the Vinschgau Valley.

    The hike through the "1000-step gorge", from Giggelberg to Unterstell, leads through a spectacular landscape on the southern slopes of the Texel Group in the Ötztal Alps. Thanks to the two cable car rides, at the start of the tour and at the end of the tour, the landscape can be enjoyed especially intensively on the Meraner Land and in the mountains of South Tyrol.

    As the name implies: steps ;-)
    Stone, wood and metal. Up and down.
    The construction of two suspension bridges has reduced the number of steps and made the way more pleasant.

    Good shoes and breathers. Definitely worth it, but plan some time and take something to drink

    Strenuous part of the way. But the effort is rewarded.

    Insanely exhausting, but worthwhile. Definitely take a lot of breaks and photo stops.

    Although there are not 1000 steps to go, because there is this great suspension bridge, but you still have to go down and on the other side up again. Good condition, sure-footedness and a head for heights one should have.

    Believe me, it sounds worse than it is. Worth it!

    One of the most exciting sections of the Meraner Höhenweg. As the gorge lies between the inns and Unterstell and Giggelberg cable car stations, it is popular for day trips and is therefore well attended from midday. You can enjoy the gorge in peace in the early morning at sunrise. The hike sounds more exhausting than I think it is, but concentration is required because some parts are quite steep and secured.
