    On the summit plateau of the Schöneck in the Sarntal valley, hikers can expect over 100 interesting figures. From stone slabs they are piled up the "Stoanernen Mandln". For half a millennium, they are standing around the cross and guard the "Great Reisch". Manhoh wait and admire.

    Legend has it that this was a popular witch haunt where witches met devils and celebrated wild parties.

    An epic collection of small stone mounds way up in the Alps. Legend has it that staying too long saps your energy, which is not advisable as the way back down isn't the easiest! The views of both the Alps and the Dolomites are stunning. Huge Highlight!

    The walk up is fairly easy, and the view from the top is breathtaking.

    More than a hundred stone figures line up at this legendary place - in their midst the summit cross of the Schöneck. What's up with these characters and how they came about is still puzzling. The theories range from the pastime of shepherds or hikers to the dark past: At that time this place supposedly served the witches as a place of worship. Even if the first of the Mandln really come from the Celts is unclear - nevertheless, one feels here at a magical power place, the Stonehenge of the Sarntaler Alps so to speak!

    As a way back I recommend the somewhat hidden hiking trail to the east - over a small hilltop down the forest. Then you do not have the same path twice.

    the challenging ascent with a mega view more than compensates, especially when the sky is clear.

    You need enough time for this place. On the one hand to have a look at all the mandrels, on the other hand to possibly create a mandl yourself. Of course, there must also be time to rest.
