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!

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!
