General description

Every day, you can climb another summit. You will definitely have to hike up the leg-endary Alpine rage if the "Hohen Reisch" if you want to be called a friend in South Tyrol. It is one of the most beautiful views of the Sarntal Alps, from where you can see the entire Dolomite group, as well as the Marmolata and the Ortler mountains. Even if the weather should not turn like zhe weather you would like, a hiking trip to the "Stanernen Mandln" (stone men) is extrenely fascinating. There are more than one hundred, which have been built over time, and most of them are af an impressive height. They are like a group of soldiers.

Here, at an altitude of 2,000 meters, they say that for more than 500 years, witches have performed their dances and celebrations with the Devil. There are terrible stories around, which talk about wath happened during a thunderstorm and also about the eating children etc. A legal document from 1540 states that Barbara Pachler was accused af meeting with devils and witches and the document is used to support the old stories. Ancient signs seem to prove that the outlook was used as a Celtic place about thousands of years ago.
