Directions

The hike to Astjoch starts at the Kreuzner parking lot above the hamlet of Ellen. Below the parking, the well-marked forest trail no. 67 branches off in direction Astjoch/Burgstall. It leads on a pleasant ascent to the charming alpine hut "Walderalm", which after about an hour is the perfect place to take a break and enjoy the view of the Bruneck valley basin. 

Behind the hut, the trail winds its way to the near forest border and then climbs gently through panoramic meadows and pastures to Astjoch. At the high summit cross, you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the Pustertal valley, the Zillertal Alps, the Eisacktal valley and the Dolomites. A panorama point displays the names of some of the surrounding mountain peaks.

How to get there

Public transport from Mobility Center Bruneck/Brunico:
With the shuttle bus "Almbus" (runs from the beginning of June till the end of October) to Ellen/Elle parking "Kreuzner".
