Directions

The "Lanebach" Circuit is long, with several steep segments, and thus requires a high degree of fitness, stamina, and sure-footedness. The hike begins at the "Gasthof Bauhof" Inn in Uttenheim and immediately rises as you proceed to the northwest. You will continue along several smaller and larger serpentines and thus ascend about 600 metres to arrive at the farm "Plankstoan-Hof" (1.484 m above sea level). You then cross the brook "Schlösslbach" and hike to the south and southeast. Up until the mid-1980s, the children of "Lanebach" would take this trail in order to get to the Mountain School. From the Egger farmsteads, you ascend (again via serpentines and in part steep terrain) and return to your starting point.

How to get there

Public transport from Mobility Center Bruneck/Brunico:
With the bus 450 to Gais, stop "Dorf/Paese".
