Walking time:
2 h

Nature of trail:
Medium difficulty mountain trail

Departure point:
From the Erzherzog Johann Hotel, it’s just an easy bus-ride to the valley station (Pichler bus stop) of the Taser cable car. You can also walk to the Pichler valley station in around 40 minutes. From there, a cable-car trip – outward-bound only – takes you up to the Taser cable car mountain station.

When you walk out from the cable car mountain station, you soon get to a short, tarred stretch of road which takes you to the Greitererhof restaurant and a path leading through a pine forest. A pleasant, well-signposted route, flat practically all the way, takes you to the Gsteier mountain restaurant.

A little below the Gsteier farm & mountain lodge, you will find a middle-station with a difference. The Meran 2000 cable car only stops on request (ring the bell to let them know) and opens straight out onto a long, airy bridge connected to the cable car pylon. A unique feat of architecture indeed.
