Hiking paradise Mount Plose

Even from afar you can see their mighty mountain ridge, which is actually a mountain with three peaks: the Gabler (2,576 m), the Pfannspitze (2,547 m) and the Telegraph (2,486 m). If you explore the Plose, you have thus the key to our whole region in you hands. It’s perfect to indulge the walking desire, to break as a mountaineer to summit or to ride a mountain bike along wonderful panoramic trails and then race down exciting downhill passages. In our hiking hut you can stop before the way up or even better after your tour, regain strength and relax on our sun terrace. Here time never runs away – because the way up as well as the valley station are indeed just 200 meters in front of you.
