Description of the way

From the Berghotel (1370 m) right up and than immediately left to the church of Sesto, following the path signed with number 1 (passing a wooden throne). Here close to the Goldenes Kreuz Gasthaus and a wooden fountain starts the Consideration way (4d-Bergweg) which takes you to the chapel in the wood. On this way you see lovely farms and coloured meadows. You will notice that the forest around the chapel in the wood is mystical and in the fascism time (between World War I and II) the inhabitants had to absolve secret German messes, because they were not allowed to speak their mother tongue. We follow the path to arrive at a larger path (number 4), which leads up for a short time until a crossing where we take the road on the right, signed with the number 2 to the Waldruhe (restaurant with a wonderful terrace to eat). Here we follow the road on the left to the Holzer farm (Ausserbacher) and further on, on a little path to arrive at the Monte di Mezzo – Gasthof Panorama. From here steep down on path nr. 3 towards home on the path nr. 1 around Sexten to the Berghotel.

Points of retreat

Gasthof Waldruhe (beautiful terrace) and Helmhang hut

Advices and suggestions

This easy but wonderful hike first follows the way around Sesto, passing the wonderful cemetery of Sesto and arriving at the chapel in the wood. From there it always stays at the sunny side of the valley with really nice views. An alternative way home from the Gasthof Panorama is passing the Helmhang hut and the farms above the Berghotel. This tour is not indicated for strollers.

Culture, mystical woods, old farmhouses and wonderful views await you.
