The Feldthurns mountain pasture in summer

Feldthurns mountain pasture


Feldthurns affords you an almost limitless enjoyment of Mother Nature in all Her glory. Along the valley floor near Schrambach/San Pietro Mezzomonte, the bicycle path passes by and the mid-altitude ridge of the Eisack Valley – where the village of Feldthurns is located – is the ideal starting point for lengthy outings along the Chestnut Trail, to visit country manors, churches, and monasteries. You'll pass through majestic forests in the nearby villages of Villanders and Barbian.

Starting at an altitude of about 2,000 meters above sea-level, you find an extensive network of trails affording wonderful views - the Feldthurns mountain pasture. From here, you can continue to Lake Radlsee and the Alpine hut with the same name, the mountain Köninganger (2,439 m), or the Latzfons and the Villanders alpine pasture. The cozy refreshment stops and Alpine refuges offer tasty South Tyrolean specialties.

The Lake Radlsee

The lake Radlsee is located at an altitude of 2,250 m on the Feldthurns mountain pasture and is a popular hiking destination, especially in the warmer months. The Radlsee hut is located directly at the mountain lake, where you can stop to cool off after a hike of about 2.5 hours. The Radlsee not only offers a breathtaking mountain panorama but is also very much appreciated for its tranquillity and isolation from the stressful hustle and bustle of the cities.

According to an old legend, a plow wheel that sank in Lake Valdurna, located three hours away, later resurfaced in the waters of lake Radlsee. The mountain lake is thus said to be connected underground with the Durnholzer Lake and further with the Mediterranean Sea and is believed to have originally been a volcanic crater.
