Rittner Alm

Mountainbike-Tour III Oberbozen - Gasteiger Sattel

From the mountain station of the Ritten cable car in Oberbozen to the high moor on the Rosswagen to the Schön Alm and the alpine pasture area between Ritten and Villanders.


General description
The clearly visible stone walls along the trail bear witness to an alpine pasture dispute between Ritten and Villanders that was fought out here for over 500 years The beautifully laid out alpine pasture trail leads below the summit of the Rittner Horn to the Gasteiger Sattel. A long, therefore moderately difficult mountain bike tour in the Sarntal Alps with unforgettable views of the Dolomites.
Route description
The MTB tour starts in Oberbozen at the mountain station of the cable car Ritten and follows the road in a westerly direction (sign and marking no. 2), at the fork in the road by the stores slightly uphill to the Zagglermoos and left through the small commercial zone to the beginning of the "Wald-Wild-Wunder-Weg". Here you turn left into the "Stauseeweg" (the family hiking trail no. 16 is a pushing trail for bikers) until you reach the "Lobishof". Continue along the wide hiking trail (marking no. 18A) to the "Bacherle", past the "Moserhof" to the country road (be careful at the junction). Here you turn right and follow the road for about 100 m to the bus stop in Riggermoos. Now cross the road to the left and walk moderately steep (marking no. 6) through the sparse "Gunggelwald" forest to the Tann. At the bus stop "Tann" follow the road with little traffic or the flanking footpath (marking no. 1) to Pemmern. At the collective parking lot at the valley station of the mountain railroad, follow the traffic-calmed municipal road (marking no. 7) to the Rosswagen and turn right into the forest. At the barrier the alpine path begins (marking no. 4), which leads rather steeply up to the "Schön Alm". Here a magnificent panorama opens up, from the western Dolomites, to the Brenta and Ortler groups, to the Ötztal Alps. The alpine path now runs gently uphill to the huts "Unterhorn" and "Feltuner". At the Feltuner hut, head uphill (close the fence gate - grazing cattle!). At the next fork in the road, keep to the right (another fence gate) until you reach the fork in the road below a sheep barn. Here you turn left and go around the summit of the Rittner Horn. On nice wide paths you overcome the undulating terrain of the Rittner Alm with its striking stone walls until you reach the crossroads in "Tramis". Soon you reach the Gasteiger Sattel, the destination of the tour. The descent follows the same route as the ascent. Please set a respectful pace.
