Wieserhütte – The alpine lodge in the Altafossa Valley
The lodge Wieserhütte is located in the picturesque Altafossa Valley at an altitude of 1,800 meters above sea level, nestled in a beautiful natural landscape. The rustic alpine hut can be reached from Maranza on a hike or a mountain bike tour. The South Tyrolean village – set on a plateau overlooking the Pusteria Valley – is located only seven kilometres from the Wieserhütte. Along the way you may fully enjoy the beautiful nature of the South Tyrolean Alps. You will come by green meadows and rushing mountain streams with crystal clear spring water. Time and again you’ll encounter grazing cows and horses; with a bit of luck you may even observe marmots playing. Exciting excursions through the Altafossa Valley, to the Campolago Lakes, the Campolago Peak and the Gaisjoch Peak start at the lodge. Furthermore, close by you will find the crossings to Fundres and Valles.
