Directions

Start is at Nova Levante/Welschnofen cable car parking lot- ascent with the Laurin I cable car to the Frommer Alm hut. From here, you hike along path [1A], an easy hiking path to the Ochsenhütte hut, from where you have a wonderful view of the Catinaccio/Rosengarten on the sun terrace, while homemade specialities invite you to enjoy them. Continue on path [1A] across colorful mountain meadows to the junction with path [9], which leads to the highlight panorama point, “The Kaiserstein”. From here, enjoy the magnificent view of the Catinaccio/Rosengarten and pause for a moment. 
Return via path [9] to the car park. Cross the street Via Nigra here and continue on path [9] to the Hotel Moseralm. The Tschein chairlift takes you comfortably up to the Monte Coronella/Tscheinberg. From here, you can take the new König Laurin I cable car and then the Laurin I cable car back to the starting point.
