Once upon a time, in the woods above the Tuff Alm, there lived a rather unusual man: Franz Mich, “Migg,” to all those who knew him was a hermit who lived alone in his cave. The cave is still there to this day, and has been preserved together with all of his belongings. This tour leads you to the world of Migg…

This hiking tour can be found in the family hiking booklet “Out and About with Nix the Witch”.

At the Völser Weiher lake, which you can also walk around, the trail continues along a pram-friendly forest road to the Tuff Alm mountain hut, where you will find a fantastic playground and petting zoo with rabbits and goats. Cows and horses, alpacas and even camels graze on the surrounding meadows. Continue through the forest (without a pram!) on trail no. 8. After a small bridge, turn left up a steep path (no. 8B „Migghöhle“) to get to the cave where Migg lived. He was an extraordinary person, and you can still see his furniture in the cave, including his bed and simple cooking utensils.
To return, you can go past the Tuff Alm mountain hut again or, if you want to continue onwards, follow path no. 8 to the Hofer Alpl mountain hut past Ums to the Völser Weiher lake.

Refreshment stop on the hiking trail. Pram-friendly until Tuffalm mountain hut.

In the summer months (from the beginning of June to mid-September), you can take bus no. 13 from Völs.

Alternatively, pay-parking facilities are available at the lake. We recommend hiking from Fiè to the starting point, as it is a wonderful short trip.
