Amidst striking hillside pastures at a height of 2,000 m on the Tschögglberg mountain above Meltina/Mölten, the natural environment is so untouched that those hiking here might feel as if time has stood still. The “Stoanerne Mandln” is a place shrouded in myth where shepherds have stacked stones into cairns since prehistoric times. In the field of the “Stoanerne Mandln”, the meeting place of witches and priests, one can still sense the unique but hard to describe atmosphere, and there are fantastic views of the entire Dolomite range as far as the Marmolata and the King Ortler peaks

Route: the hike begins in Meltina at the tourist information office car park. Follow trail no. 13 to the Kircheben car park and on trail no. 15 to the Sattlerhütte mountain hut and the Möltner Kaser Alpine farm. Continue on trail no. 23A to the “Stoanerne Mandln”.

Return via the Möltner Kaser Alpine farm, then take trail E5 past the Fahrer Weiher pond to Schermoos and then back into the village on trail no. 4.

If you come by car from Brennero, take the motorway A22 until the exit "Bozen Süd". Here you can take the highway MeBo in direction to Merano (SS38) until you reach the exit of Terlano. At Terlano begins the mountain road to Mölten. You can also take the MEBO exit of Vilpiano and take the cable car to Schlaneid / Mölten.
