A very beautiful, somewhat strenuous hike from Laives/Leifers, through the Brantental valley, to Nova Ponente/Deutschnofen.

The trail starts in the centre of Laives/Leifers. From there the hike begins along Via Pietralba into the Brantental valley, past "Haus Emmaus" to the "Schwobmiel" refreshment point. Until here the road is paved, so you can reach it by car too. From the refreshment point, the somewhat stony, former carriage path no. 5 leads past the loading point of an abandoned fluorite mine, along the Brantental river through the wooded valley to the Hackl farm and then climbs north through the spruce forest to the Nova Ponente/Deutschnofen plateau. From this beautiful mountain village you have a wonderful panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. The view from the Obkircher inn (approx. 1430 m) is particularly beautiful and worth seeing. You can return to Laives/Leifers by bus.

Coming from the south:
Take the highway exit "Egna/Ora/Termeno-Neumarkt/Auer/Tramin" and follow the signs "Bolzano/Laives-Bozen/Leifers" for approx. 15 km. Then follow the signs for "Laives Sud/Leifers Süd" to reach the city centre.

Coming from the north:
Take the highway exit "Bolzano Sud/Bozen Süd" and then follow the signs for "Trento/Laives - Trient/Leifers" for approx. 10 km. After the tunnel connecting Bolzano/Bozen and Laives/Leifers, follow the signs for "Laives Nord/Leifers Nord" for approx. 1 km to reach the city centre.
