This leisurely walk is suitable for the whole family. It begins at the valley station of the Seiser Alm cable car and leads through pristine woods and meadows in St. Vigil and St. Konstantin to the idyllic Völser Weiher lake at the foot of the Schlern. The lake is a wonderful destination for a refreshing dip in the summer, while in winter it is an excellent destination for ice skating or a winter’s walk around the banks.
The walks begins at the valley station of the Seiser Alm cable car and leads firstly towards Salegg and shortly afterwards over a beautiful woodland trail (no. 2) through the Hauenstein wood. A slight descent takes you down to a wooden bridge which crosses the Strasser Graben before heading uphill again, over the beautiful "Tschurtsch" meadow with a view over the nearby Schlern, and up to Völser Weiher lake where you can jump in for a cooling dip on a hot summer’s day or, if you prefer, simply enjoy a stroll around the lake.
The path to Völs am Schlern (no. 1) takes you past the Zimmerlehen manor and a few farms, leading down through Obervöls and on to the village centre. You can return home by shuttle bus (line 2) or the public bus service (line 170) or, alternatively, walk back along the outward route.
Start is at the valley station of the Seiser Alm cable car. Several bus lines will bring you there.
