The Zirmtal seen Lakes are among the most spectacular on the Nörderberg
Mountain. Their unique location and magnificent landscape
make this an unforgettable hiking experience. The ideal time is from
the beginning of summer until autumn (weather permitting). Especially
recommended in June when the Alpine roses are in bloom.
By car, drive to the village of Castelbello/Kastelbell, about 8 km from Naturno/Naturns. Cross the Adige River then head towards Lacinigo/ Latschinig and to Montefranco/Freiberg. Follow the gravel road uphill up to the “Alte Säge” car park, from where the hike to the
Zirmtalseen Lakes begins. Follow the wide forest track for a short stretch before reaching the Marzoner Alm mountain hut. Then take Trail No. 18 just behind the hut through the forest to the “Schweinstall” from where there’s a progressively steep climb. Continue on
Trail No. 18 towards the Zirmtalalm mountain hut, across several forest clearings and follow the stream against the current as it flows down from the Zirmtalseen Lakes. Hike uphill on the final stretch of the trail and proceed to the clearing at the edge of the forest. Here
you’ll arrive at the rustic Zirmtalalm refuge and the shimmering, turquoise
waters of the Zirmtalseen Lakes. Just 5 minutes of walk above the refuge is a high moor. Reaching this picturesque landscape is worth the effort and the small refuge offers a variety of sumptuous
local delicacies. The return is along the same route as the outward trip. At the car park, take the road to Naturno via the villages of Montefranco, Lacinigo and Castelbello.
