The Rodenecker-Lüsner Alm high plateau extends over 20 km² at an altitude of 1,500 to 2,200 metres above the Eisacktal valley. Along with Seiser Alm, it’s one of the largest high-mountain plateaus in Europe. There are several child-friendly walking paths and a good choice of huts serving refreshments along the way. This beautiful hiking area with its stunning panorama is suitable for walkers of every age, and the huts are located at a short distance from one another.

Imagine indulging with traditional South Tyrolean specialities while you take in the fantastic view of the Zillertal, Ötztal and Stubai Alps, Mt. Großglockner and the Geisler and Brenta ranges! And if that is not enough, from the Rodenecker-Lüsner Alm plateau you can continue and climb up the Astjoch pass at an altitude of 2,194 metres. Another favourite tour among our guests is the multi-day excursion on the Dolorama high mountain trail. If you are in the mood for a more leisurely and contemplative walk, the plateau offers you the Schöpfungsweg (creation trail), an experience designed to make the visitor “see, feel and wonder”. The starting point is by the Zumis car park. From there, the path leads to the Pianer Kreuz chapel. Various works of art along the way portray the stages of creation, inviting the wanderer to pause and contemplate.  

The Rodenecker-Lüsner Alm plateau is also a magnificent destination for a winter outing. Whether you prefer cross-country skiing, tobogganing, or walking on groomed winter trails, here you will find everything you can wish for, from pleasant paths to spectacular panoramic runs.

To add a sprinkle of romance to your experience, why not treat yourself and your loved one to a dinner under the full moon on the plateau? Savour home-made specialities by candlelight and moonlight and listen to the exciting stories our hiking guide has to tell.

The best way to get to the Rodenecker-Lüsner Alm plateau is by bus – the Zumis shuttle (Almbus) runs on a hourly basis from Mühlbach railway station to the Zumis car park. A useful tip: from mid-May to the beginning of November, you can use the Almencard to travel for free on the shuttle! Alternatively, you can travel by car and leave it at the Zumis car park (parking fees apply).

Do you think this is the perfect destination for you? Then don’t miss the opportunity to also visit Fane Alm or the Altfasstal valley for an extra dose of Alpine idyll.
