The five lakes hike from the mountain station and back to Alp Gaffia notably attracts visitors wanting to see the many delightful shades of the crystal clear waters – while alpinists often opt for the climbing garden or climbing the Pizol summit to get their fill of adventure.

And further down there’s more to discover on the Garmil-Geohöhenweg (highland trail) with available smartphone information, Heidi’s gondola railway for children, water-woods and bird village on the Furt, the Heidi trail or hammock woods to hang around a while, Kneipp facility for kids and storytale magic in the Pardiel region.
