Hike to the Kanzel Viewpoint

Short hike from the lovely hamlet of Casignano near Montagna to the Kanzel Viewpoint high above the Valle dell’Adige valley

We reach Casignano (Gschnon) by car following the small road from Montagna to Gleno and Trodena. The junction near Molini (Mühlen) leads us to the southern side of the valley and to the small hamlet at 900 m a.s.l. At the Dorfnerhof tavern we start our hike following the path through the meadows and the forest to the Gstoagerhof.

Right before the farm we walk in serpentines uphill at the slope - it's a short steep section before we reach the forest road to the Kanzel Viewpoint. This special place offers a fabulous view on the Bassa Atesina area with Lake Caldaro and the town of Bolzano. On the way back we follow the forest path to the junction with the asphalt road which takes us back to our starting point again.
