Route description

Starting from the mountain station at Meran 2000, hiking trail no. 3 passes the Waidmannalm Mountain Hut and continues up to the little St. Oswald Church (2,200 m). Continue via the Oswald gap to the Kuhleitenhütte Mountain Hut at 2,363 m. Reach the little Ifinger peak (2,552 m) by following trail no. 19. Fantastic views can already be enjoyed at this point where the via ferrata to the Großer Ifinger peak begins. These rocky passages are only for sure-footed hikers with a good head for heights. Return by the same route.


Climbing equipment rental at the Sportservice Erwin Stricker shop at the summit station of the funicular and cable car.

Safety instructions

Sure-footedness and a good head for heights are required!

General description

At an elevation of 2,581 m, the Ifinger is Schenna/Scena local mountain. The peak offers a fantastic panorama. Plenty of mountain experience, sure-footedness, a good head for heights, and via ferrata equipment are required as the ascent to the peak includes a via ferrata.

Author's tip

An ascent at sunrise is worthwhile - ideally combined with a hearty alpine breakfast in one of the huts.
