Innerfeldtal and Fischleintal valleys
Clear blue skies, the last warm sunshine and the intensive yellow of the “fiery” larches are the ideal setting for two great walks through the autumnal Pustertal. The larch meadows at the start of Innerfeldtal valley always make a fine photograph. The valley runs between Innichen and Sexten and is bounded to the east by the Dreischusterspitze (at 3152 metres the highest peak in the Sextner Dolomiten park) and the Haunold massif to the west.
The leisurely walk takes you up to 1626 metres above sea level to the Dreischusterhütte refuge that is surrounded by mountain pines.
The second excursion starts from Sexten/Moos and follows the famous Fischleintal valley as far as the Talschlusshütte refuge (1548 metres above sea level), which is framed by the “Sextner Sonnenuhr” (the so-called sun dial of Sesto) with the peaks of Zehner Spitze, Elferspitze, Zwölferspitze and Einserkofel .
Already two hundred years ago, the famous geologist Alexander von Humboldt was so impressed by this valley that is just 4.5 km long that he called it “one of the most beautiful valleys on earth”.
