This adventure starts at the car park (north side) at the bottom of the ski lifts in Kappl. First cross the river and then, on the left side of the car park, turn right onto the forest path that leads up to the Visnitz-Alpe hut (1,825 metres). In several hairpin bends, the trail leads up through shady forest, past a waterfall and later above the Visnitzbach stream. At the alpine hut, which is open in summer, you can leave your bike. Pull on your hiking boots and continue along a farm road into the valley through lush alpine meadows. After only 250 metres, take the path to the left at the fork; it leads over the stream and then up the other side of the valley through pine forest. After a good two kilometres, just before you reach the end of the forest road, a somewhat steeper path branches off to the right. Above the treeline, the trail now leads through meadows and avalanche protection fences to the summit of the Mittagkopf (2,249 metres). From there you can enjoy fine views of Kappl and the Paznaun Valley

Return along the way you came.
