Almost all hiking routes boast numerous great spots for a break along the way. However, there are also some routes without any mountain lodges or restaurants, for instance, the routes to Lake Madleinsee, Lake Vergrösssee and Rauher Kopf. These routes leave you with even more time to savour the breathtaking nature and exceptional views.

All these routes are located in the ski resort. This means that you can easily reach or shorten them by hopping on the cable car.

All hiking trails in the Paznaun valley are well signposted. There are signs at the start of every route as well as along the way, pointing you in the right direction.
