Excursion from the center of Algund to one of the most beautiful viewing lodges in Burgraviato.
The name already expresses it: Ebeneich, an old farmstead, is located on a somewhat flatter, flat shoulder of land on the steep mountain slope that rises in the back of Algund towards the Mutspitze and the almost three-thousand-meter peak Tschigot (2998 m). Already in the 14th century a farm was mentioned here. By dividing the farm in more recent times, an excursion inn with a large panoramic terrace was created, one of the most beautiful viewing boxes in Burggrafenamt! The view over the Merano basin, the Adige valley and the distant mountains almost literally takes your breath away!
If you want to reach Vellau by direct ascent, you will need a lot of stamina. Turn left at the graveyard, walk to the Grabbach, take the path along the stream until you come to the 3rd bridge. Turn first left and then right onto a tarmac road, which leads you to the Blumenthalerhof. After the 4th bridge, turn left to the Blumenthalerhof (# 25) and ascend to Ebeneich. Turn right and walk through the orchard up to the Birbamegg. The paths # 25 and # 26 lead you through the forest to the Vellau parish church. Unique panoramic view across the entire burgrave's district. Return journey with the bus or the chairlift to Vellau.
