A resting point with fabulous views

With the Pfarrach Scenic Nature Site, as of this year the Stubai nature sites have another special location that invites visitors to come and spend some time. This place is known simply as ‘Marchraste’ by the locals, which basically means a spot of land earmarked for taking a rest. With its small cross, this place also serves as an orientation point for farmers, who graze their cows and sheep in the surrounding area.



Start and finishing points: Telfes, Kapfers district (1,090 m)
Walking time: 4 ½ hours
Difference in altitude: 930 m
Rest points: Pfarrachalm (1,740 m)

Direct bus connection to Telfes. In Telfes, you travel upwards though the village to the district of Kapfers. Just past Hotel Oberhofer, you turn left and after a few minutes you come to a public car park.
The ascent to Pfarrachalm can either be made via the forest path or the Hirtensteig route (described here). The route starts off along the forest road and continues straight until the first bend. There, you take a left turn before a short trek brings you to the start of the Hirtensteig. Now the route climbs steeply until you finally come to the forest path again and you reach the Pfarrachalm from there (walking time: approx. 2 hours). From the Pfarrachalm, you can reach the Pfarrach Scenic Nature Site in around 15 minutes via the hiking trail in the direction of Saile/Nockspitze. The return route either follows the ascent trail or the forest path.
