Hiking

To St. Michael and the "Bärenfalle" (Bear trap)

Castelrotto/Kastelruth, Kastelruth/Castelrotto, Dolomites Region Seiser Alm
from center of

This hike takes us through wonderful meadow landscapes to the Panidersattel. Here there is a wonderful view of the Grödnertal, the Geislerspitzen and the Sella massif. In addition, there is always a magnificent view of Kastelruth.

In the 1900s, a bear trap which still survives to this day was built on the Panider Sattel/Passo Pinei. To lure the bear into the pit, a sheep or goat was tied to a nearby stake; the pit was covered over with branches or twigs such that, on approaching its prey, the bear would fall into the pit and be unable to escape.


This hiking tour can be found in the family hiking booklet “Out and About with Nix the Witch”.
