The Witches’ Chairs and the Marinzen Alpine pasture • South Tyrol

This hike takes you on the trail of the famous Schlern witches to the mystical witch's chairs. According to legend, the two rock chairs in the Tiosler Forest served as a resting place for the Schlern witches. Whether these are objects of prehistoric significance or simply a game of nature - we cannot say for sure. For the little ones, there is a children's playground at the Marinzen alpine pasture.


This hike can also be found in the family hiking book “Out and About with Nix the Witch”.
