European long-distance hiking trail E5 - Meraner hut to Jenesien
The European long-distance hiking trail E5 leads from Lake Constance to the Adriatic Sea. One of the most beautiful and harmless sections runs from Meran 2000 to Jenesien.
The starting point of this stage is the Kirchsteiger hut (1,945m) or the Meraner hut (1,960m) on Meran 2000. Following the marking number 4, the long-distance hiking trail leads first up to the Spieler and the Kreuzjöchl and winds up to the highest point of the hike: the Kreuzjoch at 2,086 meters. Here is a viewing platform with a 360 ° view of the Dolomites, the Sarntaler Alps, the Texel and Brentagruppe up to the Ortler area. Continue on the ridge to the Auener Jöchl and down to the Möltner Kaser. The descent is via the Möltner Joch to Schermoos. The marker E5 continues over the larch meadows of the Salten to Jenesien.
