The hike to the Mittagsspitze (walking time 3 hours) is classified as medium difficulty. The difference in altitude of 710 m requires good physical condition. The mountain tour in the Sterzing Ratschings hiking area starts in Schluppes in Jaufental valley. At about 600 m the forest path no. 12 leads through a beautiful natural landscape before entering the Jaufental. Turn left near the signpost no.16 Mittagsspitze. The path, quite steep especially at the beginning, leads through the forest. Enjoy the peace and quiet that accompany you on this beautiful tour in South Tyrol. The trail continues past the forest line until it reaches the avalanche barrier below the Mittagsspitze. From here you continue along the ridge until you reach the summit cross at 2,052 m. Enjoy the spectacular view before heading back.
