Alpine Pasture Hike l Around the Loischkopf

The first culinary highlight of our hike around the Loischkopf is the Alpine Pasture Parfienz. You can enjoy freshly made products from the dairy in the cozy outside guest area. The Furkaalpe is not a Sennalpe (dairy), but it's for breeding cattle. Nonetheless, you can take a break from your hike and enjoy a traditional Alpjause (snack), drinks and the beautiful view. The Alpe Rona is centrally located on the high plateau Tschengla, only about 10 minutes from the parking lot Tschengla. During the alpine season it spoils guests with Alpjausen, yoghurt, mixed-milk-drinks, cider and schnapps. The dairy also provides you with the opportunity to learn more about the process of cheese making (daily from 8:30 am). You can also taste and shop the products on-site. There is an annual Alpine Festival on August 15th.

Author's recommendation

The Alpine Pastures are managed from about mid-June to mid-September.

The tour can be made easier by taking the cableway. Futhermore, it's ideal for mountain biking.

Equipment

Festes Schuhwerk und entsprechende Wanderausrüstung sind notwendig.

Route description

Start: Bürseberg, Tschengla (parking lot for hikers)

End: Bürseberg, Tschengla (parking lot for hikers)

From the parking lot Tschengla we follow the signposts towards Butschaalpe. This Alpine Pasture is being farmed in cooperation with the Ronaalpe from where we take the path to the Burtscha mountain ridge which is located between Loischkopf and Taleukopf. We continue to the Innere Parpfienzalpe. A road leads across the Parpfienz saddle to the Furklaalpe. From here we hike down to the Ronaalpe and get back to the parking lot in about 10 minutes.
