 The Potzmauer refuge is located along the famous European Path E5, a hiking route connecting the cities of Verona and Constance. Situated on the edge of a large clearing, it is an ideal place to enjoy the hut's typical dishes and also to enjoy a picnic surrounded by greenery. The refuge offers the possibility of an overnight stay.

Author’s recommendation

A very interesting excursion on European Path E5 which, from the Potzmauer, leads to the picturesque Lago Santo.
