    On the ascent, at the Ochsenfelder Alm, the Via Alpina continues *behind* the last house, straight up for 1min to find the trail. The trail goes up the spur in switchbacks (not up the valley floor any longer).

    Superb trail on the way down. Beautiful switchbacks carved and secured with stone walls built into the mountainside.

    Highly misleading, false GPS coordinates further down the descent. Descend on trail 9, then switch to trail 1 (already in the valley) when that branches off. Detailed descriptions in guidebook report on trail 1 in the wrong direction. -- Do not take trail 8 on the descent! (Detour, bad.)

    Bakery in center of town Antholz-Mittert. Gol Supermarket, medium well stocked, as one heads out of town to R31. (At the end of town is a green area / children’s playground, shaded, with benches and water fountain.)

    Etape sans difficulté, malgré la forte dénivelée (1250m en montée et 1300m en descente, sur 18km).
    Hébergement à l'hôtel Bruggerwirt au centre de Anterselva di Mezzo, que j'avais pris soin de réserver la veille et pas très cher.

    5th July 2017 Stage without difficulty, despite the steep drop (1250m uphill and 1300m downhill, 18km). Accommodation at the Hotel Bruggerwirt in the center of Anterselva di Mezzo, which I had taken care to book the day before and not very expensive.

    There's a campsite in Antholz (13,- 1person per night), but it's even better camping at Außerweger Alm. I'm not sure if this is the official route, but a hiking path through the forest goes from Außerweger Alm directly to the campsite.

    Possibilité de raccourcir le chemin en prenant une jeep jusqu'à renseigner aupreés de votre logeur. La Grübelscharte n'est plus équipée de câbles. Super chemin presque prévu pour les VTT ! août 2015

    In Antholz you will stay at Gasthof Bruggerwirt. Have a look at the beautifully decorated all wooden ancient dining room.

    Après la ferme Karbach, ne pas chercher le sentier 42 ! Se contenter de suivre la piste carrossable, en ignorant les pistes secondaires, jusqu'à l'alpage Ochsenfeldalm. C'est après que l'on trouve le sentier 42 qui mène au col de Grübel.
    Ah ! si J.L. avait eu une tente ! Il y a un camping sympa à Antholz-Mittertal ; la patronne qui m'avait proposé un emplacement pour 13 € (au lieu de 15 €) m'a finalement fait dormir dans une caravane pour le même prix.

    After Karbach farm, the path does not look 42! Simply follow the vehicle track, ignoring side tracks to the pasture Ochsenfeldalm. This is after we find the path that leads to the 42 neck Gruebel. Ah! if JL had a tent! There is a nice camping in Antholz-Mittertal, the boss who offered me a place for € 13 (instead of 15 €) finally made me sleep in a caravan for the same price.

    Magnifique étape. A mon arrivée à ANTHOLZ-MITTERTAL, j'ai eu des difficultés à trouver un hebergement. Finalement, par l'intermédiaire d'un hotelier, j'ai été hébergé chez l'habitant...mais en sous-sol et au tarif d'une "Suite présidentielle" .Bref , ça sentait l'embrouille !
    J'ai pris le diner et le petit déjeuner au

    Belle ambiance d'une ancienne auberge de village ...mais prix élévés pour une qualité trés moyenne . Je n'ai pas vraiment apprécié l'ambiance particulière de ce village .

    Magnificent stage. When I arrived at ANTHOLZ-Mittertal, I had difficulty finding accommodation. Finally, through a hotelier, I was hosted homestay ... but in the basement and the price of a "Presidential Suite." In short, it smelled confused! I had dinner and breakfast Gasthof BRUGGERWIRT Fam Simon NIEDELKOFLER I-39030 ANTHOLZ Mittertal Tel 00 39 (0) 474 492 120 Email: Beautiful atmosphere of an old village inn ... but high prices for very average quality. I have not really enjoyed the special atmosphere of this village. ANTHOZ-MITTAL ... Countries "rats"?
