On the Hochmuth
under the guest house Steinegg there is a viewing platform
, which represents a basket. Reference is made to the arduous, historical cultivation of the fields on the steep slopes of the Muthöfe
, where winches were used to pull up baskets of soil and manure from the fields in order to make them available for cultivation again.
The viewing platform offers a breathtaking panoramic view of Merano and the Adige Valley
as well as the surrounding mountains. The platform is equipped with two telescopes and provides information on the mountains visible from Hochmuth and on the former cultivation of the steep fields of the Muthöfe. ©
