Hike along the Fischerwaals

Montechiaro/Lichtenberg, Prad am Stilfser Joch/Prato allo Stelvio, Vinschgau/Val Venosta
from center

The irrigation channel is shaded in the midst of the Stelvio National Park. View into the Lower Vinschgau and up to the Upper Vinschgau basin.

The "Waalschelle," which is attached to a larch tree above the irrigation canal, can be heard from afar. Opportunity to hike to Tschengelsberg Castle.

Tschengelsberg Castle was probably built in the 12th century by the eponymous knightly family as their ancestral seat. In the 14th century, it lost its significance due to its remote location and was thereafter used only as a mountain fortress in case of defense. It was replaced by Tschenglsburg, a comfortable, fortified residence. From then on, Tschengelsberg Castle was also called Hinterburg. The castle's construction site was strategically well chosen.
