Waalwege are paths along the ancient irrigation channels. The Algunder Waalweg Trail is split in two parts. The 5 to 6 km long hike leads along an historical irrigation canal. The canal trail is almost flat. It is therefore ideal for older people or families with children. Hikers, young or old, will be rewarded with fantastic views of the Lagundo/Algund as well as the entirety of Merano/Meran and Environs. Route: the western part begins at the parking lot in front of the Töllgraben bridge. The starting point can be reached by bus Lagundo-Parcines/Partschins or by car. The canal trail leads via the two districts of Lagundo, Plars di Sopra/Oberplars and Plars di Mezzo/Mitterplars to the scenically located Lagundo village. From here, continue through beautiful vineyards to the Merano district of Quarazze/Gratsch and the small St. Magdalena Church. Depending on how much you want to hike, you can continue on the Tappeinerweg trail into the centre of Merano or back to Lagundo. Source/Map: “Kompass, Merano and Environs”
