    Trail c | Gfrill - Montan
    Neumarkt/Egna, The South Tyrolean Wine Road

    This segment leads from the village of Gfrill (1,300 meters elevation) to Montan (500 meters above sea-level). At the beginning, the route is slightly uphill via the Gfrill Saddle and then downhill until you reach Gschnon (good place to stop for a rest). You will then ascend via Gsteig (option for refreshments and overnight lodgings) and down to the impressive Glen Waterfall. You will then take the last part along the old railroad route of the former Fleims Valley railroad to the famed Pinot Noir village of Montan.

    Helpful hint for this route: Take the little side-trip from Gsteig to the impressive "Kanzel" looming high above the Unterland district. You'll be rewarded with a fantastic view!

    Trail f | Truden - Schwarzhorn - Jochgrimm
    The South Tyrolean Wine Road

    This challenging hike from Truden via the Schwarzhorn and all the way to the Jochgrimm is a unique adventure. From Truden, you'll first proceed uphill to Kaltenbrunn (refreshment stop and access to public transportation). From here, you can then proceed to the famous "Ice Holes" – an unusual phenomenon where cold air streams out of holes in the ground even on the hottest days of summer. You will then proceed steadily uphill via the challenging "Leitensteig" staircase until you come to the Kugeljoch; from this pass, you have a magnificent panoramic view of the Fleims Valley. From the Kugeljoch, you will continue to the Schwarzhorn (2,439 meters above sea-level). Finally, you follow the descending path to the Jochgrimm, the goal of this tour. This hike offers a wealth of unique natural beauty and is – in spite of the level of difficulty – an absolute "must" for ambitious hikers.

    Trail b | Aldein - Montan
    Montan/Montagna, The South Tyrolean Wine Road

    On this segment, you will proceed from Aldein uphill to Montan. At first, you can proceed along a relatively relaxing trail until you reach Holen.

Just before arriving at Montan, you'll pass by the Elsenhof farmstead and the impressive Enn Castle. Then, continue via the "Wine Forest Water" Trail to the center of the village of Montan, famed for its Pinot Noir, at an elevation of 500 meters above sea-level. This is the end of the route.

    Venosta Valley High Mountain Trail
    Schlanders/Silandro, Vinschgau/Val Venosta

    The Val Venosta Alpine Ridgeway (Vinschger Höhenweg) in the Lower Vinschgau valley, from Stava/Staben to the source of the Etsch river at the Reschen Pass where three countries meet, is a true experience for passionate hikers. The stretch totals 108 km and follows existing and new footpaths, paths alongside "Waale" (historic irrigation canals) and connecting roads between farms.

    The Alpine Ridgeway unites various stages that can be hiked as part of a multi-day tour or as a one-day excursion. The individual stages are easily accessible via access points in the villages in the valley. In order to help hikers keep their bearings, the entire Alpine Ridgeway is marked with a uniform red logo.

    It is a truly remarkable experience to hike through the species-rich vegetation and impressive world of nature that could not be more filled with contrast. The trails on the Sonnenberg mountain feature diverse vegetation such as steppe grass and herbs. They also offer exciting views of the highest mountains in South Tyrol and the fertile valley below.

    The best time for the hike is from April to October, although one should be aware that it can be very hot in summer.

    Tip: special rates for the Val Venosta Alpine Ridgeway are available (B&B including luggage transport, hiking map of the ridgeway, return transport to the starting point).

    Via Alpina
    Rasen-Antholz/Rasun Anterselva, Dolomites Region Kronplatz/Plan de Corones

    Since 2002 the Via Alpina has been winding from Trieste (Italy) to Monaco, from the Adriatic sea to the Mediterranean, its 5000 kilometres of walking tracks marked out into 5 trails through eight European countries: Slovenia, Italy, Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, France and the Principality of Monaco.

    The Via Alpina also crosses the Antholz Valley: 

    The stage starts from St. Martin in Gsies, leading to the innermost part of the Karbachtal valley and then over into the Antholz valley. Follow the Karbach and Hundsbach streams to reach the Ochsenfelder meadows. Track 42 leads over the Grüblscharte (2,394m) to the Grüblalm hut in Antholz. From there, take woodland trail 9 or 1 to Anhtholz Mittertal, the stage destination at approx. 1,250 m.

    From Antholz Mittertal (1,240m), the trail first of all heads uphill through woodland below the wild precipices of the Magerstein and winds in numerous hairpin bends up the steep debris-strewn slopes until reaching a small, secured section through a glacier trough and soon afterwards the Rieserfernerhütte hut (2,792m).

    Multi-day Hike - Alpine Pearls
    Deutschnofen/Nova Ponente, Dolomites Region Eggental

    The hike “Perlenweg” links the four villages Nova Ponente (Deutschnofen), Nova Levante (Welschnofen), Collepietra (Steinegg) and Tires (Tiers). Those surround the mountains Rosengarten and Latemar. They are part of the Dolomites and count to the UNESCO World Heritage Site.   

    Among 80 km (49miles), divided into 5 stages, for each considering 1 day, this hike allows an insight in this breathtaking area.

    The Perlenweg is very attractive for professionals or for free time hikers. Easily it can be chosen the level of difficulty. There are few possibilities to take public transport and stops in the traditional hovels. The curiosity of this hike is that it can be mounted from both directions.

    This challenging hike begins from the Jochgrimm. You then have to master approx. 500 meters of altitude-differential until you come to the Schwarzhorn (2,439 meters above sea-level).

    The "2 Täler Trail" starts in Hopfgarten in Defereggen, heads along the Staller Saddle mountain pass and ends in Niederrasen in the Antholzertal Valley. Six daily stages spanning a total of 90 kilometres lie in store for hikers. This trail is the middle ground between a high-alpine long-distance trail and a monotonous valley hiking path. It snakes along the middle altitudinal zone between high-alpine terrain and valley floors. Hikers can enjoy the unique views of the valley’s villages and the snow-capped mountain peaks as they forge their way across the Lasörling Group, Villgraten Mountains and the three-thousanders in the Rieserferner Group. Metaphorically speaking, this entire route is a balcony to the Alps. At the end of each daily stage, hikers reach a village where they have the option of staying in a guest house, an inn or a hotel.

    On the tracks of A. Dürer: The Dürer path
    Neumarkt/Egna, The South Tyrolean Wine Road

    This walk has been named after the important German painter Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528). During his first trip to Venice, in 1494, due to a flood in the Adige Valley, he had to make a detour through Pochi di Salorno to the Val di Cembra. It is delightful to follow the historical trail through these enchanted woods. We can walk past the Pochi di Salorno mill, past the earth pyramids and the Segonzano Castle, which Dürer immortalized in his paintings.
