Martin Hauser shares the route to his workplace with hiking fans and culture vultures. A narrow path leads along a vertical rock face, which is not accessible to machinery, and on to the mediaeval chapel of St. Ägidius in Vinschgau, South Tyrol. The larger-than-life fresco painting of Saint Christopher on the southern facade dates from around 1330. And directly below: the stone entrance - almost a gateway - to Hauser’s apple orchard. Weeds are pulled out by hand and the apples are transported on a rickety handcart along the path into the valley after harvesting.
