Description:
The Algund irrigation channel trail, or Waalweg, is a 6km long path running alongside the old irrigation channel. Flat and even almost all the way, the trail boasts incredible views over the Meran area and leads you through Plars, Algund village and Gratsch until you get to the Saint Magdalena Chapel and then along the Tappeiner path to Meran.

Tip:
This route is particularly beautiful in spring when the apple trees are in blossom. One very well-recommended rest stop is the Leiter am Waal restaurant, which has a wonderful terrace looking out over the irrigation channels and exceptionally good cuisine.
