Departure point:     
Directly from the hotel.

From the hotel first walk to Gasthaus Pichler (bottom station of the Taser cable car, also possible by bus). From there follow the Waalweg to St. Georgen, then on to the centre of Schenna and back to the hotel.

A hike along the Waalweg is always an experience. It leads along largely unspoilt, open water channels through coniferous and deciduous woods, beautiful chestnut stands and orchards. There are fine views over the Meran valley up to the Ultner mountains and the Texel group, with benches allowing you to take a rest. Water from the 8-km channel is still used to irrigate the orchards.
