Hiking enjoyment

draw new strength & energy from the quiet wisdom of nature

Algund is the ideal starting point to experience the variety of hiking possibilities in South Tyrol: from enjoyable walks to mountain and alpine trail tours to hikes of all levels of difficulty.

Walks with panoramic view

Along the old irrigation ditches dating back to Roman times, you can enjoy wonderful panoramic views of the Meran countryside on the 6 km long Algunder Waalweg trail during an easy walk along idyllic vineyard hills. The well-known Algunder Waalweg, only a few minutes away from our house, is one of the most beautiful panoramic hiking trails in South Tyrol. There are also other Waal paths to discover nearby, such as the Marlinger Waalweg or the Partschinser Waalweg.

One of the most beautiful high-altitude promenades in Europe, the Tappeinerweg, leads from the sunny slopes of the Küchelberg to Gratsch and offers a magnificent view over the roofs of the city of Meran. Ideal for jogging and unwinding with a stroll.

Panoramic cableway Aschbach

Aschbach is a small mountain village at 1,360 metres above sea level, southwest of Algund. You can now reach it again with the modern Aschbach cable car from Rabland. Guests from Algund can ride the new cable car to lofty heights of 1,342 metres free of charge upon presentation of the Algund Card Plus! Aschbach is the ideal starting point for bikers and hikers to the dreamlike high plateau of Vigljoch.

Mountain and high-altitude hikes

Not only leisure hikers, but also mountain sports enthusiasts get their money’s worth around Merano. One popular hiking route is the Merano High Altitude Trail. Algund is located on the south side of the Merano High-Altitude Trail and offers a particularly enjoyable access to this high alpine panoramic trail in the Texel Group Nature Park: from the district of Vellau, a nostalgic basket lift leads up to the Leiter Alm at an altitude of 1,550 metres. Numerous high-mountain tours through South Tyrol’s largest nature park start here.

The views of the impressive mountain peaks Tschigat (2,998 m), Mutspitze (2,294 m) and Matatzspitze (2,179 m) are breathtaking. Another highlight is the Partschins waterfall, which is one of the highest waterfalls in South Tyrol, as well as the Spronser Seen, the highest alpine lake plateau in South Tyrol with 10 mountain lakes at an altitude of 2,117 to 2,589 metres. In the process, you will repeatedly encounter mountain farms that are several centuries old and come into contact with a diverse alpine flora and fauna.
