With its mild, Alpine-Mediterranean climate, Algund is the ideal starting point for many hiking trips into the South Tyrolean mountain world, e. g. the Texel Group or the Dolomites, the world's most fabulous mountain ranges. 

From 300 metres to 3,000 metres in altitude, South Tyrol offers various grades of difficulty for every hiker. Whether you want to stroll along one of the most beautiful hiking paths in South Tyrol, with great panoramic views (the Algund Irrigation Channel Path) or hike along Europe’s most stunning high-Alpine panoramic trails (the  Meran High Mountain Road), there is something for everyone.

The Algund Irrigation Channel Path runs on the flat just above the village of Algund and is ideal for anyone who is not too experienced in hiking. It leads into the famous Tappeiner Path, which in turn leads into the historic centre of the renowned spa town of Meran. Besides the local plants along the way, many exotic specimens can be found which grow very well in this particular climate.
If you are keen to go into higher mountain regions, you can walk along the Meran High Mountain Road in the Texel Group Nature Park. The flora and fauna in South Tyrol’s largest nature park, as well as the magnificent views of the World Heritage of the Dolomite mountains and the imposing glaciers of the Ortler massif are simply breath-taking.

One of the best hiking regions in the world are the Dolomites, not far from Algund. A trekking holiday in the South Tyrolean Dolomites is an adventure you'll never be able to forget.

Every Wednesday, our guided hiking tours lead you to the most beautiful places in the surrounding mountain world. The lift facilities of the garden village of Algund, such as the nostalgic basket lift to the Leiter Alm or the lift facility to Aschbach ensure, that not only well-trained Alpinists can reach the highest mountains – but that they are also available for you.
