Algund and its "7 Dwarfs"

Algund and its "7 Dwarfs"

The garden village consists of several different types of districts

Anyone who has ever spent a holiday in Algund near Merano knows that the village has many different locations to offer. Down in the valley near the village centre. In the midst of idyllic vineyards and orchards. Right next to a castle. Directly on the Merano High Mountain Trail. Or up on the mountain. Here you are spoilt for choice - but we promise you that there is a suitable district for everyone! Because just as the 7 dwarfs, each of the seven districts of Algund has its very own special character.


Hardly anyone knows the village centre of Algund by the name of Mühlbach, but due to its ideal location in the valley basin, it grew into a central meeting place early on. Here guests and locals meet for a cappuccino in the shade of the 70-metre-high church tower. The village square and the hustle and bustle are always in sight. There are many small shops to stroll around and cosy places to sit and relax. The tourist office and the information centre on the subject of mountains and hiking are always worth a stop as well.

Algund village

This district is situated directly on the debris cone of the Grabbach River and thus offers a magnificent view of Merano, the Adige Valley and even as far as Bolzano. The "flagship" of Algund village is certainly the well-known Algunder Waalweg, the irrigation channel path which runs directly above the village. Moreover, it is here that the picturesque passage between the foothills of the Texel Group and the Merano valley basin is located. Perfect for exploring the Alpine-Mediterranean flora.


This district is situated on the sunny debris cone of the Töll engrave, northwest of Mühlbach. Mitterplars is known for its valley station of the chairlift, which takes you to Vellau in a few minutes. But the Algunder Waalweg Trail leads through vineyards and orchards to Algund village as well. So, you are very close to both the Merano High Mountain Trail and the valley basin.


The Algund "box seat" is called Oberplars - the district is situated directly above the Algunder Waalweg Trail and offers a dreamlike view of the spa town of Merano and the Adige Valley. Especially those who love peace and quiet will enjoy the sunny location in the midst of orchards and a bit away from everyday noise. Oberplars is also an ideal starting point for beautiful circular walks.


Vellau is the sunny "panoramic district" of Algund, because here you can enjoy a unique view over the Adige Valley, the Dolomites in the east and the Ortles group in the west. The nostalgic gondola basket lift, which glides in the direction of the Merano High Mountain Trail and the Leiter Alm hut, also starts from here. An experience of a very special kind. A 5 km long and well laid out mountain road connects Vellau with the centre of Algund and a chairlift with Mitterplars.


Forst is a familiar term to us in South Tyrol - and not only to beer lovers. Because here, in this district of Algund, you will find the Forst special beer brewery, which is one of the most modern breweries in Europe. Forst is the southernmost part of Algund and, apart from a road bridge, is only connected to the village centre by a wooden footbridge. Forst Castle, one of the many castles in the area, is enthroned here as well.


Small but nice - that is the village of Aschbach, which is situated at 1,360 metres southwest of Algund. It can be reached via a forest road from Töll or with the modern panoramic cable car from Rabland. Due to its favourable climatic location on the Nördersberg mountain, Aschbach is a popular excursion destination for guests and locals, especially in the warm season. Two highlights await you here: the Vigljoch, which can also be reached from Lana, and the Naturnser Alm hut... both ideal destinations for hikers and bikers.
