A leisurely hike that promises a wonderful view of the Merano region.
The Burgweg begins at the valley terminal of the Vellau lift facilities in Mitterplars and crosses the Grabbach after a slight ascent, leading you to the Blumenthalerhof.
After the surfaced Ochsentodweg, the path runs almost flat to Castle Thurnstein and ascends via St. Peter to Castle Tyrol.
Return journey: steep descent via the Brunnenburg or via Dorf Tirol (Gnaidweg) to Gratsch, Algund.
Via the Adige Valley, take the MeBo expressway to the Algund exit.
Coming from Vinschgau, Algund is just before Merano.
