General description

Waalwege are paths along the ancient irrigation channels. The Algunder Waalweg Trail is split into two parts with a lenght of 5 to 6 km. The hike leads along an historical irrigation canal. The canal trail is almost flat. It is therefore ideal for older people or families with children. Hikers, young and old, will be rewarded with fantastic views of Lagundo/Algund as well as the entirety of Merano/Meran and the surrounding area.

Route description

The Algund Waalweg canal trail passes by Oberplars/Plars di Sopra and Mitterplars/Plars di Mezzo, two districts of Algund/Lagundo, and takes you to the scenically located old village of Algund/Lagundo. From there continue through beautiful vineyards to Gratsch/Quarazze, a district of Meran/Merano, where the hiking trail meets the road to St. Peter/San Pietro. There you have the possibility to prolong your tour for another 90 minutes by taking the Tappeinerweg trail to the centre of Meran/Merano. Return to the centre of Algund/Lagundo by taking the city bus Algund/Lagundo 237, the bus to Vellau/Velloi 235 or the bus to Partschins/Parcines 213.
