Excursion from the center of Algund to one of the most beautiful viewing lodges in Burgraviato.
As the name suggests: Ebeneich, an old farmstead, is located on a somewhat flatter, flat shoulder of land on the steep mountain slope that rises in the back of Algund towards the Mutspitze and the almost three-thousand-meter peak Tschigot (2998 m). Back in the 14th century a farm was already mentioned here. By dividing the farm in more recent times, an excursion inn with a large panoramic terrace was created. This place now has one of the most beautiful views in Burggrafenamt! The view over the Merano basin, the Adige valley and the distant mountains almost literally takes your breath away!
The hike starts opposite the cemetery in Algund/Lagundo and takes you along trail no. 25B to the Grabbach stream. Follow the Grabbachweg trail no. 25 up to the Blumenthalerhof farm and then the bends to the Gasthaus Ebeneich restaurant. Continue through orchards to the Birbamegg Hof farm and finally through the forest until Vellau/Velloi with the idyllic mountain church, the highest point of the hike. For the descent, go westwards to the mountain station of the chairlift to Vellau/Velloi and then down along the Saxnerweg trail until you reach the Oberplars Waalweg canal trail no. 21B. Continue eastwards along the canal trail, cross the road to Vellau/Velloi and follow trail no. 21 past the Schlundenstein, a large rock from the Ice Age, until the Leiter am Waal restaurant. Proceed eastwards along the Algund Waalweg canal trail until Café Konrad. Then take the Burgweg trail no. 20 to reach the valley station of the chairlift to Vellau/Velloi in Mitterplars/Plars di Mezzo and descend to the centre of Algund/Lagundo.
