The Algund Waalweg canal trail

The Algund Waalweg canal trail

One of the most beautiful canal trails in the region of Merano

The Algunder Waalweg meanders leisurely and almost completely flat along the quietly murmuring watercourse, past vines and mixed forests, through whose leaves the sun's rays fall picturesquely onto the path. As one of the most beautiful canal trails in Merano and Environs, it not only enchants with its fairytale nature, but also with far-reaching views of the garden village of Algund, Merano and the Etschtal Valley. The Algund Waalweg canal trail starts at the Töllgraben bridge below the district of Plars and leads all the way to Merano. Once in the Merano district of Gratsch, it is possible to continue the approximately one and a half hour hike on the Tappeinerweg trail to the centre of the spa town of Merano.

Walking along the Waalweg canal trail to Merano: a piece of cake!

The Algund Waalweg canal trail is also one of the Waalweg canal trails in South Tyrol that is suitable for families with pushchairs and walkers of all ages thanks to its width and few bumps. Along the way, there are wooden benches and rest areas that invite you to take in the natural surroundings. Past well-tended apple orchards and lush vineyards, the route always leads towards the spa town - or back to Algund. The garden village of Algund and the spa town of Merano are simply close to each other - not just figuratively, but also literally: you can walk from Algund to the centre of Merano in just 1.5 hours along a flat path.
