Irrigation Channel Paths in Upper Venosta Valley

Hiking Along Old Irrigation Channel Paths in Upper Venosta Valley

Waalwege is the German name for the characteristic hiking trails in the Venosta Valley, which run without significant inclines along the hill at the foot of the high mountains. They are the paths along which run along the narrow water channels, that were dug many centuries ago and were used to irrigate the fields until the 19th century. Today, the irrigation channel paths are among the most popular hiking trails in South Tyrol.

The paths are popular hiking trails for families, moderate hikers and everyone who wishes to enjoy the unique flora and fauna in the entire valley. There used to be 300 irrigation channels in the Upper Venosta Valley but today, only a dozen of these are still accessible, including the Leitenwaal, Bergwaal or Mitterwaal. These trails are accessible all year round and offer great views of the surrounding mountain ranges.

Note:
The narrow paths are not suitable for cyclists.
