The Sonnensteig Trail

The Theme Trail in Upper Venosta Valley

The popular Sonnensteig Trail runs from Burgusio/Burgeis to Spondigna/Spondinig, forming part of the thematic trails in Upper Venosta Valley. Along the way, hikers learn about the history, the Romanesque church of St. Benedict and of the characteristic irrigation channel paths. They also learn something of the local mythology and the local flora and fauna inhabiting the valley, with its special microclimate.

The Sonnensteig Trail begins at the western outskirts of Burgusio and leads past the Monte Maria Abbey. It passes the Oberwaal Trail and leads up to the archaeological prehistoric site of Ganglegg. This unchallenging hiking trip ends at the train station of Spondigna/Spondinig.
