Ortlsteig trail

General description

The sun, in the dialect "Sunn", is the all-determining force on the Vinschger Sonnenberg. It heats up the rocks and bathes the landscape in its golden light. Wonderful starting points alternate with curious, exciting and unexpected insights into the secrets of a sensitive balance of natural forces.

Route description

Follow the trail behind the rock  at Schlosswirt Juval. You will get to a forest road that takes you to the remains of the old, abandoned Stava irrigation channel. This section of the hike is secured with an iron bridge and offers a great view of Val Senales. You then reach the Unterortlhof wine-growing estate after a short hike. From there you can take the shuttle service back to Schlosswirt or to Stava where you can take the Val Venosta train
