360° Alta Val Venosta: Glorenza/Glurns - Tubre i.V.M./Taufers i.M.
The seventh stage of 360° Alta Val Venosta starts in Glorenza/Glurns, the smallest town in the alpine region and leads to the westernmost village in South Tyrol on the border to Switzerland.
Leaving Glorenza/Glurns, the smallest town in the Alps, the seventh stage of the circular hiking trail 360° Alta Val Venosta runs along a serpentine trail to the Mitterwaal irrigation channel path (without wather), ascent about 10 minutes. A wooden xylophone reminds with its soft tones of the onetime burbling of water of the irrigation channel. After then, the route continues on a path lined with ancient spruces and on to Tubre in Val Monastero/Taufers im Münstertal, a Romanesque clustered village. The 8-churches hiking trail is highly recommended, as well as an excursion across the border to the Rhaeto-Romanic Switzerland with the UNESCO World Heritage Site Convent of St. John.
