Pleasant circular hike from Dorf Tirol along the approx. 6 km-long Algunder Waalweg (irrigation channel path) and St. Peter. The route mainly passes alongside vineyards and offers fabulous views of the Etschtal Valley and Dorf Tirol.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the centre of the village of Dorf Tirol (tourist information association) the route heads down the main street as far as the mini golf course. From here the Keschtngasse branches off from the main street; follow this road until it joins Gnaidweg. Continue to the right along Gnaidweg to the Thurner Schlössl castle. There turn right and head uphill for approx. 200 m along Thurnsteinstrasse. The suspension bridge on the left-hand side marks the entrance to the irrigation channel path. Hike along this path to the end. Turn round and follow the same route until the fork near the Grabbach.

At the Grabbach turn left and follow the path to the turn-off towards St. Peter. Turn off onto the Ochstentodweg trail towards St. Peter.
From there the route leads to St. Peter and then back to the starting point in the centre of Dorf Tirol via Tirol Castle.
