Starting point of the hike is the Widmann bridge in Brixen. Shortly along the O. von Guggenberg Street, turn right and on the Plattenweg path (marking 6) uphill to Cornale. Continue along the Via Crucis to San Andrea at the parish church of the same name. On the San Andrea loop trail the hike leads in a southerly direction to Meluno di Sopra and Cleran. From here take trail no. 8 down to Millan. On the Karlspromenade promenade descend to the Karlsburg residence and through the Plose path back to the starting point.

The little church of St. John the Baptist is located in Cornale and stands on a charming rounded hill. The Martyrdom of St. Ursula, which dates back to the Renaissance (c. 1520), is of excellent artistic quality.

The parish church of S. Andrea was first mentioned in 1177. Its late Gothic renovation around 1485 with presbytery and bell tower is still characteristic.

In Cleran the little church of S. Nicolò impresses the visitor with its rich late Gothic ornamental frescoes. The cycle of the Passion of Christ is a pictorial jewel of excellent quality.

The pilgrimage church of "Maria am Sand" with its depiction of the Madonna is the old parish church of Millan and dates back to the 14th century.
