On the trail of the chestnuts
The Eisacktaler Keschtnweg (South Tyrolean dialect for "chestnut trail") runs from Vahrn near Brixen on the slopes of the Eisacktal to the heights of the Ritten and into the valley basin of Bolzano. In autumn, the Keschtnweg is a special kind of experience and fascinates with its different facets.

The Eisacktaler Keschtnweg, Südtiroler dialect for "Kastanienweg", runs through a single band of chestnut groves and stretches from Vahrn near Brixen along the slopes of the Eisacktal to the Rittner Hochplateau and down into the Bozner Talessel to the legendary Burg Runkelstein. An ideal route for the Keschtnweg, which is uniformly marked through colourful mixed forests, over mountain meadows and through imposing chestnut forests. It is precisely this diverse vegetation that gives the Keschtnweg its special scenic charm in every season. Along the way there are always restaurants and places to stay, and direct marketers offer a wide range of local products.
