Hike on the western slopes of the lower Valle Isarco (Eisacktal) Valley

Start at the central square in the village of Chiusa (Klausen), always following signposted Trail No.1 to Säben, up to Branzoll Castle. Continue on a broad brick trail to the castle, monastery and church of Säben (729 m, 45 minutes from Chiusa). From here, follow Trail No. 1 on the northern side, first downhill then slightly ascending, to Weiler Pardell Tavern. Take the trail marked 12, which leads uphill across a slope for quite a while. After passing a large farm yard called Moar zu Viersch, you will reach Velturna (Feldthurns) at 856 m; 2.5 hours total walking time. You can visit the castle, and return to Säben on the same trail. From there, take the Säben Promenade, which starts north of the rock atop which the castle is located, and follow signs for Chiusa on the left. Walking time from Velturno to Chiusa is another 2 hours.
