From Velthurns Castle, the Keschtnweg trail leads up to the Säben Monastery. During the Törggelen season this tour becomes a culinary experience.

The starting point of this circular tour is Velthurns Castle, which was built in the 16th century and served as a summer residence for the prince bishops of Brixen until the secularisation in 1803. It is well worth visiting the Renaissance interior with its panels, inlays, carved portals, windows and frescoes, as well as the local museum. We then leave Feldthurns on the „Keschtnweg“ which runs through the Eisacktal valley from Brixen to Ritten and leads through ancient chestnut groves and to historical sights. In the South Tyrolean dialect, the chestnuts are called „Keschtn“, which gave the path its name. Passing the Törggelehof Moar zu Viersch and the Pardell hut group, we finally reach the Säben monastery, which today is one of the oldest places of pilgrimage in the Südtirol region. After a tour we return to Pardell. From there we hike up to Verdings, where we can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view. A little below Verdings we follow the „Keschtnweg“ back to our starting point.
