Turn-by-turn directions

Already at the starting point at the St. Heinrich chapel in La Costa/Seit you can catch a glimpse of Laives/Leifers. To the left you can see the Montelargo/Breitenberg mountain, to the right the Monte di Mezzo/Mitterberg, behind which the wine villages of Appiano/Eppan and Caldaro/Kaltern lie. The hike to Castel Flavon begins on trail no. 3, which you follow until you change to trail no. 10A. This one will take you to Castel Flavon, a half-ruin near Bolzano. There is also a renowned restaurant inside the castle. From here you have a wonderful view of the city. To return back you have to take the same path.
