On the „Törggelesteig“ and the „Keschtnweg“ it goes through orchards, vineyards and chestnut woods from the Neustift monastery to the Vahrner See lake and back.

This scenic and culturally historic tour starts at the Neustift monastery. Here it is worthwhile to take a tour of the monastery grounds with its basilica, library, Gothic cloister and medieval wine cellar. We then hike along the Eisack river upstream to the Vahrner See lake. Here we stop for a swim and relax on the sunbathing lawn. South of the idyllic lake begins the Keschtnweg trail, which winds along the sunny slopes of the Eisack valley to Bolzano. We follow it until we reach the village of Vahrn. From there we take the Törggelesteig back to the Neustift monastery.
