The Bachdammweg dam trail leads from Vipiteno southwards, along Eisackufer-Promenade with views of Sprechenstein Castle. At the mouth of the Pfitscher Bach stream in the Eisack river, the walk leads northwards to the community park in Prati. There you will find a Kneipp installation, a mini-golf course and an extensive and shaded children’s play park, with the Wiesenhof horse riding center also close by. This walk is suitable for strollers.
