A pleasant hike on easy forest trail in direction south to Cortaccia/Kurtatsch. It's worth to make a litte stop at the romanesque church of St. Jakob.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Rathausplatz (main square) on the Schneckenthaler street up to St. Jakob. A quick detour to the beautiful Romanesque church of S. Giacomo is worth it. After viewing the centaurs, sciapods and other frescos, continue in a northerly direction. After a few metres the first signpost directs hikers to the Kastelazweg trail. The first few metres of the trail are steep, but soon the trail continues on a lovely, relatively flat forest road through pine and deciduous forest to Cortaccia/Kurtatsch. There are plenty of benches on the way offering beautiful views of Termeno/Tramin.

It is recommended to return on a paved panoramic road (hardly used by cars) via Ronchi/Rungg, the southernmost district of Termeno. There are a few refreshment stops along the way for thirsty hikers.

Those who already know the church of St Jakob may follow the Kastelazweg trail earlier by turning left off Schneckenthaler street after the St. Anna retirement home towards the forest.
