From Klausen to Säben Monastery and on the Chestnut Path to Feldthurns

From the centre of Chiusa (panorama panel) you walk through narrow alleys and up stone steps to Branzoll Castle (mark 1). From there, the largely paved Way of the Cross leads up to the Säben monastery, which watches over the historic town of Klausen from a rocky hill, the Holy Mountain. The hiking trail leads through the monastery complex, whose old walls make you forget the outside world for a moment. The view into the valley is worthwhile. Continue on trail 1 up to Pardell. Here you reach a section of the Valle Isarco Chestnut Trail, which is henceforth signposted as the "Keschtnweg", via trail 3. Mostly flat on a wide path, through chestnut groves, vineyards and along field paths, you reach the centre of Feldthurns through the district of Pedratz. The village lies on the sunny western slopes of the Eisacktal and offers various places to stop for refreshments. Pay close attention to the signs on the way and don't lose sight of your destination (Feldthurns, 650 m) - the Chestnut Trail
