The Chestnut Trail, or "Keschtnweg", is known for its picturesque groves. This tour can also be done quite comfortably in two days.

At the Neustift monastery near Brixen, cross the bridge and take path “O” to Vahrn. At the parish church you meet the Keschtnweg - in its entire length, the trail leads from Lake Vahrn to the Ritten – which first leads along the Salernstraße. Then it goes over two farms up to the chapel of St. Cyrillus, to Pinzagen and on to Tötschling. In the direction of Feldthurns, the trail meets the road at the Wöhrmaurer country inn. The next day you hike to the Ansitz Ziernfeld and on to Velthurns Castle. Then you walk through the village to the large Moar zu Viersch farm, then to the Huber in Pardell and over the saddle to the Säben monastery. The descent is via the cobbled path to Klausen. The markings on this route change constantly, but the Keschtnweg is signposted throughout and is therefore easy to find.
