One of the largest and most important South Tyrolean Waale
Popular hiking route in the Merano area

From the fountain square in Obermais (370 m), where you enter the signposted and unmistakable Waalweg, first follow the Virgilstra;e and then the Pflanzensteinstra;e through orchards to the Sonnwendhof, on the Waalweg, which is secured by railings, a little later across the rocky slopes of a gorge-like ditch; then on the now always good Waalweg trail, mostly through tree cover, largely flat to the well-known Waalerhaus, partly through meadows and orchards to the Torgglerhof (inn in the wide, large valley floor) and on its access road, soon crossing the Passer, to Saltaus (490 m); from the starting point 2–2:30 hrs. Return to the starting point: The best way is to take the bus, which runs several times a day between Saltaus and Obermais/Meran.
