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.
