The wine town
Little known and surprisingly, with just over 500ha of vineyards, the town of Bolzano is the third largest wine-growing community in South Tyrol.

The famous St. Magdalener is grown on about 40% of this area. This circular walk covers a wide ring of steep vineyards on the mountain slopes above the town of Bolzano. And it would be incomplete if we didn't also taste a glass. From the town hall square in Bolzano, the path leads through Laubengasse and Museumsstrasse to the Talferbrück. Before the bridge, turn right onto the Bolzano water wall promenade. Follow this to the northern end, then turn left across the St. Antonbrücke and follow the footpath (next to the cycle path) northwards to below Runkelstein Castle. This is also the start of the well-known Eisacktaler Keschtnweg trail, which this circular hike follows to the hamlet of Signat on the Ritten. Ascend to the castle and follow the Keschtnweg trail below the municipal winery. This leads uphill on a good path in serpentines through the forest to the village of St. Peter with its steep vineyards sloping towards the west. The Keschtnweg continues uphill to the left
