Apples at every turn
Educational hiking trail

The narrow road between the car park and the tourist office is called Aichweg, and this is exactly where the apple trail starts. Hike down the Aichweg to the Ruprechtskirche, then left up to the Lingweg and on to the former seminary. Then walk up to Auer Castle, where the return path already begins. Pass the Küglerhof farm to the Hochmuth cable car and down to the Falknerpromenade. Take this back to the starting point. The entire route is marked with signposts. Almost throughout the entire country, the apple accompanies us at every turn. In the meantime, the plantations reach far up into the Vinschgau Valley and into the rugged regions of the Puster Valley. New apple varieties have made cultivation possible even at higher altitudes. Nevertheless, we actually know quite little about this fruit, which we encounter again and again in South Tyrol. How many wagons of apples are actually produced, who owns the plantations, who works them and what happens to the apples after the harvest?
