The trail to the Barbiano Waterfalls starts in the centre of the village of Barbiano/Barbian (refreshments available). The Waterfall Trail (Wasserfallweg) first goes to the lower falls and then to the upper falls. Then you follow trail no. 34 and 27 to the Briol inn (refreshments available). Continue to Tre Chiese (refreshments available) on trail no. 4. The route back to Barbiano takes you first along trail no. 6, which then branches off into trail no. 3. Follow the Dorfstraße road to where you started.

It goes without saying that the highlight of this hike is the spectacular Barbiano waterfalls, which plunge in several cascades over a total drop of 200 m. But there are also other interesting things to see along the way, such as the leaning tower of the church in Barbiano.

Anyone with an interest in architecture will love the Briol inn, which is an amazing example of Bauhaus style right in the heart of the Alps. The artist Hubert Lanzinger transformed a former refuge here into a complete work of art in which you can stay and dine.

We must also mention Tre Chiese, a fascinating collection of buildings constructed on the site of an ancient sacred spring.
