Chestnut and Wine Route in Tyrol


Chestnut and Wine Route in Tyrol
Northern Italy Italy
South of the Alps and in the shadow of the Dolomites you will hike through some of the prettiest parts of South Tyrol, the main part of the tour is between the cultural capital of Tyrol, Bressanone, and the provincial capital of Bolzano, linking the northern Tyrolean and Southern Italian cultures. The first part of the walk goes down the Chestnut Path (Keschtnweg) before presenting you a vista of the beautiful plateau south of the Dolomites above Bolzano. You pass close to the village of Renon, the “in” summer place for the rich from the Capital city’s residents.

Vineyards and orchards line the way on the hike through one of the most beautiful areas located in the center of the South Tyrolean wine region.

Lake Kalterer See, the most famous lake in South Tyrol, is a further highlight on this route. Castles, palaces and manor houses emboss the landscape of the South Tyrolean Wine Route where numerous wineries avail a tasting of superb wines. The excellent cuisine and the amazing panorama create an unforgettable experience.

This hike runs along well-marked paths that are mainly signposted around the meadows and throughout the forests. The Dolomites are always in view and the paths offer no element of danger. You can use public transport on some of the routes to shorten the journey.
