Stop for a moment here to admire the lovely panorama and fine views of the Vinschgau valley and up into the Schnalstal, the Senales valley, to the place where Ötzi, the Ice Man, was found, fascinating Juval Castle where world-famous mountaineer Reinhold Messner and his family live or downwards towards the charming, ancient little valley church dedicated to St. Procolo.
Cuple rocks, a witch’s cave, the devil’s stone … a mysterious journey for children and adults through the sites of ancient cults.

Along the way notice boards provide information on the landscape, the wine, the restaurants and other food outlets, and the local wineries.
The 2.5 hour long hike can also be undertaken in sections and in both directions.
The Chestnut trail in Foiana is an easy walk suitable both for adults and children who love to discover the great outdoors on foot.
To highlight the importance of these plants and to bring the chestnut to both the locals and the tourists, the Kastanienerlebnisweg was created in cooperation between the Forest Inspectorate of Merano and the municipality of Lana. On a length of about two kilometers, everything worth knowing about the sweet chestnut is conveyed on the basis of stations and information boards. The individual panels tell of the wood of the tree, of the diseases affecting the chestnut, of the biodiversity, the conditions for good growth and much more. Hikers can look forward to ten interactive stations that always deal with the chestnut.
