Details about a hiking holiday in the Vinschgau

The Eurohike hiking tour takes you from Mals via Schulderns to Burgeis and St. Valentin through the enchanting South Tyrol. Every day something new, another exciting natural backdrop is waiting to be discovered by you. In addition to blooming alpine pastures, inviting huts and an impressive glacier world, the crystal-clear mountain lakes sparkle.

Simple switch off your thoughts and become one with nature. The here and now counts on this hiking trip and you should enjoy it to the fullest.

The highlights of the hiking trip in the beautiful Vinschgau

  • Unique and famous – the Churburg: It is one of the best-preserved medieval castles in South Tyrol and houses impressive panelling, fireplaces and other cultural assets inside.
  • 360-degree platform on the Tellajoch: One step, and the mighty mountains of Taufers open up in front of you. The platform at the Tellajoch offers a unique all-round view and never ceases to amaze.
  • Tasting Vinschgau delicacies: Whether typical flatbread, hearty mountain cheese or traditional speck: the best delicacies of the region are served at the Sesvenna hut.

Useful information about the hiking trip in the Vinschgau

What do I pack? Sturdy shoes won’t go wrong on the route through the beautiful Vinschgau. During the eight days you always hike on well-developed paths, but you have to factor in longer climbs and walking times of up to five hours. Therefore, you should have a good physical condition and a few (training) kilometres behind you.

If the legs do give up, individual stages can be shortened by bus or train.

Have you already fallen in love with the South Tyrolean Vinschgau Valley and can’t wait to start your hiking trip: Then book yourself happy now!

Itinerary

Discover the alleyways of this tranquil Vinschgau market town and marvel at the numerous towers in the sunniest place of South Tyrol.

Hotel example: Zum Hirschen

Along the most beautiful Waalweg-paths you ascend into the mountaineers‘ village Matsch, gurgling watercourses accompany your route. Via the old castle ruin and the boldly laid out ‚Leitenwaal‘ you reach the prehistoric excavation site Ganglegg. In the afternoon the pretty village of Schluderns welcomes you with its proud Churburg castle, one of the best-preserved castles in South Tyrol.

After a visit to Glurns, the smallest town in the Alps, you ascend high up into the ‚Stilfserjoch‘ national park. Past the nature experience ‚Wooden-Xylophone‘ you walk through the primal fir tree forest and reach the idyllic mountain village of Taufers, the Romanic ‚Haufendorf‘ is characterized by houses huddling densely together along the steeply rising mountain sides. Today you are less than a kilometer away from the Swiss state border, a short hike takes you to the neighbouring country and the famous UNESCO monastery Müstair.

Today the queen’s stage of your hiking week awaits. Past traditional mountain farms you ascend to the ridge Tellajoch, where an impressive mountain world reveals itself to you with a panoramic view on the 360°-viewing platform. The descent leads you down to Schlinig, from there a short bus ride takes you to Burgeis. For a shorter tour to Burgeis we recommend the so-called ‚Stundenweg‘ via the hamlet Schleis.

Enjoy a relaxing day of rest or embark on a beautiful loop tour past the Schliniger Alp to a roaring waterfall. Situated amidst some of the highest mountain giants, only a stone’s throw away from the Swiss border, the quaint hut ‚Sesvenna Hütte‘ awaits and tempts you to take a break. Extensively explore the adventure path Watles, before gliding leisurely by cable car back down into the valley.

From Prämajur through shady forests all the way to the Brugger-alp, where we highly recommend you sample traditional Vinschgau delicacies.

Across the largest alluvial fan of the Alps, the ‚Malser Haide‘, you proceed across blooming meadows and past sleepy farm houses uphill into the little mountain village of Planeil.

Tour character

You always walk on well-maintained hiking paths, along the typical Waalwege-paths and in parts also on forest roads. For the in parts longer ascents and walking times of up to 6.5 hours a good basic fitness level is recommended. The ‚Königsetappe‘-stage on Day 4 can be cut short if needed, for nearly all longer tours there are always options available to cut the route short by bus/train.

Erlebnisreiche Wanderung.
Wir waren zu viert. Der Routenverlauf war gut geplant. Die Unterkünfte waren gut gewählt. Besonders bleibt das Hotel Saldur in bester Erinnerung. Sinnvoll wäre, das Wanderangebot mit Halbpension anbieten zu können.

Sehr schöne Wanderreise im Vinschgau
Am schönsten waren die Waalwanderwege.

Einmalige Bergerlebnisse mit tollen Weitblicken und Rundumsichten verbunden mit schönen Dörfern und Kulturstätten.
Bis auf eine Ausnahme gut geschnittene Etappen für den "normalen" Bergwanderer". Die Königsetappe am 4. Tag ist unserer Meinung nach für den durchschnittlichen Bergwanderer nicht zu schaffen, ohne Unterstützung zu Beginn der Etappe. Als Option ist in den Reiseunterlagen angemerkt, dass an bestimmten Tagen mit einem Wanderbus die ersten 500 Höhenmeter überwunden werden können. Den Bus scheint es wohl nicht mehr zu geben. Die angegebene Rufnummer für ein Wandertaxi ist nicht mehr gültig. Ein Wandertaxi kann im Vorfeld über die Tourismuszentrale in Mals gebucht werden. Uns hat letztendlich der Wirt vom Hotel Chavalatsch den Transfer zur Eggalm organisiert. Somit ist die sehr schöne Etappe im Hochgebirge dann für uns möglich geworden. Ein Hinweis noch zu dieser Etappe: Die Laatscher Alm ist bewirtschaftet und lädt zur Rast. Positiv anzumerken sind die in den aktuellen Informationen zur Tour aufgeführten sehr gut funktionierende Busverbindungen für jeden Tag. Wir haben diese mehrfach genutzt: Z.B. zur Verkürzung der Tour am ersten Tag und wir Vom Bergdorf Matsch mit dem Bus zurückgefahren. Des weiteren haben wir wegen Regenwetter den Tourenverlauf an den letzten beiden Tagen abgeändert. Die Busverbindungen haben dies problemlos ermöglicht. Wir hatten eine Mischung von der einfachen Pension bis zum 4* Hotel. Jedes Haus hatte seinen Charme und überall aufgeschlossene und hilfsbereite Menschen. Wir, das ist eine Gruppe von 6 bergbegeisterten Herren im besten Alter :-)).

Wow!!
Der Name der Tour "Panoramawandern" verspricht auf jeden Fall nicht zu wenig. Denn auf jeder einzelnen Wanderetappen hat man einen atemberaubenden Panoramablick. Auch die urigen Almen haben uns sehr gut gefallen und das Essen ist wirklich lecker. Zusammengefasst ein sehr gelungener und wunderschöner Wanderurlaub im Vinschgau. Wir werden auf alle Fälle wieder kommen, denn Südtirol ist ein echtes Wanderparadies.
