Whether with the whole family or for challenging hiking days – On the themed trails in and around Bruneck there is a lot more to discover while hiking in addition to a fascinating natural landscape.
Art forms nature
A
Art along the way

Art Along The Way shows that art and nature can indeed be in harmony and that they can even merge with one another. Extraordinary art objects have been incorporated into the picturesque backdrop of the Reischach hiking trails, which sometimes only the attentive hiker can discover.

The artworks were positioned by Ursula Pescoller herself in carefully selected places along the paths so that they are embedded in the idyll of the woods and merge with them.

Bunker No. 10

Today, Bunker no. 10 is privately owned and open for guided tours upon requests.

Four Churches Trail

The Four Churches Trail leads through the diverse natural and cultural landscape of the Pustertal plateau of the central mountain range. The churches of St Valentin in Greinwalden, St Cyriak in Pfalzen, St Nikolaus in Issing and St Johannes in Hasenried represent special signposts. These places of energy also offer spiritual impulses for the way ahead. It is also possible and worthwhile to walk individual sections.

The rocks tell a tale

Anyone who hikes through the surroundings of Pfalzen with their eyes open will be confronted again and again with the material of stone, and specifically in its most varied of forms.

The stones we encounter on this themed trail are ancient.

Passing through a gate, you arrive at the themed trail “The Rocks Tell a Tale”. It continues through the cultural landscape of Pfalzen with its different aspects and, at the end, leads back through the same gate to the starting point.

Into the green

In 1870 a group of dedicated Bruneck citizens founded the first town improvement society in Tyrol.  In 2020, on its 150th anniversary, a project was initiated – “1870 – Escape into the Green” – that examined the fascinating history and development of tourism in the region.

Eighteen permanent sites in and around Bruneck invite people to explore anew the town and its surroundings. Paths that were first created in the 19th century guide walkers to atmospheric vantage points.
