From Völser Aicha to Prösels – Hiking tip
Farm landscapes – Völs am Schlern is comfortably located under the cover of the imposing rocky walls of this South Tyrolean symbol, while the numerous small villages of the municipality lie along the mountain slopes.
Völser Aicha settled, if we can say so, in the front line. Stolidly here the century old farms string together along the sunny slope and say hello over the deep Tierser valley towards Steinegg. As much steep as the valley goes down, so moderate and hiking friendly is the hill landscape towards North, Prösels, Ums and Völs. From Prösels Völser Aicha is divided only by the Aicha mountain, a crest of a hill or a small wavy high plateau.
So Völser Aicha is the starting point for long walks through the woods and the meadow landscape under the Schlern, whose imposing walls close the panoramic towards North-East. While the landscape towards South and West opens over the Eisack valley and the Rittner high plateau along the short round hike proposed by us.
And of course not to forget, the impressive Prösels castle. Unfortunately so late in the year no guided tours are offered. However upon phone agreement, groups are allowed to enter and this is actually a visit’s worth. For more information please click here. But also for those who do not visit the castle, the view of these castle walls is always very impressive.
Once back in Völser Aicha hungry hikers shall not starve, the local farm taverns are actually famous for their sense of hospitality and good food. But here as well, so late in the year a reservation is surely appreciated. Our special personal tip is the heritage-protected Fronthof, which is open only till the end of November.
