This extended circuit along the Archeopfad Archaeological Trail leads from Brixen/Bressanone through the vineyards and fruit farms to the Natz-Schabs/Naz-Sciaves plateau, covered in apple orchards. Passing two natural biotopes, the scenic trail runs from the northernmost vineyards in South Tyrol as far as the Augustinian Canons Monastery of Neustift/Novacella before returning to Brixen. This all-encompassing trail passes through some of the most beautiful cultural landscapes in South Tyrol.

Turn-by-turn directions

The Eisacktal Valley Wine and Apple Trail (in German: Wein und Apfelweg) starts in the old quarter of Brixen. From the old lanes of Stufels/Stufles, follow the Wine Route along trail no. 10 to the sun-kissed vineyards above the town. After a 30 min hike, continue along trail no. 1 through the apple orchards on mostly even ground to Elvas. As it crosses the forest, the path gently rises and falls. Pass a few buildings that belonged to disused military barracks, before reaching the village of Natz. From Natz, the Apple Trail runs north before arriving at a viewing platform overlooking the deep Rienzschlucht gorge. Turn west and follow the trail to the settlement of Viums/Fiumes. Go past the next village and through the Sommersürs biotope. After the Flötscher Weiher pond the trail leads to Raas/Rasa.

Follow the gentle downhill path through the vineyards for about half an hour until you reach the Neustift Augustinian Canons Monastery. Follow the trail to the left of the Eisack river all the way back to Stufels.
