This round trip leads through Vertigen along the historic Partschins/Parcines irrigation canal path (Partschinser Waalweg). The path leads along the so-called Trail of Tales, which passes numerous prehistoric findings, cult places and locations related to witchcraft tales (information on the Trail of Tales is available at the local tourist offices). The path leads past several farms and inns and leads up to the top spot of this tour: the 97 m high Parcines waterfall.

Schöne abwechslungsreiche Tour. Anstieg im 1. Drittel der Wanderung. Ich würde sie mit mittlerer Schwierigkeit bewerten und es sollte mehr Zeit eingeplant werden. 3 Std. sind sportlich ..
