This walk dedicated to the minstrel Walther von der Vogelweide runs between Laion, Novale and Albions. In the future there will be information boards placed at specific points along the route, on the life and work of this minstrel, to pass on this information to those walking through this beautiful landscape. There are several opportunities for resting along the route.

Turn-by-turn directions

At the sports area in Laion (1,085m) route no. 5 offers a lovely walk descending slightly northward through meadows to Albions (857m, refreshments served). Turning south, follow the road to Hof Mair am Bach farm and there, take the signposted field path (Vogelweider Rundweg signs – trail is also called “Eselsteig”). Starting off in fields, the trail continues as a longer stretch through forest paths, then you will reach the hamlet of Novale (Ried, 740m; törggele tavern open in Fall) with St. Katharina Kirche church and the Vogelweider Hof farm (810m). Now follow route no. 35, which ascends alongside the farmsteads on the sunny slopes, after crossing an asphalt road, and leads to Laion.
