The vineyards along the Algunder Waal and the Schlundensteinweg are a special example of a cultural landscape shaped by the diligence of farmers. On the Algund Wine Trail, the history of the cultural vineyard landscape comes to life and is tangible for hikers. The simple panels describe the Algunder Waal, the old grape varieties and the work of the vineyard watchman known as the Saltner. His job was to watch over the ripe harvest.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the dairy in Algund, take path 7 via Mitterplars - Castle Plars along the irrigation road. There, you will come to the start of the path 21, which leads you through the forest to the Schlundenstein (large rock from the Ice Age). Turn right and make your way to Cafè Konrad (path 26 A). Now walk a few meters on the asphalted road towards Algund until the castle path 20 branches off to the right. This wide paved path above Algund now leads us back to the valley station of the chairlift to Vellau. From there, take the sidewalk to Algund back to the village centre.
