The Algund irrigation channel pathway, or Waalweg, is a 10 km long path running alongside the old irrigation channel. Flat and even almost all the way, the trail boasts incredible views over the Meran/o area and leads you through Plars, Algund/Lagundo village and Gratsch/Quarazze until you get to the Saint Magdalena Chapel and then along the Tappeiner path to Meran/o city.

Leichte Tour durch Apfel und Weinberge, immer mit freiem Blick ins Tal. Ab dem Waalweg immer in Begleitung des Waales - Wasserlauf. Einkehrmöglichkeiten beim Unterwegner und Kaffee Konrad. Zum Abschluss in die Therme zum Entspannen und dann mit dem Bus 213 zurück nach Patschins

Oberhalb der Weinberge am Waldrand entlang mit ständigem Ausblick. Nach gut der Hälfte der Strecke ändert sich der Wegcharakter plötzlich, wenn man auf den Panoramaweg oberhalb von Meran trifft.
