THE LOVELY WATER IRRIGATION CHANNEL WALKS (Waalwege) IN ALGUND

Everything flows... you can feel the water’s energy in every step as you stroll along the lovingly installed, age-old man-made South Tyrolean waterways.  Even today, these channels are still used to direct water to the local orchards and vineyards.   They have also become popular routes for walking and hiking.

Waterways in Algund

The water irrigation paths form a particularly impressive part of your hiking holiday in Burggrafenamt in southern Tyrol. Metaphorically speaking, you have not only set out on the sunny side of life. The lush vegetation provides welcome shade on hot days and the landlords and landladies of the inns and guesthouses along the route serve the best the region has to offer. The almost even irrigation paths in Algund with their magnificent views of the Meran landscape are amongst the best known panoramic routes in South Tyrol. Moreover, along the Meran ridgeways, you will keep finding different steps, side by side with joyfully flowing water channels.
