Today we had planned to walk south from Vipiteno but the weather forecast for tomorrow was not good. We decided to take the train to Bressanone and do the beautiful walk south from there while the weather was good.
This walk heads into the hills with a steep climb from Bressanone and passes through forest and farm land high above the busy valley below.
The apple trees are all in flower.
In the middle of some apple orchards we found a vending machine with fresh apples, juice and dried fruit.
A tradition in the Tyrol is that of crucifixes erected along the roads.
We found a park bench with a wonderful view for our lunch.
Part of the walk was lined with ancient chestnut trees.
The walk stretches for just 15km but with the climbing took around 4 hours. In the mid afternoon, the Monastery of Sabiona, situated on a cliff behind Koster, came into view.
From there, a steep path takes you down to the pretty town of Kloster/Chiusa. It’s a beautiful day’s walk !
The walk in ‘Relive’
Gorgeous scenery, and those cows look so pretty and clean that I could almost have them in my lounge to sit on my sofa and watch TV with me!
