A walk for nature lovers
The theme path that runs from Natz to Raas and back to the starting point provides insight into the natural beauty of the area. On various information boards along the way, you will learn things to know about the apple cultivation in Natz and the apple-producing region of South Tyrol.
The circular walk starts at the main square in Natz. Take a short walk along the road to Viums, then turn left on to a side path to the Sommersürs biotope. After the biotope, follow the Apfelweg sign up to the Flötscher pond. Continue on the way until you reach the first intersection. Here, cross the road and follow the Apple Trail along the Mesnerbühel hill in the direction of Raas, where you will reach the Raiermoos biotope with its fascinating flora and fauna. From here, the Apple Trail ascends to a large reservoir and from there to the main road to Natz. Follow the main road for a short while, then leave the road on a right turn. At the next intersection, turn left heading north, then turn sharp right. From here, the Kreuzweg path goes back to the starting point at the village center of Natz. Next to the Kreuzweg path you will also pass the Ölberg vantage point that invites hikers to become sun loungers and take a relaxing break.
