There are various stations where visitors can learn lots about chestnuts. The Chestnut Experience Trail (Kastanienerlebnisweg) is especially recommended for families and those who like a gentle walk. Along the trail one can learn a lot about the tree's wood, its fruit and the various types of chestnut.

Parking is available next to the church in Foiana/Völlan or at the football ground. Follow the Propst-Wieser-Weg trail. After the sporting grounds a Keschtnigl, a spiky chestnut the size of a person, advertises the Chestnut Experience Trail.

Follow the signs past the Weinreichhof farm to the start of the Chestnut Experience Trail. The trail is designed to be easy and interesting for young and old. Ten stations, some of them interactive, await visitors on a hike through the chestnut trees where it is all about the precious fruit.

From the car park near the church approx. 700 m over the Probst-Wieser-Weg. After the sports field a huge "Keschtnigl" (chestnut hedgehog) draws the hiker's attention to the beginning of the path. Shortly after the Weinreichhof you reach the beginning of the adventure trail. The individual stations then already indicate the course of the hiking trail.
