Trail about the history and landscape of the Eisacktal. The first station is located in Bressanone at the former hospital Holy Spirit. The historical building is now a rest home. Along the route there are 24 information boards of various topics. Topics range from art and history to the nature and geology, but also curiosity about the history of the Brenner. Lake Varna is an ideal stopover on the way. The board 21 is dedicated to the Fortress of Fortezza. After a visit we continue towards the center of Fortezza, where we get information about the bunker del Vallo Alpino. The historical walk ends after 3-4 hours at the Via Claudia Augusta, which are still visible ruts of wagons, that 2,000 years ago crossed the border at the Brenner. By train back to Bressanone

Your path takes you from Brixen (Hartmannsplatz/Grosser Graben) north-boundm passing the Hospital and towards Varna, lake Varna and the Franzensfeste fortress. Historic points of interest at the bunker Nr. 3 at the Franzensfeste, as well as the Roman Road.
