The starting point for the vineyard trail is in the center of Bressanone/Brixen (refreshments available) at the Adlerbrücke. Follow trail no. 1 through the Stufels district, first via Kranebitt (refreshments available) up to Elvas (refreshments available). Here continue through the Mooswald forest to the Raiermoos biotope and on trail no. 6 via Hochrain to the Strasserhof farm (refreshments available in autumn). Continue on trail no. 4 between vineyards and the typical dry stone walls down to the well-known Neustift monastery (refreshments available). From here head south on trail no. 16 back to Bressanone/Brixen. There is no shortage of places to stop along the way, especially in the fall it is charming to visit one of the rustic Buschenschänke.
The vineyard path is easy to walk and also brisk, much worth seeing transforms this hike, but without further ado into a day trip. Already at the starting point, the narrow medieval streets of Stufels are fascinating. Once you have conquered the first meters of altitude, you can enjoy a magnificent view over the Bressanone basin from the Wetterkreuz near Elvas. Nature lovers will be delighted by the diversity of the Raiermoos biotope, as well as the centuries-old vineyards on the slopes above Neustift. Wines from these same vineyards can also be tasted directly at the Neustift monastery before heading back towards Brixen.
