When Albrecht Dürer travelled to Italy in 1494, the Valle dell’Adige valley was still a swampy impassable area. So he had to follow - as usual at that time - the trail leading to the Passo del Sauch and further on into the Val di Cembra valley in order to reach the town of Trento.
Nowadays this 35 km long path is a popular hiking route overcoming a total of 1,450 metres of altitude difference ascending and 850 metres descending. The whole tour has to be split thus into several days. We introduce you to two stages of the path: the first one leading from Laghetti near Egna to Pochi and the stage from Pochi to the Holy Lake in the Val di Cembra in the Trentino.
