Hike along the Oltradige Promenade

A pleasant and family-friendly promenade to the neighbouring village on the South Tyrolean Wine Road

This walk has been established along the former railway line of the Oltradige train and is therefore also called "Promenade alter Bahndamm". The 4 km long course is plain, asphalted and can be done without any difficulty. In S. Michele we walk past the St. Anna Church and follow the signpost no. 22. We traverse the bypass and walk above the Lavasontal valley, across a landscape of forest and vineyards. The view ranges from the forest of Monticolo to the Dolomites, the Corno Bianco and Nero. On various places, benches and games for kids were established. Also, but not only for this reason, the Promenade (Überetscher Spazierweg) is ideal for the whole family.

As the trail corresponds with the cycling track Appiano-Caldaro, also cyclists use this trail. Unfortunately not all the cyclists have regards for the pedestrians. However, due to the fact that the trail is rather wide, normally both can exert their activity. After a little more than half an hour, we can reach the tavern "Christl im Loch“, ideal for a freshening drink. Then we walk on to Caldaro. At the end of the road, there is a locomotive, remembering the period in which the Oltradige Train was in operation between Bolzano and Caldaro.
