Destination of the tour
The starting point of the hike on the chestnut trailis the Wöhrmaurer, an inn on the outskirts of Feldthurns. Follow trail no. 11 on a level path over the Tschiffnon to the Ansitz Ziernfeld. From here, nature lovers hike in a south-westerly direction and on trail no. 12 further into the village centre of Feldthurns, passing the Laurentius church and Antoniuskirchl and finally to the Radoarhof.There, after a short climb through chestnut groves and mixed forest, hikers reach the Ansitz Moar zu Viersch, a popular and highly recommended Törggelehof. But instead of stopping, culture-interested walkers head southwest and follow trail no. 12 to the Huber in Pardell, a small Eisacktal hamlet.
Here you continue on trail no. 1 to the wonderfully situated Säben Monastery. After a rewarding visit, hikers descend to Klausen and can take the public bus back to the starting point after a tour of the town.
