Winter hikes in Kastelbell
While skiers practice their sports up in the mountains, hikers explore the Vinschgau down in the valley, also during the winter month or rather at the change between winter and spring.
In Vinschgau spring begins a little bit earlier. Therefore, you can discover the first heralds of spring already in February, for example near the irrigation channels on the sunny mountain called Sonnenberg.
Just now the Sonnenberg in Vinschgau offers perfect conditions to make lovely hiking tours between snowy mountains and the green valley. The paths along the old irrigation channels in winter are often snow-free till 1,800 m above sea level and the mostly pleasant temperatures makes the hiking tour very comfortable.
Tip for a hiking tour starting in Kastelbell
The hiking tour goes from Kastelbell to Schnals, following an old irrigation channel. The 5 km long tour begins in the centre of Kastelbell and leads on path number 3 to the Juval Castle. You walk through chestnuts woods and you can watch original irrigation-tools near the beautiful castle. Tip: After the excursion you can make a stop in the restaurant "Schlosswirt" near the Juval Castle. It has an excellent cuisine and offers a historical atmosphere.
