* Definition suitable for buggies:

Trails that are marked as suitable for buggies can be accessed with a baby buggy because of their sufficient widths and solid surface.
However, you should be aware that you are out in the mountains. So we recommend:

  • quality footwear
  • mountain buggy
  • a brake at the buggy
  • wrist strap in case you should slip
  • Shouldn’t you just be by yourself, let your companions help you to push the buggy.

Wasserwandersteig (Water trail)

A waterwheel at the beginning of the Wasserwandersteig shows how the power of water was already used in the past for mills and sawmills. The trail continues past the “Wave” to the “Water Curtain”, with the “Water rides” and the newly designed “Giant spring” following thereafter. “Water drops” invite you to pause and rest at  the millstream. Hear the melody of the water which adapts precisely to the mood of the listener. Depending on how you feel, it can sound happy, placid or even sad . The stream flowing past is the accompanying orchestra with the millions of falling water droplets as its musicians. Beyond the Tuff Grotto’s “Fanggaloch” cave, the trail continues to the Sulphur Spring, which gets it red colour not from sulphur, but rather from a high content of iron, giving it a distinctive smell. The Sauerbrunn Spring is located at the end of the trail. Records dating back to 1571 already mention the coming of strangers and princes from South Tyrol, Switzerland and Bavaria to use the healing power of the water. Even today, water from the “Tyrolean Sauerbrunn" is used to treat diseases of the kidneys, liver, intestine, stomach, as well as respiratory congestion, asthma, etc. The water is available to buy in bottles and can also be tasted on site at the spring.
