The Varied Appleweg Trail in Natz-Schabs

An absolute must for nature lovers

Apple cultivation has a long tradition in South Tyrol. At over 750 meters above sea level, mountain apples take on a special aroma as the result of temperature differences between day and night. A walk on the Apfelweg Trail in Natz-Schabs is an absolute must.

The trailhead for this circuit hike is located in Natz. Once you’ve set off, the reason behind the nickname Apple Plateau becomes immediately clear. The apple circuit trail is particularly delightful in spring: it’s like walking through a sea of flowers. The 7.5-kilometer-long themed trail leads from Natz (889 m) to Raas (820 m) and back to the starting point, allowing hikers to appreciate the rich natural beauty of the area. The hike through the surrounding countryside leads through pine forest, apple plantations, meadows, biotopes and chestnut groves. The outlook point on Mount Ölberg, which has comfortable loungers, is a good place to take a break along the way. There are also points to help you find your own center, so relaxation is ensured.

Consistent with the realities of our region, there are information boards along the way where you can read interesting facts about apple cultivation in Natz-Schabs and South Tyrol as apple country.
