Chestnut Trail

Chestnut Trail

On the path of the South Tyrolean chestnut
A line of chestnut groves extends from the abbey of Novacella/Neustift near Bressanone/Brixen all along the slopes of the Isarco Valley as far as the high plateau of the Rittner and down into the
Bolzano/Bozen valley as far as Runkelstein castle with its fabled frescoes: the ideal route for the “Keschtnweg”. It should not only be thought of as an Autumn excursion though, because the landscape is
extremely attractive all year round thanks to the diverse vegetation of the area.

The well marked route leads through mixed forests vibrant with colour, lush green meadows and imposing chestnut groves – a very special experience. Along the "Keschtnweg" Sellers of Local Produce offer regional products for sale.

The chestnut
In Europe the chestnut , more than most other species of tree, has performed a distinct and vital service; so important that it has earned the right to be known as “Brotbaum” - bread tree (until modern times the chestnut provided nourishment for at least 6 months of the year). The vital importance of this type of tree, even at our latitude, is still well known thanks to a variety of writings and sayings.

The "Keschtnweg" is especially popular during the season of "Törggelen" .
