At the feet of the Texel mountains

Hike along the base of the Nature Park of the Texel mountains with its unique wonders of nature. Round about Partschins there is a multitude of walking and hiking trails that invite you to enjoy undiluted nature. Huts on mountain pastures are waiting for you with tasty Brettlmarende (snack), Buschenschänke (a cross between a countryside pub and a cafe) will spoil you as you walk along the Waalwege (paths along water irrigation canals) with their home-made cakes. We also accompany guests on hikes.

The High Road of Merano

The High Road of Merano is a 90-kilometre route that wraps around the Texel Group and which can be walked in 3-6 days. Vast panoramic vistas of the thermal city and the surroundings of Merano open before your eyes along this famous hiking trail. The northern segment of this trail is quite difficult and is reserved for climbers in good physical form, while the southern trail is suitable for hikers with less expertise and training.

Theme trails

While walking above the village you will discover the remains of the hut of the Stuaner Geada, Teufelshände and the Hexenplatz. This legendary trail of Partschins invites you to discover a secret world of fantasy.
