Lovely, approximately 5 km-long hike with wonderful views of Merano and environs.
The hike starts in the center of Dorf Tirol/Tirolo. Take Seminarstraße to the Johanneum (seminary), then head left past the seminary and past the Haselried hotel to Auer Castle. Then follow the signposts up the hill as far as the Tiroler Kreuz (restaurant). Slightly above the restaurant is the start of the Fitnessweg (exercise and hiking trail); continue along this trail (23B) below the restaurant as far as the Farmerkreuz. From here return to Dorf Tirol.
