To the Sulfner Pond

The pond is at its loveliest in summer. White water lilies cover the pond while yellow irises, floating water plantains, marsh horsetails, bulrushes, bur-reed, and a host of other plants thrive at the shoreline.

Route description
The hike to Sulfner Weiher Pond leads first from the Nusser parking area in Avelengo on trail no. 14, ascending up a slight grade to the Sonnenheim Restaurant. The route crosses the street there, runs past the Innergruberhof farm, and turns at the fork towards S. Caterina/St. Kathrein. At this point, we reach the picturesque Sulfner Weiher pond, known for its unique vegetation.
The hike descends slightly, running past the Sulfner Riding Stable to S. Caterina, which offers a magnificent view over Merano and ends along the blocked-off paved road back to the starting point.
Tip: Information stations provide information about the pond’s flora and fauna.
