Known as the as the gateway to the Texelgruppe Nature Park, Parcines is the entrance to two hiking areas, each served by its own cable car
. To the north, the Texelbahn Cable Car leads up the Sonnenberg mountain, while on the south side the Aschbach Cable Car reaches up into the Nörderberg mountain.
There are paths and hiking trails
at different altitudes totalling 240 km: from the flat Waalwege trails along the ancient irrigation channels on the hillsides above Parcines to the high altitude mountain terrain with 13 peaks rising above 3,000m a.sl.. There are easy children’s walks as well as more challenging treks along the Merano High Mountain Trail. A hiking holiday in Parcines also includes guided tours
and the excitement of Geocaching.
