Waalweg is the German name for the paths alongside the water channels formerly used to irrigate the fields in the valley. These ancient trails along the gentle slopes have been adapted into popular pathways for leisurely walks, especially popular with families in recent years.
Along a still functioning irrigation channel above the center of Parcines/Partschins, the Partschinser Waalweg trail leads past religious sites with spectacular views overlooking the Merano basin. The Rablander Waalweg trail shows how important the old irrigation channels were to agriculture in bygone days. The system of the waterways in Parcines, Rablà/Rabland and Tel/Töll is part of the 80 km Meraner Waalrunde Circuit Trail running across the Merano basin.
