The new Wine and Apple Trail in Schenna

Bacchus, the god of wine, and Pomona, the goddess of tree fruit, were the inspiration for the new Wine and Apple Trail, which provides a glimpse of Schenna’s unique cultural landscape high above Merano. With a walking time of a good hour to an hour and a half, both trails promise hikes with plenty of insights and views amongst the vines and orchards.

THE WINE TRAIL
The Wine Trail ties in with Schenna’s centuries-old tradition of winegrowing. More than 20 stations along the way tell of the work in the vineyard, share knowledge, report on historic events and reveal curious facts about the noble grape juice. Over a distance of 5.3 km, the trail leads, sometimes steeply, sometimes in leisurely fashion, through the sun-kissed terroir and in the process provides fabulous views of Schenna Castle and the spa town of Merano. The Wine Trail can be completed in a good hour and a half. However, the many attractions along the way – such as a flavour station – encourage walkers to take a little more time. Not least so that they can pay a visit to the wine cellars and farm shops, which are practically right by the trail.

THE APPLE TRAIL

The origins and myths, customs and history, cultivation, combating of pests, harvesting, beliefs and superstitions: since just recently, everything that there is to know about apples can be discovered on this circular trail through Schenna’s sun-kissed landscape with its magnificent views. Through informative texts and interactive displays the Apple Trail gives hikers a closer insight into Schenna's fruit-growing area and its history. Covering a distance of 3.7 km and with a manageable elevation gain of 180 m, the Apple Trail is suitable as an entertaining hike for young and old alike, on which not only beehives and apple wind chimes can be found, but also farm shops where you can try home-made products.
