International Path of Artworks in Felt a themed hike that deftly balances pristine landscape, culture and tradition. Starting point: Tesimo.
Attention: the path is not cleared in winter and can be icy in places. Always wear good shoes!
Starting from the parish church in Tesimo follow the main road for approx. 100 metres towards Prissiano, then at the crossroads near the bakery head left downhill on trail no. 2 continuing straight on as far as the public swimming pool and camp site. Now turn left along the road (signed 2A) as far as Hotel Burggräfler. The International Path of Artwork in Felt begins here, on which every year new felt artworks are exhibited. All of the works of art are made using South Tyrolean mountain sheep’s wool using different felting techniques and take hours of work by hand. All year round they defy wind and poor weather and bear the scars of this, until eventually they completely fall apart. The broad forest track ends after an approx. 2 km-long circular hike; head past the church of St. Christoph and back to Hotel Burggräfler again. Now take the outbound route again back to the centre of Tesimo.
