Wat je gaat doen
After picking you up we'll drive 15 min out of Bolzano towards the mountains, to the start of our hike. We will start our walk by hiking through the apple plantations before getting to the wood. A small path will lead us up the hill where we will reach the first medieval castle, Schloss Boymont (20 min). There we will climb the main tower and enjoy a stunning view of the valley and Bolzano below. If you feel adventurous I can show you the bunkers from World War II hidden under the castle. The hike continues through the woods and a steep canyon to the second and even more beautiful castle, Schloss Hocheppan (30 min). There we will visit a chapel of the 12th century of great historic value. Before heading back down we will have a taste of South Tyrolean gastronomy in the castle's restaurant. On the way back down we will walk through a stunning forest, there I will show you some of the alpine plants and tell you of their uses (20 min). If you feel like it, I will be delighted to show you our village's winery on the way back to Bolzano.
I have grown up playing indians and cowboys in the ruins of these castles. This is how I have discovered some of the places that I will show you. Growing up they ceased to be playgrounds and became the history books from which I learned about my region's past. My passion for history and the outdoors led me to become a hiking guide. I now successfully work all over the world as a trekking guide, but still love to come back to these places of my youth.

To and from the start
Waar je zult zijn
The castles of Boymont and Hocheppan are well known, but little visited by tourists. The bunkers in the area are completely unknown and impossible to find without local knowledge, they are ideal to explain the recent history of Italy and South Tyrol. The hidden corners of the forest we'll walk through require the knowledge of somebody who has visited them a thousand times. The winery on the way back is only locally known.
