Walk along the Schelmsteig path to Auna di Sopra

Circular walk on the Renon starting at Soprabolzano to Auna di Sopra and back via Riggermoos.

We start our walking tour at Soprabolzano (Oberbozen) where we follow the marker no. 2 which proceeds to the Lobishof: along small asphalt roads at the edge of the village, further on the beautiful promenade no. 16 through the forest. Here we follow the path towards Auna di Sopra (Oberinn) and turn left to the path no. 32 (Schelmsteig). On the narrow and partly rocky path we actually pass three small gorges!

90 minutes later we arrive at the village of Auna di Sopra with several rest stops. After a short rest we take the path no. 17, past the guest house Weber, to Riggermoos. Along our way we can watch lamas playing in the meadows. This South American camel-type is quite common on the Renon, also on our way back to Soprabolzano (marker no. 6) we catch sight of a mob of them.
