Autumn hiking tour on the Margarete Trail in Terlano

From Terlano to the medieval Neuhaus Castle on the Margarete Trail.

On a very sunny late autumn day we drive until the village of Terlano, where we take the road towards Meltina. After some hundred metres, where the Margarethe Trail starts, we park our car at the side of the road.

The Margarete Trail was built in 1963 by the municipality of Terlano. The name of the trail goes back to Margarete, Countess of Tyrol, who lived at Neuhaus Castle. In fact, the Margarete Trail leads us along the sunny side of the mountain directly to Neuhaus Castle, where we discover the inside of the ruin, enjoy the warming sun rays and the surrounding panorama.
