Directions

Circular trail dedicated to the theme "Original Val Casies Valley Ox" at the head of the valley. Already 200 years ago, the delicate meat of the Val Casies Valley oxen was enthusiastically talked about; it was even served at the imperial Easter lunch in Vienna. The trail begins at the valley floor of Val Casies Valley /S. Maddalena, stretches along the “Talblickweg” path, and on the way back passes by the Reierhof farm, the Regiohof farm store, and by the Waldsamerhof farm dairy, before returning to the head of the valley. Along the trail one is pleasantly surprised by the "animal" presence.
