Enjoy the beautiful view of "Brixen's Balcony" in the Schneckgasse!
Leaving the village centre, you come to the so-called Schneckgasse by way of a short, up-hill trail. Passing very mature trees and meadows abundant with wild flowers, on this atmospheric stage of the trail, not only the beautiful village is in your line of view. The complete upper levels of the Brixen valley from Kircberg to the glacial terraces of Westendorf present themselves to you. Discover all there is to know about the country and its natives on information shields enroute - where better to form a first impression of your holiday destination than here, on "Brixen's Balcony"? Hazelnut, whitethorn and other shrubs provide for foliage-filled trails along the mountain-side stonewalls with flower-filled alpine meadows at eye-level. Downhill the trail is fringed by magnificent ash trees, some of which have been hollowed out due to decaying heartwood.
From the Lauterbach district, the trail leads towards the valley to the hamlet Feuring, which has maintained lots of its farming character. The shady side of the trail is bordered by extensive spruce and fir woods. Along the side of the trail, you can tread silently on soft cushions of moss, enjoying the herbal fragrances of woodland moss and fern. Before approaching the village once again alongside the Brixentaler Ache, you pass the "Werkstatt Natur" (natur's workshop). As part of the construction of the village's by-pass and its renovation, a part of the Au landscape was newly designed, conforming to nature. Alder and willow trees form a magnificent green overhead enclosure, allowing the sun to sparkle through. The swimming pool and lake are very enticing to bathers in the warmer months of the year.
