Snow Shoe Tour - Brixner Gangl
We begin this circular tour in Brixen im Thale’s village centre. Just after Metzgerei Knauer (the butcher’s shop) we turn right up the hill. We follow this road until we reach the gate where we attach our snow shoes. This trail is signposted “Schneckgasse”. We remain on this romantic path until we reach the junction with the “Zinting” trail where we keep to the right, downhill. At the Reitlwirt (unfortunately we have to remove our snow shoes at this stage) we cross the road and walk under the railway underpass. We follow the asphalt road for approx. 50 m, then turn left onto a field path. At the end of the path (which runs parallel to the railway tracks) we keep to the right and see the first farmhouses of the hamlet “Feuring”. Just before the Weberhof (riding centre) we turn to the left and follow the access road to the Rieser farm. Shortly after the farmhouse, we turn to the right onto a field path which brings us to a road. Follow this road downhill, past the Restaurant Winklstüberl and we arrive at a bridge. The forest path on Brixen’s “Schattseite“ takes us to a wide track which is used for tobogganing in Winter. We follow this, keep to the right and arrive at a large playground. Just before the playground, we cross the bridge and after approx. 5 minutes arrive back in the centre of Brixen im Thale.
