    The Maiser Waal flows from Saltaus in the Passeiertal to Meran Obermais. Fed from the waters of the Passer it runs on the eastern side of the valley, below the Schennaberg.
    It is especially beautiful in spring, when - early / mid-April - the fruit trees are blooming! During the hike, you can not only observe the nature directly on the corn Waalweg, but also look to Scena and on the other side of the valley with village Tyrol, Kuens and Riffian and throw into the valley to the Jaufenkamm.
    The Waal itself flows mostly open, only partially, the water disappears in pipes under the way.

    An almost level path that can also be walked with children.

    Along the old irrigation canals, left and right again and again the beautiful orchards and impressive views of nature, make every hiker's heart beat faster. A tour that is highly recommended, especially in the early autumn when the landscape has put on a new dress in color.

    The Maiser Waalweg runs below Saltaus until shortly before Meran and is about 8.5 km long. The entire route has a slight slope. However, some sections are not very well maintained and need maintenance. Not wheel or stroller compliant but good for pedestrians.

    The Maiser Waal was historically documented as early as 1462 when Archduke Sigmund approved the building. The Waal was completed in 1473 and today it is largely preserved as it was built. The water flows except for a few places in the open, often stone-built canal, which was partly even hewn into the rocks. The Waal is still in constant operation and supplies the water for the fruit goods in Obermais.

    One of the most beautiful Waalweg trails I've visited so far. Except for a few places, the water flows in the open, often stone-walled canal, some of which has even been carved into the rock. The Waal is still in constant use and supplies the water for the fruit estates in Obermais.
