The Venedigerloch or the Schorren cave castle has been on the agenda for a long time and I have to say: it was worth it - the hole is already impressive. However, the access is not suitable for everyone (surefootedness, climbing a little on the rope) - more information see link above
Otherwise, the views from the rocks on the Albtrauf of Bad Urach are always beautiful.
The weather was also good - so another nice day in the immediate vicinity

Final round of the Adige Valley😪
Via the Nachtigallensteig to Prissian to the stronghold of the old walls (castles, ruins, chapels in a confined space)
Continue into another world to ⭐⭐⭐⭐Camping Tisens and enjoy ☀️ and that on the terrace. I have to say that it deserves its 4 stars.
Return and then descent via the adventure trail.
That’s it ... we had a nice day in South Tyrol / Etschtal

Enjoy on the Tschögglberg high plateau. You have to subtract 800hm 🚡.
Beautiful hiking & biking area and not so overcrowded.
A break at the Lingeralm and since everything was fine here (service, food, prices + ☀️) I sat way too long.
But it wasn't bad either, since the climbs without electricity are already quite toxic and, accordingly, 🍺🍗🥩 consume 😜 calories

Very nice round in golden October conditions. However, as expected, there was a crowd at Lake Kaltern and Lake Montiggler (cars and buses 🙄)
A few km further on the small Montiggler Lake, little activity and wonderful to sit and 🍻🌭
The bike path from the Montiggler Lake down into the Adige Valley is of the finest quality, among other things. with 2 tunnels.

Due to the slightly worse weather forecast only today, a bit of sightseeing planned.
Bolzano old town as always very nice but even in October there were crowds of people on the move or sitting in the street cafes.
So a short passage - collect impressions and off to Sigmundskron Castle or Reinhold Messner Mountain Museum. What can I say: tremendously good, absolute recommendation - the € 12 entry fee is worth it. In any case, however, plan at least 2 hours.

Still a bit of chaos, as there is still no free parking space - but have now parked directly in front of the square and can use all the facilities. So everything is ok😊
However, it took some time until that was clear and therefore only made a shortened hike. And still had bad luck: the Bittnerhof tavern was closed 😡. It was still nice, with fantastic views of the Adige Valley and the Dolomites.
Conclusion: from tomorrow it will be better - I hope so ...

After we had found a parking space in the middle of the apple orchards at the Pircher for the night (all hell is going on in Trentino) we made a first little exploration round. Drive to Lana and then on foot into the Gaul Gorge.
Now it's off to Gasthof Pircher 🥩🍷🍹🍻, where the parking space fee is consumed.

From the Alb plateau first descended to the Barnberg cave and then further into the valley towards Neuffen. Then ascent to Hohen Neuffen with a break 🥜🍻. Continue on the bike path to the starting point of the 🪂🪂, then through the hellholes and finally to the glasses.
Great weather, best conditions - it was great
