With our hiking guide Helmuth we start in Laion and hike along the Walther von der Vogelweide circular trail in the direction of Ried. Along the hike there are three, of the total of 8 stations on the history of Walther von der Vogelweide, you also make a short detour to the birthplace of the famous minnesinger. Then you hike further down the valley and cross the Grödner Bach stream. From there the hike leads through the forest, with a slight ascent to the Castel Forte. After a short refreshment, you can visit the former home of Oswald von Wolkenstein, one of the most imposing castles of South Tyrol.
