From the centre of Rifiano at 500 m asl, we walk up the Via Hohlgasse, leading across the apple orchards, following the “Waalweg“ signpost up to 600 m asl, where the Rifiano Waalweg trail stretches. We walk towards north, at the edge of the vineyards and fruit orchards. A great view of Rifiano, along the foot of the Monte Scena, opposite the Val Passiria with the villages of Verdines and Scena.
Then we proceed across the broadleaf forest. When we come upon the trail n°5 (to Rifiano), we walk down to the village and we reach the beautiful Madonna Addolorata pilgrimage church, built in Baroque construction style. This style is best reflected by the steeple and the altar in the interior. On the trail “Kirchweg” with its stations of the cross that were installed about 50 years ago, we walk back to our starting point.
