From San Floriano at Egna the Sentiero di Albrecht Dürer takes to the earth pyramids of Segonzano in the Cembra valley.
The legendary Sentiero del Dürer is a long-distance hiking trail, starting from the Klösterle near San Floriano in South Tyrol, leading through the forests and mountains up to the earth pyramids near Segonzano in the Valle di Cembra valley. It is about 40 km long and for the entire path, the estimated walking time is about 8-9 hours. But don’t worry, the path is divided into different sections and features different levels of difficulty. So it is your choice where you start and where you stop.
Description of the entire Sentiero del Dürer / Dürerweg:
- Starting point is the Klösterle at San Floriano near Laghetti/Egna, South Tyrol
- About 2 km after Piazza Laghetti with its fountain and the judgement stone, you reach the deep gorge of the Laukasbach river, which can be traversed on the so-called “Roman bridge”.
- it proceeds to Pochi di Salorno and the Passo Sauch (915 m) to the Lago Santo (saint lake), at 1,200 m asl down to Cembra and Faver, past the Castello di Segonzano to the earth pyramids of Segonzano
Please note: the famous artist Albrecht Dürer has walked all the 40 km. That’s what the wonderful watercolour paintings prove.
