This hike runs through the bottom of the Upper Inn Valley between Tösens and Ried, following a stretch of the Reschen Pass, an ancient route through the mountains that was extended in Roman times to become the Via Claudia Augusta. The Roman bridge in Tösens takes its name from this road, although the stonework probably dates from the Middle Ages. Asterhof farm, run by Christian Sturm, is located directly on the former Roman road. Here, special emphasis is placed on a farming system involving sustainable, closed-loop production. Horses work the fields where the grain is grown before it is ground in the farm’s own mill using water power and then baked into bread in the on-site wood-burning stove. The path continues along the Inn to Ried, where we switch back to the other side of the valley.

 

On the return leg, we pass the so-called “Sterzingerhaus” in Steinbrücken, a district of Tösens. It is the oldest house in the municipality and shows clear architectural influences from the southern side of the Alps, such as its name and painted façades.
