This walk starts right at the Bischoffsplatz car park. The climbing trail to the right of the Kneipphäusl snack station leads directly into Tauferberg forest. Once on top, a level trail forks off: the Waalweg Trail - a former irrigation ditch still flanked by a small brooklet - was used for watering the meadows in long past times. Follow the route until you get to the cart trail that leads back to the starting point.

The walk starts at Bischoffsplatz. To the right of the Kneipphäusl recreation station, the path leads up to the Tauferberg forest. At the top, a flat path branches off on the left - you are at Waalweg. Directly next to the flat high-way trail runs a brook, which used to serve the irrigation of the fields. Also one or the other waterwheel can be found here. Follow the path until you return to the normal path that leads back to the starting point.
