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.
