Fee 5.00 for the tasting. There is no hike on public holidays. Minimum number of participants: 4 people, maximum number of participants: 9 people.

The sheltered, sunny location, the dry and warm climate, skilful irrigation and the hard work of the locals created a plum paradise in Stanz. Of the 160 households in the municipality, 53 exercise the right to distillery. The well-known "Stanzer Zwetschke", which is one of the numerous culinary regions in Austria, also grows there.
12:10 pm Travel by bus from Landeck / Zams train station to Grins, hike through the village of Grins to the sports field, then continue along the forest path to Wasseralp towards Stanz. You follow this path, which turns into a forest path and you reach the "cross-bearing" where a bench invites you to linger. After a drink break, we continue to the ruins. There you can enjoy the breathtaking view. When you return to Stanz you come to one of the distilleries for a tasting (tasting approx. ½ hour). Families with children can stop by the Dorfwirt in Stanz instead of the schnapps tasting. Together you take the bus back to Landeck at 4:55 p.m. (5:10 p.m. Landeck center).
