The master of the art of distillation

The wonderful sunny plateau above Landeck is a real insider tip to take nice and extensive walks and hikes. Starting in Grins, with its beautiful and remarkable Gothic church and healing waters, the pleasure hike goes through the village of Grins and then across the fields to Stanz. The route goes either along the field path or a little higher through the forest along the irrigation waal. Accompanied by views of the magnificent Tyrolean mountains, the trails lead to Stanz, the birthplace of the famous baroque master builder Jakob Prandtauer and the home of the famous Stanzer Zwetschke plum, which thrives particularly well here, ripens fully and develops full, spicy and sweet aromas. Here the route ends in one of the great distilleries, Stanz has 56 of them with almost 500 inhabitants, in which the plum is processed into noble distillates, fruit liqueurs, jams, chutney and plum ketchup. The distillers are looking forward to a visit and are happy to invite you to guided tastings.
