Create an itinerary including Rilke Trail
Named after poet Rainer Maria Rilke, Rilke Trail stretches for about 1,700 m (5,500 ft) and gives access to a natural reserve. Almost flat for its entire length, the trail can be done easily by most visitors as a light walk. Along the way, you'll encounter white rocks and shrubs facing the sea, with spots from which you'll be able to see the entire gulf of Trieste. Although this is not a difficult walk for most, be sure to wear sturdy shoes and bring some drinking water and sun protection. Put Rilke Trail at the forefront of your travel plans using our Duino vacation site.

  • We started in Sistiana and walked to Duino, went round the castle there (which in itself is very interesting) and walked back. It's a light walk of about 2 kms each way, but you will want to stop on....  more

  • I loved hiking this trail. It is better to wear trekking shoes, with my sketchers I felt all the rocks I was walking on. The intense perfume of flowers was a wonderful addition. Be ready to take a lot of pretty pictures of the coast.
  • Wonderful hiking trail even in hot summer. For the whole length you should start at Sistiana tourist office. You can leave your car here. The trail goes right to the castle. Enjoy!
