In the mountains – a little closer to heaven
It’s time to reward yourself for the hardships of everyday life.
And the Tyrolean mountains are happy to reward you. Whether it’s a summit hike, a mountain bike tour to an alpine pasture or a day just relaxing: a summer holiday in Tyrol provides plenty of material for beautiful memories.
When the scent of thousands of alpine flowers unfolds over the meadows, the ringing of cow bells echoes from the alpine pastures and the sun warms idyllic mountain lakes to bathing temperature, then it’s time to go out and explore Tyrol with all your senses. Hiking and mountain tours, mountain biking, climbing, rafting on wild mountain rivers, relaxed bike tours in the valley plains, paragliding at dizzy heights – the wealth of activities and sports opportunities for which the country offers is almost limitless. Many offers are specially tailored to families with children, be it in the high ropes course, in the play park or kayaking. Experiences to remember fondly.
The Arlberg Trail – Across all mountains
The sporty long-distance hiking trail Arlberg Trail connects all five Arlberg villages Lech, Zürs, Stuben,
St. Christoph and St. Anton. In three stages and with the help of cable cars, a total of 40 km of hiking trails in a spectacular alpine landscape can be mastered.
The signposted circular hiking trail covers a total length of 50 kilometers, almost a fifth of which is covered by cable cars. Ideally, you start in St. Anton, Lech or Stuben in a clockwise direction, so that the routes and cable car rides are perfectly intertwined.
If you don’t want to complete the entire tour, you can also choose individual stages or easier alternative routes.
Attention detectives: who can crack the riddle?
There are 14 stations distributed over the entire place where there are riddles to be cracked. The exciting trail starts at the tourist office in St. Anton am Arlberg.
The first station is at the hiking board in the park. The route continues via Getrud-Gabl-Platz and the museum, back to the old train station, on to Arlen Castle and via the church and the Old Thönihaus to the destination, which is again at the starting point at the tourist office. In between there are other well-known locations along the circular route.
The four-digit solution code can be calculated once all the puzzles have been successfully solved. With the right code, a little surprise awaits all successful detectives at the end. The detective trail is suitable for adults and children who can already read and write.
