“Walking is decelerating. And decelerating simply means slowing down.”

The Green Ring: fabled and secret trails

Follow the mythical creatures of folk tales in stunning locations: The Green Ring circular trail provides the perfect contrast to ordinary city life.
Mythical figures fit perfectly in the enchanting scenery around Lech-Zürs am Arlberg. You can expect to encounter powerful giants, petrified wizards, and cunning witches on the Green Ring circular trail. It’s a three-stage hike across mountain ridges and deep valleys, past magical mountain lakes and waterfalls - with hidden installations and sculptures along the path that entertain you with local legends. The newest addition to the interactive walk is the Green Puzzle Ring, which features riddles for you to solve on the trail.
 
Nature itself makes a lasting impression: journey up to the Rüfikopf on the cablecar, enjoy the view of the secluded Zürsersee, stride through a cotton grass meadow, or have a  picnic in the mystical "Sagenwald" forest of fables. All these moments can revive your creativity and continue to make an impact long after the vacation is over.
