The Green Ring: Arlberg’s Fabled Trails

Powerful giants and petrified wizards, cunning witches and a mystic mountain that quakes deep inside: the stuff of legends now graces the idyllic landscape around Lech-Zürs am Arlberg. You’ll encounter them on the Green Ring circular trail, a three-stage hike across mountain ridges and verdant valleys, past magical lakes and waterfalls.

 

The newest artist-designed trail is the Green Puzzle Ring, home to a trove of secrets worth revealing between Lech and the Rud Alpe. A literary map created especially for the trail helps hikers to discover each site, even those seemingly hidden and less obvious to the naked eye. The rugged beauty of nature itself inspires: from the cablecar journey up to the Rüfikopf and the view of the secluded Zürsersee to the sensuous experience of strolling through a cotton grass meadow or a picnic in the "Sagenwald" forest of fables. Each interlude and breathtaking vista along the Green Ring awakens the senses, deepening that sense of renewal nature alone imparts.
