A family-friendly circular trail starting in the village centre at the Rüfiplatz. The course stretches along the golf course, across the meadows southeast at the foot of the Rüfikopf. The landscape fascinates and the Aubsblick on Lech particularly. This is probably one of the most popular ways for a short walk.

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting point is the starting point at the Rüfiplatz. The Lech-Promenade to the south upstream, until Hotel Pfefferkorn can be seen on the left. Pass the hotel and after about 3 m take a sharp left turn slightly uphill into a side street. The road leads south-east through the district of Ebra, soon a signposted asphalt path branches off to the left again. The path leads to the edge of the forest. Here it goes now left northeast on a forest way slightly uphill. Already from here a magnificent panorama over Lech am Arlberg and the 3-hole golf course reveals itself. After about 70 metres you reach an equipped barbecue area. Everything you need for a barbecue is there. Food for grilling and possibly paper plates or cutlery are to be brought along. The slightly hilly and stony path winds northeast until after about 1.5 km the path reaches the edge of the forest and an agricultural path. There's another rest area here. Turn left at the crossroads and follow the agricultural path south-west past the stable over the meadow slightly downhill towards the village. After 500m you reach the asphalt road in Anger. From now on the asphalted side road leads through the district of Anger to the church square. Here is the stone place with stone sculptures from 6 different kinds of stone. These witnesses of the earth's history invite you to search for geological "traces". Circle around the church and you reach the paved parish path again the starting point.
