Step by step: Earning yourself an Arlberg hiking pin!

Starting in the summer of 2020, a new hiking pass will be introduced featuring 48 destinations and hikes in the Lech Zürs region, which will be rewarded with points. Once a certain number of total points have been achieved, hikers will receive different hiking pins (from bronze to gold) as a reward. This old tradition is now being revived. In the age of digitalisation and the extraordinary times we are currently living through, points are collected exclusively via the smartphone with the free app “SummitLynx." Best of all: The app also works offline. Maps are pre-downloaded to your mobile phone during installation. Entries are cached in the app if there is no network coverage and then synchronised with the server once a data connection is available.
