The Green Ring

During this three-day, multi-stage hike along the Green Ring in Lech Zürs, hikers and families journey through a world of artistically staged legends.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

due to construction work at the mountain station of the Zuger Bergbahn, the first section of the 3rd stage of the Green Ring - from Zug via Sagenwald to Balmalp - is not passable this summer!

 

This section of the 3rd stage can only be mastered via the alternative route Zugertobel - Kriegeralpe.

 

The Sagenwald is in principle accessible from Zug to the "cross", however, there may be temporary closures or obstructions due to the construction work.

 

These will be communicated in due time. Current information can also be found on our website.

The Green Ring

Stroll, discover & marvel: Those who hike through the Green Ring’s mountain world, should be prepared to encounter some odd sights along the way: cheeky mythical creatures standing in the middle of the landscape, mighty Taurin the Giant enthroned atop the Stierlochkopf mountain, or mysterious scribblings in the magical forest of legends. Rooted in nature, tradition and a healthy sense of imagination, the Green Ring opens up a detail-rich world of legends to hikers.

Reach new heights and the hiking area with the Seekopfbahn cable car

Summer 2020 was the tenth anniversary of the opening of the multi-award-winning Green Ring themed hiking trail. In recognition of this anniversary, the Seekopfbahn cable car in Zürs started summer operations for the first time. The cable car transports visitors up to the start of the 2nd stage of the Green Ring while also allowing access to a wonderful hiking area now accessible via cable car. The Seekopf mountain restaurant invites guests to enjoy regional specialities, a playground, breathtaking scenery, and the Zürsersee lake with a floating platform. A public barbecue area invites you to relax and enjoy this fantastic area, which is just one of many along the Green Ring.
