Secret trails of legend on the Arlberg

The Green Ring

Steeped in tradition, nature and a plenty of imagination, hikers have an entire world of legends to explore

On the three-day stage hike through a lovingly created, modern world of legends, hikers will wander along mountain ridges, through valley depressions, and past mountain lakes and rivers that are exposed and hidden around Lech Zürs. But there is even more up there to discover: mythical creatures and their legends, fascinating stories and exhibitions, brought to life and created especially for the Green Ring. To enter this world of legends, hikers need simply take their time and appreciate the beauty.

The beginning of the 2020 summer season in Lech Zürs marks the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Green Ring theme trail.  On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the hiking experience, which has received several awards, the Seekopfbahn in Zürs will be operating in the summer season for the first time. This will facilitate the start of the 2nd stage of the Green Ring and open up a wondrous hiking area also by mountain railway. The Seekopf mountain restaurant welcomes you with regional specialities and a playground, and the Zürsersee with a floating platform and magnificent scenery. A public barbecue area also invites you to linger in this wonderful place – one of many on the Green Ring.

The founders of the Green Ring

Daniela Egger

The sculptor Daniel Nikolaus Kocher and the writer Daniela Egger designed the themed trail. While Daniel Nikolaus Kocher created fabulous figures and inspiring installations, Daniela Egger wrote imaginative and gripping fairy tales. Geographical peculiarities, field names and mythical creatures served as inspiration for the pair to populate the mountain world of Lech Zürs with mythical creatures.

The legends of the Green Ring lead through hitherto unknown, interesting and peculiar areas, which are often difficult to see with the naked eye. The works of art and carefully selected resting places help hikers to sharpen their awareness of the hidden beauties to be found in the Lech Zürs am Arlberg region.
