Mountains with fairytales and legends: the somewhat different experience


Anyone who wants to see Lech through different eyes is invited to a surprising and moving world. The Green Ring is a hiking route that combines the moody mountains with mystical spirits of nature and mythical creatures with the help of a literary hiking map. Be prepared.

As in certain forest clearances, in particular gorges and behind one or two rock formations lies a truly fabulous story. And very special creatures.

Nature and fantasy: anyone who is up for it will be amazed

With a great deal of empathy, a feel for the mysterious surroundings and a wink of the eye the artists Daniela Egger and Nikolaus Kocher created a world of legends and fairytales that takes a closer look at the unusual. Existing natural landscapes were included and artistic installations were added with affectionate ease. Coordinated to the old legends and stories that were especially written for the hiking trail the Green Ring leads to mythical creatures and geographical unique features.

In summer 2020: Opening of the Seekopf-chairlift for the 10th anniversary of “The Green Ring”

The 3-day hike “The Green Ring” is very popular with both young and old, thanks to its successful combination of scenic alpine nature and culture. Here you’ll learn to see the world with different eyes and discover, equipped with a literary hiking map, an alpine world full of mystical nature spirits and legendary figures.

In June 2020, it’s now 10 years that The Green Ring has been open to avid hikers to discover. In honour of this anniversary, the Seekopf-chairlift is now also open in summer and autumn. From 1/7, it will provide convenient access to the hiking world of the Green Ring. This way you don’t have to complete every single stage, but can also directly step into the 2nd stage and discover wonderfully scenic, high alpine natural beauty around Zürser See Lake. In addition, the Seekopf restaurant awaits you with fine regional delicacies, Zürsersee Lake with a floating platform and a public barbecue area to relax.
