The Green Ring
A unique hike
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.
