Themed hiking trails

Discover the cultivated landscape

Along themed hiking trails in all regions, learn about the local architecture, way of life and traditions

Hiking individually on theme trails

In all Vorarlberg regions, hiking trails lead to the traces of history, living culture, traditions and natural features. They can be hiked individually and at your own pace, alone with the whole family or with friends. Some of the themed hiking trails in Vorarlberg stimulate not only the body, but also the mind. Routes on the local alpine and building culture help to open up the places and the surrounding landscape from an unusual, fresh perspective.

      Description

      The popular recreation area above Nüziders and Bludenz shows its artistic vein. On a circular path, six renowned artists each designed a station along the way. The resulting works are as diverse as the artists themselves and interpret their views of life in the mountains.
