    Learn about the nature of the Brandner Valley at eleven interactive stations along the Natursprünge-Weg! Fun and games for young and old are guaranteed along this trail in summer!

    Where does the water in the river come from? What happens on an alpine pasture and how do rocks actually get up the mountain? There is a lot to discover on the interactive hiking trail, which was created in cooperation with Inatura Dornbirn.

    The Dorf- and Panoramabahn takes you up into the Brandnertal mountains. Slightly downhill the hiking trail leads from the Burtschasattel to the Inner Parpfienzalpe and further to the Dorfbahn mountain station. The trail can be walked in both directions.

    Tip: More exciting riddles are waiting in the explorer booklet. Available at the ticket offices of the Bergbahnen Brandnertal.

    For particularly curious little explorers, there is a puzzle booklet at the valley station of the Dorfbahn.
