  • Höhenprofil

    Along the municipalities of Nüziders, Bludenz and Braz, a cultural-historical theme trail, the "Sunna Trail", has been inspiring visitors since summer 2019. The second stage leads from the Daneu bridge in Bludenz to Rungelin.

    The “Sunna Weg” gets its name from its location on the sunny side of the valley and its course through the Sonnenberg community of Nüziders. Nüziders was once the ancestral seat of the county of Sonnenberg. On this hiking trail close to the town, 25 panels provide information with cultural-historical focal points. They also cover scenic, natural history and geological topics. The focus is always on conveying stories about people and the landscape.

    Stage 2

    The second stage of the theme trail runs from the Daneu bridge in Bludenz to the Rungelin district in Bludenz. The start and end points and all entry points have been chosen so that they can be easily reached by public transport. Along the way, numerous loungers and benches invite you to enjoy the view of the surrounding mountains.

    Along the second stage you will also find the interestingly designed Bludenz forest nature trail.
