Undertake a day trip, between two and five hours in length, or embark on a hiking tour of two or three days. The possibilities at the Arlberg region are sheer endless. Discover the well-hidden flower landscape at 2,000 metres above seal level and admire species not indigenous to the valleys. Follow the footsteps of the pioneers on the circular trail “Mutspuren-Rundwanderweg” at the Galzig or enjoy the gorgeous view over Flirsch and the Stanzertal valley, rewarding hikers on the “Kapellenrundwanderweg”. The theme trail “Schnann” invites you to dive into its history while the theme trail “Flirsch in alten Ansichten” takes you all the way to the Antonius chapel, built in the 1600s.
You do not necessarily have to explore the Alpine scenery completely on your own. Optionally, you can turn to an experienced mountain hiking guide, enabling you to very special insights into the mountain world. The mountain hiking school in St. Anton am Arlberg offers guided tours throughout the whole summer.
Should you unexpectedly encounter serious problems during your hiking tour and find yourself in sudden need of professional help, you can turn to the emergency app of Bergrettung Tirol, the regional mountain rescue unit. Their precise localisation process and “mute” emergency message service ensure a quick rescue.
