    In the mountains south of St. Anton the Alpenrosenweg meanders. Because of the many alpine roses, the nature is mainly in the color red.

    A fantastic tour with highlights in nature. In St. Christoph, just at the height of the Arlberg Pass, this circular walk begins. It runs along the border between Tyrol and Vorarlberg and combines, so to speak, the best of two federal states. Rauf go over the Berggeistweg, back then over the Paul Bantlin way. Have fun!

    Nestled in the Jakobstal below the Hohe Rifflers (3,168 m) is the Edmund-Graf Hut (2,375 m). The Hohe Riffler is one of the most visited mountains. Too right! Depending on your condition and mood, you can commit it or stop by the Edmund-Graf hut. View of the three thousand meter included! The tour first runs through the Malfontal, in which with the cultivated lovely Malfon Alm (1,687 m) there is a fine rest stop. A bit south of the Alm, you say goodbye to the "civilization" to dive in Jakobstal. Wildly romantic nature as far as the eye can see.
