Hiking around the picturesque mountain area in Lech/Zürs is remarkably beautiful along the Green Ring. This route has three stages and a distance of 28.5 km. With its wonderful nature, mountain lakes, and rivers, on the one hand, and with its magical aura, on the other hand, this route is straightforward to hike. The so-called theme-hiking path, which has received multiple awards, tells 35 sagas waiting to get explored. Along this path, you will find artworks that make your hike a vicarious experience.
You start the first stage in Lech. Then, taking the gondola, you go up to the Rüfikopf, and from there, you hike down to Zürs. While hiking down, you will stumble upon something you don’t expect: a library in a mountain hut; there, you might take a book and relax before hiking on.
As for stage two, you start your hike from Zürs the next day. If you don’t want to hike 400 meters up, you can take the Seekopf-Bahn, taking you to the Seekopf restaurant on the mountain. Arriving on the Madloch, you will find a book to leave a note. On the way down to Zürs, we recommend taking a quick side trip to a thundering waterfall. Then, if you still feel like walking, you can walk back to Lech along the Lechweg or, if not, you can take the bus.
Stage 3 is the last one on this path; you start your hike in Zug. The highlight of this stage is the way through the Sagenwald up to the Balmalp and the Libellensee in Oberlech. This small lake in the forest has already been discovered in the 1930s. It becomes a picturesque place with its boardwalk leading into the depths of the woods; this footpath around the lake is a family adventure and especially suitable for kids. The easy hiking path up to the Libellensee is opposite the BURG hotel, right behind the wooden playground. Along the so-called Arlenzauberweg, you will find over 20 different presentations of flora and fauna, as well as hidden treasures to be seen and examined.
Not giving away the saga of Rolltreppe, we want to arouse your curiosity to discover it yourself. The third stage, your hiking path, the Green Ring, ends at the beginning of your hike in Lech!
We wish you a lot of fun and unforgettable experiences in nature – let yourself get enchanted by the magic of the Green Ring!
