July in Vorarlberg between the Bregenz Forest and the Große Walsertal
Outdoors into the natural environment
Blons wine hiking path
The Blons wine hiking path leads from wine cellar to wine cellar in the beautiful municipal Blons in the Große Walsertal. Finest Austrian wines are offered for tastings along the way. Led by experienced wine guide Bernd Lange and hiking guide Maria Ganahl you will learn a lot about the region as well as the St. Gerold priory.
Blons avalanche path
60 years ago, in January 1954, several avalanches hit the centre of the Große Walsertal: 57 people of the then population of 350 died, houses were destroyed, stables and animals were swept towards the village. Today three memorial paths along the hills and the documentation centre remember this horrific catastrophe and also shows how the locals of this small municipal found their way out of the catastrophe and rebuilt their homes.
- Leusorg path: 6km and an altitude of 260m
- Schutzwald path: 4km and an altitude of 250m
- Verbauungs path: 4km and an altitude of 250m
Along the Flower-Hiking Educational Trail
The Große Walsertal biosphere reserve offers several educational and wonderful hiking trails. The Flower-Hiking educational path is definitely one of the best examples. Start at the Stafelalpe chair lift's middle station and take an 1-hour walk through the wonderful landscape and discover rare flowers and plants.
Look forward to gorgeous hikes, unspoilt natural environment and lived hospitality in Austria's most western county. We are looking forward to your no obligation holiday enquiry or your reservation for a stay at the Madlener Mountain Hotel and will immediately respond with an offer for your holidays in July.
