Unique Family Themed Hike in Aberstückl, Val Sarentino/Sarntal Valley

The Trail of Legends in Aberstückl

The legends transfer from ancient times into the present day and even tomorrow will not go out of fashion, as they tell us something about the world around us. Legends have a long memory and touch on the deep secrets behind things. The land tells its tales, but all of these stories tell of the land at the same time.
(after Brigitte Weninger and Jakob Kirchmayr)

The Sarntal Valley is rich in myths and legends and this fact inspired us to revise and illustrate these stories, most of which have been handed down orally from ancient times, for children and their parents.

The Trail of Legends (Sagenweg) in Aberstückl in the Sarntal Valley, which was designed by primary school children and teachers, is a unique themed hike from the Wippingerhof high up above the little village of Aberstückl along the adventurous route of the Sagbach Gorge as far as the Durr Alp. Parents and children can get to grips with 9 myths and legends in the form of a quiz. The Trail of Legends brochure with the quiz is available at the start of the route at the Wippingerhof or in the Tourist information office.
