At different points in the village the letters of the village name are placed. All points can be hiked along a circular path or reached by bike. In the production of the individual letters different materials were used, depending on the artist's style. At each art object you will also find a short description for interpretation.

The trail starts at the parking lot of the Jungholz tourist office. There you will already find the first letter of the village name. Depending on the speed and length of stay at the individual letters, approx. 2 - 3 hours must be planned. Those who need a short refreshment can make a detour to one of the restaurants along the way. The circular path leads past herb gardens, a well-kept miniature golf course and the Jungholz rock bath. 

An exciting circular route not only for art lovers, but for the whole family. Impressive creations of letters embedded in the Jungholz nature with all its advantages!
