Experience the running and Nordic Walking Arena Tannheimer Tal

Whether you are a breathless beginner or a well-trained mountaineer: in the Tannheimer Tal everyone who likes to get some fresh air and explore the surrounding mountains on foot gets his money's worth. All active people, from hobby sportsmen to professionals, are spoilt for choice day after day: Tyrol's largest path network offers 26 marked routes which extend over a total of 186 kilometres. Beginner's loops are just as much a part of it as demanding mountain runs. And so that all guests know which route suits their physical condition and requirements, a specially prepared map and small boards provide information about the altitude profile, reason for difficulty and length of the route - the running and Nordic Walking map.

Along meadows, over green pastures, along glittering mountain lakes... Walking and running in the Tannheimer Tal is not only the best training for the body, but above all a balm for the soul. The starting points for all those hungry for exercise are in the six villages Tannheim, Grän- Haldensee, Nesselwängle- Haller, Zöblen, Schattwald and Jungholz. From here, walkers, Nordic walkers and runners follow the signs. They are easy to recognize: Male with the sticks. In addition, all routes, as well as ski slopes, are divided into the categories black, red and blue. An optimal marking, which among other things has contributed to the fact that since 2005 the probably most beautiful high valley in Europe can officially call itself "Running and Walking Competence Tower".

Head north and turn right at the church, along the Schnitzerweg to the Langenschwand district. An entertaining descent to the Scheidbachalpe in the Vilstal follows. Continue on the gravel path, past the Kalbelehof-Alpe and over a short, steep climb to the Rehbach Rest Hotel. From there cross the Rehbach and turn right. Continue over a meadow saddle into the Steineberg district and downhill to Unterjoch. In Unterjoch turn right and pass the Vordere Sorgalpe. After a short climb through the forest back to the starting point. 

Enjoy this untouched landscape
