Discover the mountains
The Enzian is the ideal starting point for your hiking holiday in the mountains. 14 hiking destinations can be reached directly from the Enzian, many other great starting points for hiking tours can be reached with the help of the free hiking bus.
How about a tour to the fantastically beautiful Zürsersee lake? Or you can walk from the Enzian via the Stuttgarter Hütte to the Rüfikopf. Perhaps you would prefer a visit to the Trittalpe, the Monzabonalpe, the Alpe Rauz or the Ravensburger Hütte?
Your options here are almost endless and range from family hikes to sporty, ambitious hiking trails.
Are you doing a hut tour? Tired of sleeping in mattresses and cold water? Treat yourself to a break in the Enzian after these strenuous days. Enjoy the well-deserved luxury of a pleasant shower, a cozy bed, culinary delights, a visit to the sauna and let us pamper you all round.
Your hiking guide
On request, we can organize your personal hiking guide, who will show you the most beautiful places in our homeland. How about a guided sunrise hike? The day couldn’t start any better! When the golden sunlight makes meadows, mountains and our mountain lakes shine, nature shows its great magic. You forget everything around you, just look into the distance and ENJOY this magical moment.
The Green Ring
Hikers experience this hiking trail in three stages in the footsteps of the legendary “White Ring” ski circuit. The second stage of the Green Ring is an ideal day out for the whole family. The Seekopfbahn cable car in Zürs takes you high up to the idyllic Zürsersee lake. At the Seekopf mountain station, the little ones can play at the playground and then enjoy the wonderful scenery of this crystal-clear mountain lake with the whole family. For our mountain friends, the path then continues uphill to the highest point on the Madloch. You can immortalize your experience in the summit book and past the “bivouac” it goes over the Stierloch to the Zug fish pond.
This guided sunrise tour is an unforgettable and breathtaking experience.
Under the motto “Towards the sun: Hike to the Black Tower” we climb up to the summit cross of the Erzbergsattel before dawn.
During the ascent – when the first rays of sunshine can be seen on the surrounding mountain peaks – it becomes clear that getting up early was worth it. Arriving at the summit cross, we experience how the sun comes to the fore and enjoy this magical moment of the fantastic view! Before the descent, we strengthen ourselves with a small snack and experience an incredible feeling of freedom and tranquility.
