At the stations, for example, the exciting legend of the witch of the Gerlosstein is told, you learn what the stone sheep has to do with the Zillertal Doggln and it becomes clear what great importance music has always had for the longest Tyrolean side valley. Many interactive elements make the trail exciting for children as well and so even the youngest mountain enthusiasts can manage the approx. one-hour hike with ease. Tip: Play the world-famous Christmas carol "Silent Night, Holy Night" with the bells or turn the horn of the stone sheep and see what happens! At the end of the Almpromenade you will be rewarded with a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains on the Almtribüne, the box seat above the Zillertal.

Equipment

For an easy tour that lasts a day or several hours, the basic equipment of a hike is enough for you. This includes:

 

 

 

 

 

Good and reasonable footwear

 

 

Backpack (approx. 15-20l)

 

 

Enough provisions: drinks, preferably water in refillable drinking bottles, at least one meal and snacks like energy bars for in between, think also of a small plastic bag for waste!

 

 

Proper hiking clothing: avoid sweating too much and hypothermia, pack a light change of clothes if necessary, a jacket should never be missing and possibly rain gear (pay attention to weather forecast!)

 

 

Sun protection: sunscreen, sunglasses and headgear.

 

 

Cell phone (charged!) with emergency app, ID card, possibly alpine club ID and cash for the huts

 

 

First aid kit, blister plasters and handkerchiefs

 

 

Hiking poles

 

 

  

 

 

Especially as a beginner, your backpack should end up weighing no more than 9kg. The motto is: as much as necessary, as little as possible.
