"Legends and stories about the "Sextner Tal" valley and the Alta Pusteria/Hochpustertal valley have been told and passed on here for years. Now these many fairytales and stories have been used to create a Fable Trail (Fabelweg) in Sesto. Figures depicting characters from all kinds of legends have been set up along the route, giving visitors an insight into a different world.
From Sesto, the Contemplation Trail (Besinnungsweg) takes you to the exciting Fable Trail, which leads to the mountain station of the Helm cable car. For less experienced hikers, the Fable Trail can also be reached by going downhill from the Helm mountain station.
