Senn’s Adventure Trail

On the family-friendly adventure trail in St. Anton am Arlberg, there are many natural wonders to be taken a closer look at.

The Sennhütte mountain hut is famous in winter for Après Ski, but it has also much to offer in summertime, such as the trail “Senn’s WunderWanderWeg”. This very special adventure trail starts at Lake Maiensee above St. Anton am Arlberg and takes you past more than 20 different stations as well as the “Edelweiss Path” in a 1-hour walk. An excursion for all the senses! Here, at 1,500 m asl, the day with your family ends then with a stop at the children’s playground and with a sage or apple mint drink for the parents on the terrace of the Sennhütte mountain hut.

The Senn’s Adventure Trail comprises 25 different stations. On the Alpine Flower and Herb hiking trail you can discover the diversity of local herbs and flowers. Particularly interesting is the Mint Avenue with more than 40 different types of mints. An amazing fragrance! Below the largest edelweiss of the Alps with more than 100,000 blossoms is located, with energy loungers to relax in the middle. For kids there is a fairy meadow, a Witch Garden and the “Edelweiss Path” with interesting facts about this flower. On the Barefoot Trail you walk over grass, meadows and stones, and afterwards you proceed on the Water Trail focusing on the topic of water. In the WunderWald forest, however, you can discover the peculiarities of the forest. At the 16 stations such as the Insect Hotel, the Ravenous Tree and the Moor Bath, interesting information on the forests are provided for adults and kids.

Another station is the nature and water playground of the Sennhütte mountain hut with a tree house that has been newly built in a hight of 13 metres. From the two large platforms, you can enjoy a breathtaking view. In 2009 the Sennhütte mountain hut, strictly speaking the adventure trail, was awarded with the innovation price for ideas and nature as well as with the innovation price for the best offer for kids in gold. In 2017, a Summer Award and a Guinness World Record followed - the Sea of Edelweiss has the world’s “largest flower arrangement by number of blossoms” (107,126 pieces). Generally speaking, an unforgettable day is guaranteed!
