3 Cross-border nature trails

The ways over the holes

Across the Val Casies Valley-Innervillgraten Saddlebecks In 2002, we initiated an EU-INTERREG project with our neighbours of the Villgraten Tal (Austria). The project is called "Über die Jöcher: Villgraten - Gsies."

Three nature trails provide you with information about traditions, cultivation and the smuggling trade in the past decades.  


There are three themed nature trails including information panels:

  1. The smugglers’ path: An insight into smuggling activities between Villgraten Tal Valley and Val Casies Valley and focuses on smugglers and customs officials.
  2. The cultivating path: Rural customs, alpine pastures, haymaking, cattle, dairymaids and shepherds are depicted here.
  3. The traditions and customs path: Here it's all about the Val Casies wood turners, medicinal herbs, bad weather, festivity, butter and cheese making.
