A family hike becomes an adventure in Schnalstal Valley. Numerous trails lead to easily accessible mountain inns and huts, offering young and not so young a unique experience in nature. On the sun terraces, in the middle of this fascinating mountain world, the innkeepers serve fresh, traditional dishes such as dumpling soup, kaiserschmarrn (fluffy sugared pancake) and apple strudel. If you go hiking with an inquisitive nose and are also lucky, you might see a chamois now and again or even a golden eagle high above the mountains. Other than that, there are lots more animals waiting for the family at the mountain huts: cows, horses and cats. So: Have breakfast, get your rucksack and off you go to explore nature!
