HIKING TIPS FROM NICOLE:

Wandern

TIP 1

SCENIC JOURNEY THROUGH TIME BETWEEN ALPINE PASTURE, MOUNTAIN FARM AND ALPINE HAY

The annual farming routine in our region was and still is characterised by "nomadic" farming between the valley and the alpine pastures. The Alpgang is dedicated to this traditional way of farming. Time and space become legible on the Alpgang. Texts on alpine life and the cultural landscape are set in stones. The hike passes through 14 stations between Heimgut, Viehweide, Hutweide, Berggut, Heuwiesen, Vorsäss, Alpe, Hochalpe and Wildheumahd on the Sonnseite in Au. On the way to the mountain, people and societies gain in importance. Landscape becomes legible in time.

14 feet, in the Rehmer cattle pasture not quite 5 cattle, mark as signatures the stone path markers from Rehmen via Berngat and Berbigen, further over the saddle to Liegstein. From Liegstein in the saddle back again and towards Alpe Sattelegg, past Stöggele down to Wika. From Wika via Holand finally back to Rehmen. The signposts contain text panels on the landscape and everyday culture. For orientation, people on the Alpgang follow the small additional signs on the signposts.

WONDERFUL NATURE HIKING PATH ARGENSCHLUCHT - AUER RIED

Route/route description:
From the Au municipal office/car park, descend to the Bregenzerach, left along the river. Cross the road before the bridge, then turn left following the hiking signs "Argenschlucht - Auer Ried".

Points of interest/tips:
The power of water, geology, nature conservation, old cultural landscapes and the mighty Kanisfluh form the themes and stations of the hikes for nature lovers. Over 50 rare plants thrive in the Auer Ried. The damp meagre meadows and scattered slopes with their numerous characteristic old hay huts are interspersed with watercourses, gallery forests and wetland biotopes.
