Walking in the Brandnertal

Walking in the varied landscapes of the Brandnertal is impressive. Even experienced nature lovers are amazed by the varied offer of extensive walks and easy hikes. Countless paths lead from one picturesque place to another. From very short walks to small hikes you will find just about everything in the Brandnertal. Of course we cannot list every possible walk here. Nevertheless, these few descriptions should give you an impression of the variety. You should also be certain that a holiday in our apartments will certainly mean one thing: no boredom!

ANIMAL LIFE PATH BRAND

On 1.5 km there are interactive play stations and various enclosures with rabbits, goats, chickens, cows, horses, sheep … which make this walk an “animal” experience for the whole family. Walk to your destination, the Alvierbad Brand – after an exciting walk you will find refreshment in the natural lake. Alvierbad – Kneipp facility – Bridge – Playground – Fish pond – Lärchenhof – Viewpoint – Reitstall Beck – Alvierbad Starting point: Alvierbad

Walking time: approx. 1.5 hours

BAREFOOT PATH – PARPFIENZALPE

How do gravel, sand and cold mountain water on an alp feel on bare feet? You can rediscover this unusual feeling and pleasure of walking barefoot on the new 1.5 km barefoot path. Float comfortably with the Dorfbahn Brand to the entrance of the barefoot path.

Tip: The Parpfienzalpe at 1,600 metres above sea level is the only sauerkäsalpe outside the Montafon. Let yourself be pampered with homemade products from the alpine dairy!

Starting point: village railway mountain station
Walking time: approx. 1 hour

ALVIERBACHWEG

In Brand, the Alvierbachweg is regarded as a varied classic. It can be reached easily and comfortably from all parts of Brand. The trail runs along both sides of the Alvierbach. This stream through the Brandnertal valley can be crossed over several bridges. The Alvierbachweg is a quiet, partly shady and easy walk with several stops in cosy Brand restaurants. Walking like it is fun: varied and with many possibilities to strengths.

ILLWEG

Start at Zimbapark – Almteilweg – cross the motorway bridge to Bludenz – turn right at the motorway police into Bremschlstraße – turn left at Tischlerei Schrottenbaum into Illstraße – walk along the Ill to the hairdresser La Vogue, cross the pedestrian/cycle bridge, turn left and follow the cycle path to the pedestrian/cycle bridge* (Quadrella), back along the Ill on Bürser side – short stretch of main road – Zimbapark.

PARPFIENZRUNDWEG

From the village railway on a freight path to the Inner Parpfienzalpe, the starting point of the Parpfienz Circular Path. Shortly after the Alpe we turn off the path towards Niggenkopf and walk up the valley on the south side of the Lorenzitäli. At the highest point of the hike we cross the brook, from there a driveway below extensive mountain pine fields leads back to the Parpfienzalpe. This hike is particularly worthwhile in early summer due to the splendour of the flowers. The flora in this area was already praised by botanists in the 19th century. Tip: Instead of the goods route Dorfbahn – Parpfienzalpe we recommend the “barefoot path”. Starting point: mountain station Dorfbahn Brand

Walking time: approx. 1.25 hours
