TUX Welten – themed footpaths for children and adults
The magnificent Alpine landscape of the Tux Valley in all its facets
Since summer 2016, themed trails have fascinated small and big visitors to the Tux-Finkenberg region. In the "Naturwelt" (nature world), the "Tierwelt" (animal world), the "Wasserwelt" (water world), the "Gletscherflohsafari" (glacier flea safari) and more, immerse yourself deeply into the Alpine mountain world of the Tux Valley and discover the unique, exciting landscape of the Alps up close and with all the senses.
Mother nature created unique habitats for us all. From the central station of the Finkenberger Almbahn lifts onwards, the themed footpath "Naturwelt" brings many of these natural habitats closer to adventure-seeking hikers. Be amazed, grasp and understand is the motto – and not just along the marsh trail with its very special marshland experiments.
Ca. 4,8 km with 400 m height difference - 3 h - not continuously suitable for buggies - sturdy shoes.
Balancing on the millipede, climbing a spider's web – at various game stations, fascinating interactions between the organisms are brought closer to visitors to the "Tierwelt". The spirit of discovery of young and old alike is awakened in the animal treasure hunt and the water games, while you wander blissfully through the Tux alpine world.
Ca. 3 km - 2 h - continuously suitable for buggies.
How much water does a person need? How do thermal springs come into being? Informatively and excitingly, the themed trail "Wasserwelt" starts from the "Schwebender Wasserhahn" (floating faucet) and leads through the world of the vital natural element. Some stations of the enjoyable hike for nature enthusiasts – such as the large waterfall swing or the target shooting with water pumps – require courage and skill!
Ca. 2.8 km - 1.5 h - continuously suitable for buggies.
Together with "Gletscherfloh Luis", the glacier detectives solve tricky questions and get ever closer to the treasure on their hike through the adventure course. The treasure map is obtained at the till at the valley station in Hintertux. And the Flohpark Sommerberg flea park with attractions such as a play tower, a pedomotive go-kart course, a climbing wall and a giant slide is the ideal way to see out an exciting day in the unspoilt nature of the glacier.
Ca. 2 km with 150 m height difference - 2 h - continuously suitable for buggies.
