To be free.
In all of us lies an adventure. A free spirit. Someone who pays attention to his own rhythm and not to his diary. Someone who’d rahte listen to the birds than the daily news. Someone who wants to feel the nature with all his senses and who goes on his own discovery tour through the beautiful creation. Free, easy and wild.
Let this inner voice take command – at least for a short, wonderful time.
The Arlberg has always been a popular hiking area. Those who love the mountains feel particularly at home in Oberlech. The Golden Mountain offers a wide variety of tours through the alpine landscape.

“Walking is child's play. It is accessible to everyone - young, old, poor, rich, male, female. Every hiker creates his or her own personal style. Just go. The logo on the jacket is not decisive. Be open, become permeable to the influences of nature and landscape and not least to the inner voice. On the way, open the gates of perception as wide as possible. For the eye axes, scent fields, sound spaces in which one dives. Our senses, which atrophy in urban everyday life, sharpen again - that's what matters. Strains and the willingness to sometimes go to one's own limits are part of it. The essence of hiking is the experience of freedom: "I have sovereign space and time."
(Ulrich Grober, German journalist and author, *1949)
