Themed Hike
Albigen Trails in Grins

The Albigen Trails in Grins give walkers the chance to learn more about the four natural dangers ("Albigen") that according to legend haunted the village of Grins for many decades: earth, fire, water and air. The village was on many occasions hit by floods, storms, fires and landslides until the local population finally managed to tame Mother Nature and turn her awesome power into a much-needed spring providing water. Since then the village has been spared. To celebrate this rich history, the village has created four different learning trails about the four elements. One of them is the six-kilometre-long "Albigenpfad Wasseralb" all about water and its incredible power.
