Into the Enger Grund
The Große Ahornboden (Great Maple Grounds) at the end of the toll road into Rissbachtal is a botanical rarity at an altitude of 1200 metres. On 240 hectares, framed by rugged meadows, there are over 2000 maple trees. The oldest of them have up to 600 years in the gnarled branches.
This popular excursion destination is the starting point for numerous hikes and summit tours. A completely inspiring and family-friendly mountain experience is the walk into the Enger Grund. More flat than uphill, the path winds along the crystal-clear stream into an oversized amphitheatre. In the green cauldron under the thousand meter high rock walls between the spray kar and three-prong splits, a longer rest is then unavoidable for looking and enjoying. And the young hikers also get their money's worth: The end of the valley with its gurgling streams and gently sloping flower meadows is a perfect adventure playground.
From the parking lot you stroll over to the Engalmen, Tyrol's largest alpine village with show dairy and inn. Now continue in the valley floor on a wide path inwards. After the bridge over the Enger Bach the path to the path and the valley becomes a little narrower. After another stream crossing, the end point is reached at the backmost point, the Enger Grund.
Pleasure promenade in front of a gigantic mountain scenery.
