Recreation for body, sould and mind
Gries makes a great spot for all those aiming high. At about 600 m altitude you are already a bit closer to the sky than anywhere else. Fabulous Alpine setting, idyllic pastures, peaceful meadows. Indulge in real rest and recreation amid the romantic mountainscape. Nature explorers head for the scenic Maria Hilf Pilgrimage Church where also the Trail of Senses starts: enjoy a spiritual and contemplative walking tour in unspoilt surroundings. This easily ascending route travels through meadows and forests from Gries along the Stations of the Cross to the newly installed vantage platform.
Here you enjoy uninterrupted panoramic views of the secluded mountain village with the mighty Stubai Alps, Schrankogel peak and Mutterberger Seepitze summit as lovely backdrop.
The slightly descending trail leads to the Collegiate Chapel. After crossing the Gries federal road, you follow Fischbach brook which takes you back to the start.
Starting point: 20 m below the church, keep to the right
Walking time, both ways: approx. 1 hour
