Wonderful circular walk around the mountaineering village Vent.
Distance 2.7 km
A small round in honors: It is true that tour guides think of the "Venter Runde" rather than the famous multi-day Höhentour over the three thousand. However, this mini-edition of the Venter round has the advantage that one can look at the village from its most beautiful side without a backpack and long planning. From the church follow the road through the town, continue over the bridge and then turn left to the house Reinstadler. Pass the Gampenlift and walk along the edge of the forest to the bridge over Venter Ache, cross it and cross the road back to Vent.
Visit the exhibition at the Widum Vent and the exhibition at and around the Mountaineering Chapel.
