Discover the world of the smugglers

On the trail of Schmuggi Luggi

Schmuggi Luggi was a master at playing tricks on the watchful customs guards. Along the Smugglers’ path, visitors young and old can follow his tracks and experience how exciting, fraught and sometimes even dangerous the smugglers’ life was.

Become a smuggler

A hiking trail for the whole family

Smugglers’ path combines the hiking experience with the adventures of the bold men of former times. The loop hiking trail starts with a secret path - a path that recreates the thrills that the smugglers experienced on their tours. Different surfaces are explored on foot: Sand, gravel, water, mud, etc. A “Gäßscherm”, a wooden hut that is used as shelter for goats and hay, awaits as the next attraction.

The subsequent “view” enables the hikers to observe red deer, ibex and chamois on the adjacent mountain ranges with binoculars. Look through your binoculars – can you spot Schmuggi Luggi on the rock face?

Exactly the right thing for children

The start of the summer season marks the reopening of our attractive play area at Schafberg Hüsli with the fantastic “Gorillarutsche”, the nest swing, the slackline and much more!

Our goats and Montafon Steinschaf (stone sheep) have also returned from their well-earned winter holiday in our Smugglers’ Land at Gäßscherm. They are just waiting to be stroked.
