No special safety instructions to be observed. Possibly use sun or rain protection and take something to drink with you.
It should be noted that there is an increased risk of accidents and injuries during winter hiking. Especially in winter, special attention must be paid to the condition of the paths. Suitable clothing, good footwear and possibly hiking sticks provide additional safety.
The trail starts at the parking lot of the Jungholz tourist office. There you will already find the first letter of the village name. Depending on the speed and length of stay at the individual letters, approx. 2 - 3 hours must be planned. Those who need a short refreshment can make a detour to one of the restaurants along the way. The circular path leads past herb gardens, a well-kept miniature golf course and the Jungholz rock bath.
