Be surprised by the different design of the individual letters of the place name Jungholz by different artists from the surrounding area. At the same time they wander through the refreshing nature of the place.

At different points in the village the letters of the village name are placed. All points can be hiked along a circular path or reached by bike. In the production of the individual letters different materials were used, depending on the artist's style. At each art object you will also find a short description for interpretation.

Author’s recommendation

An exciting circular route not only for art lovers, but for the whole family. Impressive creations of letters embedded in the Jungholz nature with all its advantages!

Wir haben in sämtlichen Prospekten von diesem Weg gelesen, in denen er als toller Rundweg und absolute Empfehlung angepriesen wurde. Daher waren wir sehr gespannt und sind extra mit dem Auto aus Tannheim hingefahren. Die Enttäuschung war allerdings groß - der Weg ist NICHT ausgeschildert, man findet weder vor Ort, noch online eine Karte. Und erst nach mühsamem Suchen und nervigen Navigieren mit dem Handy findet man nach 2/3 des Weges ein große Karte mit dem gesamten Weg und stellt dann fest, dass es KEIN Rundweg ist, sondern die Buchstaben ziemlich verstreut in Jungholz stehen und man zB für einen Buchstaben über eine Hauptstraße runter auf den Campingplatz und die gleiche Strecke wieder zurück soll. Absolut keine Empfehlung!

Der Weg selbst ist schön und auch für Kinderwagen oder teilweise Rollstuhl geeignet. Die Installationen allerdings verschandeln eher den Blick auf die Landschaft ... Das Speicherbecken für die Kunstschneeerzeugung wird auf einem Schild als "Höhenweg-Teich" bezeichnet, etwas irreführend.

Ein hauptsächlich asphaltierter Weg, mit einzelnen Höhepunkten, vor allem die Aussicht ist empfehlenswert! Leider vergeben wir dennoch nur 3 Sterne, da der Weg nicht ausgeschildert ist und selbst mit der Outdooractive App wird der Weg teilweise zu einem Ratespiel, wohin man gehen muss. Wir hatten unsere 7-jährige Tochter dabei. Ihr Fazit: Der Spielplatz war das Beste ☺️.
