The theme of the walk:
On the trail of sun sunnsat between Luttach and St. Peter we can live the natural experience and the cultural history. We can see and admire very high figures of wood, realized for the international symposium of the wood carving. When we reached the head, we can have the look in the live of the farmer and we can try the specialities of the valley. And we walk on the end of this trail of sun sunnsat and the mountains and the glaciers greet us from far away.The path crosses several brooks: Schwarzbach, Rotbach, Trippach, Frankbach, Keilbach and Wollbach. The waters thunder down into the valley and are fed by the glaciers of the Ziller Valley. Every tree and every stone could tell you a story.
In times gone by, the path was used from some young men, who carried a ladder to their girlfriend's window, stories which often ended in family feuds. Traders and beggars walked from farmhouse to farmhouse and offered their merchandise or asked for alms. In former times, they were used also to go to school or church, as well as for transporting products.
Monuments: Numerous farmhouses along the way bear witness to varied and difficult times gone by. Often, the farmhouses had their own chapel in order to thank God and to keep their promises to God. Even today, they are a place for mediation and thoughtful prayer. In the cronicles it says that in 1878, a huge avalange of mud and stones came down from the Rotbach and buried the entire smelting works of the Prettau copper ore mine (Gisse section).
We hope have an enjoyable time walking along this path ... and enjoy some typical Ahrntal Valley specialities along the way.
We look forward to meeting you. SUNNSAT - pub owners.
